And, of course, this performance raises the question of how right wing politicians from (at least) Reagan invoking 'Born in the USA' (1984) to Ryan proclaiming himself a fan of Rage Against the Machine (last month), seem to be more or less totally tone deaf to the substance of so much great rock music.
