Who are Rage Against the Machine?
Rap-rock outfit Rage Against the Machine rocketed to fame with the release of their self-titled debut album in 1992, earning widespread critical praise and commercial success. The group would release three additional full-length albums during their initial nine-year run, including Evil Empire, The Battle of Los Angeles, and the cover album Renegades before parting ways in 2000. Following the group’s disbandment, frontman Zack de la Rocha ventured into a low-key solo career, while the remaining members went on to form rock supergroup Audioslave alongside former Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell. Rage would join forces again in 2007 when they performed together for the first time in seven years at the Coachella music festival. Rage continued to play live shows and festivals for the next few years before splitting again in 2011. In 2019, after an eight-year hiatus, they announced they would be reuniting for a string of shows in 2020. RATM have been cited as having a large influence on the nu metal genre. They are known for their revolutionary political views, which are expressed in their music.
