New ZACK DE LA ROCHA Song To Appear On 'Fahrenheit 9/11'-Theme Album

September 9, 2004

New songs from former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE frontman Zack de la Rocha and THE NIGHTWATCHMAN, an alter ego of Tom Morello, the former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist, will be included on a "Fahrenheit 9/11"-theme compilation album being spearheaded by director Michael Moore, The New York Times reports.

The collection, which will be issued via Sony BMG, will feature artists who Moore said provided motivation to him and his crew while they were making the film. It will also include previously released songs from SYSTEM OF A DOWN, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, BOB DYLAN, THE CLASH, and JEFF BUCKLEY.

Moore is not entirely new to the music business. He directed music videos for two RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE songs and the SYSTEM OF A DOWN song "Boom", which also appears on the compilation.

Music executives have been reticent to discuss plans to market the albums but say they expect them to sell well past Election Day.

"This is not a record about the next 55 or 56 days in America," said Glen Brunman, the executive in charge of Sony's soundtrack division. "These songs deal with issues that will be with us long after Nov. 2 no matter who's president." Read more.
