Speaking to BBC 6 Music, Morello said: "A little dose of anarchy for the Christmas holidays is good for the soul."

The guitarist also revealed that in addition to the Facebook group's charitable efforts -- over £30,000 has been raised for the homeless via the Shelter charity -- he too would be putting his hand in his pocket.
"Me personally, I am going to donate part of my proceeds from the sales to an organisation in the UK called Youth Music, which is the UK's largest children's music charity," he said. "My hope is that one of the results of this whole thing is that there will be a new generation of rockers who will take on the establishment with the music they write."
