Tom Morello and Chuck D close out the Grammys… and provide soundtrack for Hilton and Delta ads. Chilling.—

We think someone in the Grammy Awards production booth has a fabulous sense of humor. The night ended with a rap/rock extravaganza featuring host LL Cool J, Public Enemy front man Chuck D, drummer Travis Barker, and left-wing Occupy cheerleader Tom Morello.
But as time ran out, CBS decided to cram in some last-minute corporate ads that cut into Morello and Friends. The irony — or the outrage! — wasn’t lost on viewers.
Airing corporate sponsors while Public Enemy & Tom Morello r still playing? Back in the day that would result in a cap in someone's ass.—

I wonder how Tom morello feels having his performance drowned out by the corporate sponsors.—

Seriously, Chuck D, LLCoolJ, ZTrip, Tom Morello & Travis Barker are bringing the house down, and they to go commercials. That is just wrong.—

Oh, well. At least he got to squeeze in his militant fist salute and Social Justice Guitar Message before the Machine drowned him out.
