Rage Against The Machine Wants Susan Boyle To Perform At U.K. Concerts

Rage Against the Machine has reportedly asked Susan Boyle to appear at its concerts in the United Kingdom. While this could be viewed as a peace-making gesture to Simon Cowell, who Rage robbed of the coveted "Christmas Number One" this year, Zach de la Rocha doesn't seem like the kiss-and-make-up type. This leaves two options: The band has more eclectic music tastes than anyone could have guessed, or Boyle is merely the next target in the band's long-standing and lucrative rebellion against everything corporate.

As a long time fan and a kid who came up on their music/message, it pains me to say this but... I wish they would just go quietly into the sunset already.

Don't feel bad. Rebellion in the age of Sony Music is a losing proposition.

i think it has to do more with goodwill and universal acceptance than anything

They want horns but will probably die butt headed.

There must be some sort of explanation, but it seems incredibly nonsensical.

And excellent point, mburr.

Correction: Rage Against the Machine have (not 'has)reportedly asked Susan Boyle to appear at their concerts (not 'its') in the United Kingdom.

I don't know whether it is the result of word processor grammar checks or what, but why do US writers insist on using singular verbs with collective nouns? Nobody I know ever says 'Chelsea is the leader of the Premier League' except American sports journalists!

Thanks, dennisd, but that's actually a main difference between American English and British English. On paper, we still treat group nouns as singular. In spoken American English we often follow the British convention (which means maybe it makes more sense), but for now, this is correct.
