Biographyby Jason Ankeny

Rage Against the Machine earned acclaim from disenfranchised fans (and not insignificant derision from critics) for their bombastic, fiercely polemical music, which brewed sloganeering leftist rants against corporate America, cultural imperialism, and government oppression into a Molotov cocktail of punk, hip-hop, and thrash. Rage formed in Los Angeles in the ... Read more in Amazon's Rage Against The Machine Store

Product Description

Product Description

The uncompromising debut from American rock quartet, Rage Against the Machine, opens with the fast-paced “Bombtrack” and continues its intensity through the remaining nine tracks. The self-titled album combines metal riffs with hip-hop to produce a style in a similar vein to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. One of the best hard-rock records ever made.

Product Description

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE Rage Against The Machine (1992 Austrian issue 10-track CD album featuring their debut album which spawned the singles Bullet In The Head Bombtrack Freedom and Killing In The Name with lyric booklet)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of THE albums you must own 15 July 2002
By A Customer
RATM burst into the scene with this album. It is sheer class. As soon as the funky opener 'Bombtrack' begins, you are hooked right until the final track as you are taken through the expletive filled 'Killing In the Name' through heavier tracks such as 'Bullet In The Head' and heavy/funky numbers such as 'Take The Power Back', and 'Know Your Enemy'. If you own one Rage album, make sure it is this one. Sadly, the original line up have called it a day, and I was privileged to see them perform live. This was also one of the graet things about Rage, in that they are superb live, and equally good on record. This is definitely a must have and shall remain a classic 9 years on from its release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rage.....makes amazing music 25 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
Rage Against the Machine...the name of the band says everything about their style. Pounding beats, amazing riffs, and completely rage filled lyrics and singing-these are some of the things that make Rage Against the Machine so compelling. There is NO filler in this album, it just pounds and rages through the entire length. Anarchy is a constant feature in Rage Against the Machine's songs, especially in this album. Songs like 'Killing in the name of' and 'know your enemy' show exactly how this works. For example, 'F*** you i wont do what you tell me' in 'Killing in the name of' pretty much underlines the entire band's purpose; stirring up controversy while keeping musical elements in their songs. The bands name says a lot about their style - the name is a term for rebelling against the authority, and their music surely proves that the name is rightfully used. Zach De la Rocha's singing/rapping goes very well with the band's heavy baselines and beats. Though this CD is around 15 years old, it still seems as fresh as ever. I think it is a great pity that the band broke up, and even though the remaining members (everyone minus Zach De la Rocha) of Rage against the Machine went on to form Audioslave, Audioslave much less controversial, and (in my opinion) their lyrics and baselines a lot less powerful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Forget "Nu-Metal": this is the real deal 28 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album would be a bargain at 50 quid!! If you worship at the rock-rap temple, then "Know Your Enemy", "Bullet In The Head" and the mighty, mighty "Killing In The Name Of" will be your holy trinity. Having said that, the other tracks are no make-weights either with "Freedom" one of the greatest exits to an album that you'll ever hear. More than 10 million copies sold in the US while Fred Durst & co were still sucking their thumbs . Listen closely to the lyrics too - hard hitting, political, intelligent, delivered with bile and menace. Will have you moshing round your bedroom in air guitar heaven!

5.0 out of 5 stars Union 24 Jan 2001
Format:Audio CD
Many associate Rage with the nu-metal revolution. Let me make it clear that Rage are not part of any Limp Bizkitt dribblings. They are the real thing. They are leading their own revolution with political standpoints and views.
The combination of hip hop and rock was originally coined upon by The Beastie Boys. But Rage took this and produced one of the greatest albums I know. Throughout the album the riffs leave you with an unexplainable need to funk. Zack's voice is aggressive and never seems to faulter. Tom Morello is an absolutely quality guitar player. He is unusual in that he comes from a generation of people who believe simple guitar playing is good (Kurt Cobain, Black Francis, Billy corgan). But it is too easy to associate Rage with rockers. Their main influences (not that i like it) lie in the world of hip hop with rap groups like Public Enemy. Perhaps this is what makes their debut album such a classic...
The union between hip hop and rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic album 10 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to dicover this band first time round. I'm writing this review many years later, after just replaying this record for the first time in years. Back then I always thought this was a great album, but now it's turned into a masterpiece. Tracks like wake up, which I thought were good back then are now standouts. I must admit I don't usually go for music with a political slant, as it can all seem to fake. Not so with this record, the rants of Zack de la Rocha are genuine and straight from the guts. Backed with a tight band and a guitarist with perhaps the most unique approach of the last 20 years. Although many people call this "rap metal" don't draw comparisions with the likes of Limp Bizkit. This a genuine record, not the nu - metal and metal core dirge that passes for rock music these days.

I was lucky enough to catch this band live at the time of this record and when "Killing In The Name Of" was powering through the mainstream charts, and was getting regular daytime air play on Radio 1 with all the language blanked out. The band live could only be described as incendiary. This album is a must buy for anyone into music.

5.0 out of 5 stars RATM makes everything else look like :o) 2 Sep 2000
By Iain S
Format:Audio CD
I heard this album 7 years ago, back when I was just 10. Then, to me it was a lot of shouting, a lot of rude words, and funky loud guitars! Nowadays that's what I think when I listen to 'nu-rock' or whatever it is, Korn, Limp, Coal Chamber, and all them. They are just guitars and a guy screaming about rather unhappy things.
Now, when I listen to Rage, I hear something completely different. Vocals that convey the most power and emotion I have ever heard. Zack puts such intensity into all his songs, the quiet ones can make you just as angry as the screaming ones. The style is also much better than anything else I've heard. His singing goes from quiet rhyming to funky hiphop verses, to screaming catchphrases of anger and rage against 'the machine'. This is all backed up by the greatest guitarist today, Morello. He does things that not even I can do with my collection of air-guitars! Briliant solo pieces fit seemlessly with tunes that will keep you motivated and angry. Timmy C on the bass is normally overlooked due to Morello's greatness, but he keeps everything together with catchy riffs. And finally drum beats to keep it all lively and kicking.
I don't need to mention any of their songs for special praise, they all deserve it. This is a brilliant album that makes all other rock bands look amateur.
Thankyou, and goodnight.
