A masked man began appearing in politically charged music videos nearly half-a-year ago. The band he fronted called itself Future User. Its music mixed prog rock sounds with EDM providing a backdrop for visual critiques of police brutality, torture at Guantanamo Bay, NSA spying and GMO foods. But who was this mysterious propagandist? A fourth video, "Mountain Lion" came roaring last month when, suddenly, Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford appeared...and lit himself on fire!
