No doubt Chuck D of Public Enemy, Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and B-Real of Cypress Hill’s intentions were pure. Perhaps they hoped that when Donald Trump heard the flame-throwing guitars and woke slogans of their rap-rock supergroup, ethno-nationalism, neoliberalism, hatred and injustice would cease to be. Yeah well, they won’t — and not only because Prophets of Rage are a bad band.
It's a chocolate box sort of afternoon. At the flagship branch of R Chocolate in Belgravia, three small girls and their mothers are enjoying an after-school treat amid toy soldiers, red ribbons and caramel elephants. An aged billionaire shuffles over to their table. “Have you had some chocolate?” he beams. “Please! You must have some more chocolate…”As a parent, this is exactly the sort of thing you like to see, isn’t it? A stranger plying your darlings with sweeties before teatime?
The National have steadily risen to be the essential guitar band of the 21st century, special like R E M, smart like Radiohead, pre-eminent chroniclers of the unmagnificent lives of adults. Their seventh album finds frontman Matt Berninger still contemplating marriage (“You said we’re not so tied together/What did you mean?”) and no less adept at arranging proper nouns and oblique imagery into melancholy configurations.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
