Full Rage Against the Machine show footage from 1992

This Rage Against the Machine video from 1992 is a musical artifact along the same lines, though not quite as anarchronistic, as the 1985 video of 17 year old LL Cool J live in Maine. This show is at Zed’s Record’s in Long Beach and is almost exactly before their first album came out. Fast forward to about 25:30 when the PA goes out and Zach de la Rocha just keeps singing anyway, the vocals caught super quietly through the camera’s microphones. CowProd, the Youtube uploader (and cameraman) has another couple older RATM videos, including this one from a few weeks earlier.

Thanks, Alex.

Paul Ryan loves Rage Against the Machine and Tom Morello is not pleased

Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello is not pleased about reports of Paul Ryan calling RATM his favorite band. Read his response here.

Don’t mistake me, I clearly see that Ryan has a whole lotta “rage” in him: A rage against women, a rage against immigrants, a rage against workers, a rage against gays, a rage against the poor, a rage against the environment. Basically the only thing he’s not raging against is the privileged elite he’s groveling in front of for campaign contributions.

Chris Piascik sums it up pretty good.

Maybe Paul Ryan should get with Megadeth instead.
