Rage Against the Machine are the band that proves that music and politics can mix. With their self-titled debut (CD) in 1992, they didn’t just deal with some heavy political issues, but became the poster-band for the new crossover genre of politically and socially conscious metal. Twenty years have gone by and the triple-platinum-selling album is still a timeless classic. The twentieth anniversary re-release, XX, saw a pimped-out collection of early RATM mixed with a lot of bonus material.

In between their classic debut and its rerelease, Rage Against the Machine and their phenomenal frontman, Zack de la Rocha, released another three studio albums that demonstrated the quartet's versatility and scope. Evil Empire picked up where the debut left off, The Battle of Los Angeles revealed the band's penchant for funk, and Renegades (CD | vinyl) is a cover album featuring true musical gems. Despite the lack of a new album since 2000, Rage Against the Machine haven’t split up. They don't care about expectations, and do things their own way, being real guerrillas in their lyrics, their live shows and their attitudes towards releasing new material.

May 2016 marked the beginning of a new era for the band. With lead singer Zack pursuing his own music, the remaining members sought to work on their own project. Forming a supergroup called Prophets of Rage, original RATM members Morello, Wilk and Commerford have joined Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill. Loyal rage fans will be stoked to hear that Prophets of Rage plan to perform live shows featuring a ton of Rage Against the Machine material.

While you’re waiting for the supergroup to head out on tour, rage against our RATM merch and take an angst-ridden, riff-laden trip down memory lane with EMP’s range of Rage Against the Machine merchandise, CDs and vinyl.
