Tom Morello, former guitarist for '90s political rap-rock act Rage Against the Machine, has written a new song called "Marching for Ferguson" under his solo-act moniker, the Nightwatchman. Morello debuted the track at the Jail Guitar Doors' Rock Out! benefit concert, held September 5 at Los Angeles' Ford Theatre. The track, inspired by the shooting death of unarmed teen Mike Brown and the ensuing unrest in Ferguson, has a blues-rock feel to it and features the line, "Carving up that golden calf with a blowtorch and gas mask, I'm marching on Ferguson, I'm marching tonight."
