What the hell is happening with Rage Against the Machine? Does this mean anything?

Rage Against the Machine didn’t like a social post from drummer Brad Wilk earlier this month.

Okay, so they were done. Longtime fans would never get to see them play live again and those who came late to the party would never get a chance to experience a Rage show. They’d broken for a third time. Crap.

But this week, a new Rage post appeared, also from Brad Wilk.

Okay, so we see Brad, Tom and Tim. No Zach. The song playing is “Wake Up.” And about that caption: “What he said…”

Who? And what did he say? And what does this mean? Fans are (a) freaking out and (b) annoyed.
