One of the most overrated bands in history. They got popular because they pushed left winged propaganda as shallow as the water in my toilet. Same as the Sex Pistols. That band 100% fucking sucked ass. They just got popular because they where so rebellious, something kids in their teenage years seem to love.

They also introduced the Che Guevara image to the kiddies. So we should thank them for the fact that people wear this cold-blooded murderer piece of shit that luckily got executed on their shirts these days.

Tom Morello was their lead guitar player, also way overrated. I hear that people call him the 'best guitar player ever'. Again, total bullshit. Hendrix, Van Halen, Gilmore and Jimmy Page's shoes have more talent then this guy. If you played the guitar yourself, you'd understand. All his neat solo's sound cool because they come out of stomp boxes you can buy in every music store. Really. This guy has the biggest effects chain i've ever seen.

This band proved that you don't need talent to become famous. If you make music that takes a piss on the govnerment and is left winged in general, there is a way bigger chance of success than if you acually have talent, but don't write songs about politics.

"greatest band ever?". Yea right. Led Zeppelin, RHCP, The Beatles, The Stones, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, The Who, Tony Joe White, The Zombies, Tom Petty....(i could continue forever) Happen to forget about those?
Shit kid with Che Guevara t-shirt: Rage Against The Machine is the best band ever

Me: No, they weren't. If you think that, you deserve to get hit by a freight train.

THE BEST FUCKING BAND TO EVER WALK THE FACE OF THE EARTH. A politically charged revolutionary band fueled by the searing riffs of Tom Morello, the bumping bass of Tim Commeford (aka. Tim Bob, Simmerin' T, Y Tim K, and variuos other aliases), the dramatic lyricks of Zach De La Rocha, and the awesome drums of Brad Wilk.

Popular rap metal band of the 1990s consisting of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commeford, and drummer Brad Wilk. Broke up in 2001 and changed into Audioslave.
Known for their left-wing political views (and lyrics), and for instigating the nu-metal genre of the late 1990s. Unlike most modern nu-metal bands, however, they included many traditional heavy metal techniques such as guitar riffs and solos.
If you are an anarchist or are just angry with the system you live in, then Rage Against the Machine is the band for you.

I'm guessing that the "corporate whore" remark got voted off of here already. Fucking excellent. RATM is the greatest group I have ever heard, bar none. If I could choose only one band to listen to the rest of my life, RATM would be it. As for using a major record label, I find in more ironic than bad that they use a corporation to produce and sell their anti-corporate message. Otherwise, they would never have spread the word so well as they have. Just to bad they split up. It blows worse than anything could.

1. v. To rebel, revolt; To actively or passively fight society or the government.

2. v. One of the best and biggest bands of the 90s; in this respect, comparable to Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They are the other (see Korn) band that led to the nu-metal explosion of the late 90s. The band is known for its extremist militant left-wing liberal lyrics; in fact, RATM was formed to promote the message of a badly-needed rebellion. They are commonly hated by conservatives and feared by soccer moms. They have been accused of using their popularity to promote a liberal agenda among fans; to those people I merely say: THAT'S THE POINT OF THE BAND, YOU FUCKWIT.

The band was composed of driving force, frontman and rapper Zack de la Rocha, fantastic bass player Timmy C, guitarist extraordinaire Tom Morello and the incomparable drummer Brad Wilk. Timmy, Tom and Brad have since joined with the former lead singer of Soundgarden and become Audioslave.

Rage Against the Machine have a completely unique sound. Rapped lyrics accompany guitars with riffs and solos typical of metal, the bass has a heavy influence on the music, resembling funk, and the drums are reminiscent of hardcore punk, but best described as psycho. They also have a very raw sound when compared to most nu-metal. The first album, slef-titled, bears the disclaimer NO SAMPLES, KEYBOARDS OR SYNTHESIZERS USED IN THE MAKING OF THIS RECORDING.

Rage Against the Machine sold out, a severely disappointing fact. Since then, the band has divided, leading to Audioslave and the solo career of Zack de la Rocha. Zack, unlike Audioslave, keeps the intensity and spirit of rebellion in his music.
1. Don't listen to the lies the government tells you, man. Rage against the machine.

Rage Against The Machine is the best band to ever have sat foot in this world - their music ain't just some crap they made up like shitty pop music; their music means something and it is politically inspired. They were a great band and it was a dam shame they split-up. Their music makes you think and that shit is important!
"Tha gut eaters, blood drenched get offensive like Tet
Tha fifth sun sets get back reclaim
Tha spirit of Cuahtemoc alive an untamed
Now face tha funk now blastin' out ya speaker, on tha one Maya, Mexica
That vulture came ta try and steal ya name
But now you got a gun, yeah this is for the people of the sun" - for those who don't know 'Tet' (the Tet Offensive) was a big attack which took place in the Vietnam war and a lot of people died.
