(v.) To hide the fact you sold out rather well by saying "Fuck the transnational record company that is paying me lots" and calling it "lyrics".

(n.) 90's band who captivated audiences with catchy tunes and a communist agenda. Those who are not tools of the liberal media will notice that thier lyrics and political ideas are absolute shit, while they are highly marketable because the average metal fan goes through a stage in thier early teens where they believe communism will save the world from the people they hate.
"Fuck the rich coporations" is what the say, but they end it at giving head.

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.
