Tom Morello was the unfortunate recipient of a hefty wipe-out during Rage Against the Machine’s show last Saturday (July 23), after he was accidentally tackled by a security guard who was chasing down a stage invader.

In footage captured by a fan, Morello and co were in the midst of performing Killing in the Name when a mischievous gig-goer attempted to make their way on stage with what looks like the intention of making the large jump across the pit to the crowd.
