Tom Morello Premieres Eerie New Song on ‘Intercepted’ Podcast

Rage Against The Machine/Prophets of Rage guitarist Tom Morello shared a previously unreleased track titled “Keep Going” via the “Intercepted With Jeremy Scahill” podcast. The interview mostly consists of an interview with Julian Assange, the ever-controversial head of Wikileaks. Scahill claims Morello just “sent it in,” and alludes to him as a “friend” of the podcast. The theme of the ominous, one-chord track seems to be, loosely, “Get thee behind me, Satan,” and it’s scored for just Morello and his guitar. It also definitely sounds like it was recorded on an iPhone, and notably features the cathartic lyric “I pimp-slapped the devil/He couldn’t get my riffs right.”

The song can be heard below, skipping ahead to around 33:00 in.
