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.

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 The greatest ever hardcore fusion 25 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
Firstly, let me cure some people of their obvious ignorance. The Red Hot Chili Peppers have never made hip hop or metal music. The Peppers' music is primarily funk, and is fused with hard rock. The first ever hardcore fusion of hip hop and rock is the song "Sophisticated Bitch" by Public Enemy, featuring the greatest guitarist since Hendrix, Vernon Reid. Since hearing this historic classic, I wished for nothing more fervently than a band that would commit itself to producing this incredible fusion on a full time basis. I had to wait many years for the first to appear, but words cannot describe how worthwhile the wait was. With its debut, Rage has achieved nothing less than to produce the sole hip hop album comparable in both musical and lyrical quality to Public Enemy's "Nation". "Rage" is a unique album, being the first to fuse the two genres of hip hop and metal into a distinct subgenre. Unlike any other previous attempt to bring these two genres together, "Rage"'s music would not simply be hip hop if the heavy metal element were subtracted. The rhythms, basslines and vocals would mark the music as something other. Yet, at the same time, it is obviously hip hop. This unprecedented achievement would be sufficient on its own to immortalise "Rage", yet it is merely the beginning of the album's innovations. The most striking thing is surely the guitar playing of Morello (the greatest guitarist since Reid), which on its own achieves the perfect hip hop fusion: Morello is a hybrid of DJ and lead guitarist. The same may be said of de la Rocha's vocal performance, as he swings effortlessly between the roles of rapper and screaming metal vocalist. Never have I heard such an unbridled expression of angst and rage. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Self-entitled- By far the best of the 3 22 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you think metal is just power chords and noise, this album is going to blow your misconceptions away. The first, and best Rage album, the 10 tracks are all greats in their own right. Most people only ever mention anthemic songs like Bombtrack and Killing in the Name, which are great, but there are 8 other equally good tracks on the album. The band manages to combine great dynamic contrast with great solos of Tom Morello and the attacking lyrics of Zack de la Rocha. In my opinion Tom Morello is one of the best guitarists of our time as well as being one of the most imaginative people on a guitar. He can make his guitar go from sounding like scratching through to heavy, low, "metal" tones. And his solos are not the typical "metal" solos, they are radically different, sounding musical but making no musical sense. A true guitar genius. Just listen to solos on Take the Power Back and Fistful of Steel, some of few. Put together with Zacks great lyrics and rapping, the band rocked onto the scene with this album, and have never really managed to emulate it again. When people get into a band they normally buy the latest album. DONT. Buy this one, even though it is 8 years old, it is by far their best album. Even if you don't like the band, this record is a must have for any disconcerning music lover.

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.
