Rage Against The Machine simply put was a Trojan Horse in rock music. Through a wicked mix of influences, the band seduced rock fans young and old with a new way of thinking. They (metaphorically of course) delivered political pipe bombs. Messages ranging from anti-capitalism to guerilla warfare put weight on the name, Rage Against the Machine. Lead vocalist Zach de la Rocha is also an activist regularly donating and participating in movements centered around police brutality, indigenous rights and Mexican socialism. Fun fact, Rage Against the Machine performed a set once at The Mushroom New Orleans ™ as part of the promo tour of their first album.
