With one of the greatest nu-metal bands set to go on tour next year, The HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience thought it would be nice to take a little walk to memory lane.
Rage Against the Machine is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in 1991, the group consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk. Their songs express revolutionary political views. As of 2010, they had sold over 16 million records worldwide.
In 2000, Rage Against the Machine released the cover album Renegades and disbanded after growing creative differences led to de la Rocha’s departure.
De la Rocha started a low-key solo career, while the rest of the band formed the rock supergroup Audioslavewith Chris Cornell, the former frontman of Soundgarden; Audioslave recorded three albums before disbanding in 2007. The same year, Rage Against the Machine announced a reunion and performed together for the first time in seven years at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2007. Until 2011, the band continued to perform at more live venues and festivals around the world. In 2016, Morello, Commerford and Wilk formed a new band, Prophets of Rage, with B-Real, Chuck D, and DJ Lord.
After an eight-year hiatus, Rage Against the Machine announced in November 2019 that they were reuniting for a string of shows in 2020.
