* DisappearedDad: Morello's father left the family when Tom was only 16 months old and refused to have anything to do with them. Morello joked in a ''Guitar World'' interview that he was looking forward to the band's first African tour so he could visit Kenya "and be like 'What's up, dad? Here's a tape'."



* NotTheIntendedUse: Tom Morello's claim to fame as a guitar player is in how he occasionally elicits very unexpected sounds from his electric guitars; most famously the turntable-like sounds on "Bulls on Parade", which he does by rubbing the strings with one hand and alternating turned-up and muted pickups with the other. The instrumental on "Testify" has him using the ''amplifier jack'' and hitting the guitar bridge with it!

He once spoke in an interview of arriving at the Fender factory to take possession of a custom guitar he'd ordered and seeing another similar one being brought back; when informed that it had defective electronics that caused unwanted noises, he bought it as well.

* SanitySlippageSong: Possibly "Settle for Nothing", judging by the lyrics. "Born of a Broken Man" is also based on Zack's father's SanitySlippage.

In 2016, they announced a new album to protest the presidential election of Creator/DonaldTrump. Earlier during the election season, the band (again except for Zack) joined forces with Music/PublicEnemy's Chuck D and B-Real from Music/CypressHill and performed together under the name Prophets of Rage. Unlike the case of Audioslave, however, Prophets of Rage did play RATM songs, as well as some Cypress Hill and Public Enemy songs, and also some original songs.

The band was well known for the political activism in their songs, and the liner notes usually include contact information to various organizations the band supports. They have also played at large protests, and have several cases of controversial moments: when playing on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' (in an episode hosted by buttoned-down Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes), they displayed the American flag upside down, until stagehands came and pulled them down. Also, when playing "Killing in the Name" at the infamous Woodstock '99, they burned the American flag onstage.

-->-- "Killing in the Name", from their self-titled debut [[note]] The last line is an ad-lib Zack occasionally sings live instead of repeating the second line, as he does in the recorded version. [[/note]]

* TheBandMinusTheFace: Music/{{Audioslave}}. Kind of.

* BigYes: Zack lets out an awesome, raspy ''"YEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!"'' twice in "Sleep Now in the Fire"; once around the start, and again before the guitar solo.

* CoolOldLady: Tom Morello's mother. She's basically the anti-Tipper Gore, starting an organization called "Parents for Rock and Rap". One of the band's live [=DVDs=] even features her introducing her son's band as "the best band in the fucking universe"!

* IsntItIronic: "No Shelter" was used on the Godzilla soundtrack because Sony noticed that they mention the great lizard by name. What Sony failed to notice is that they call it "pure motherfucking filler" (''immediately'' after mentioning Godzilla, no less!) and that the whole song was about slick American advertising disguising real suffering. Furthermore, "No Shelter" has the line "Make you think what you need is what they sellin' / Make you think that buyin' is rebellin'"
