Rage Against the Machine Donating Ticket Sales to Reproductive Rights Organizations

Rage Against the Machine will donate nearly half a million dollars to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois, as the band announced on social media last night (June 24). “We are disgusted by the repeal of Roe V. Wade and the devastating impact it will have on tens of millions of people,” the group wrote in an Instagram post. “Over half of the country (26 states) is likely to ban or seriously restrict abortion very soon, if not immediately, which will have a disproportionate impact on poor, working class and undocumented BIPOC communities.”

1970 Camaro Pushes 1,500 Horsepower

We’ve come to expect big things from the Mundelein, Illinois-based Roadster Shop, although we must say this 1,500-horsepower 1970 Chevy Camaro still blows us away.

This is the kind of build Chevy guys point to when their Mustang-loving friends start trashing their car, only for their friend to complain it’s not a factory build. We don’t care about any of that because this machine is simply amazing and that’s it.
