Editors’ Notes

Rage Against the Machine's eponymous 1992 debut album successfully blended rap and metal with binding elements of punk and funk. But what garnered attention even more than the band's impressive musical hybrid was frontman Zack de la Rocha’s politically charged lyrics; he lambasted oppressive governments, American corporations, and cultural imperialism. In addition to a fidelity remaster, the 2012 anniversary reissue boasts an extra 21 tracks, including three live songs, 12 previously unreleased demos, and six videos. The live recording of “Bombtrack” starts with de la Rocha telling a Minnesota audience about Leonard Peltier’s plight before guitarist Tom Morello invokes a sonic storm. De la Rocha, Morello, and the rest of the band step it up on the live version of the anti-everything anthem “Bullet in the Head,” with echoes of audience participation in the periphery. “Take the Power Back” best exemplifies the rhythm section’s allegiance to '70s funk. Of the demos, “Bullet in the Head” homes in on Tim Bob’s bass skills as he segues through root-note pedaling, harmonic melodies, and fretboard slapping.

RAGE KILLS IT AGAIN

Demo versions are strait rage

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 early '90s out of the wreckage of a number of local groups: vocalist Zack de la Rocha (the son of Chicano political artist Beto) emerged from...
