yeah, I was big into Rage back in 8th-10th grade or so, but I always kinda forget about them -- I would listen to them again, though -- maybe next time I go to the library I will see if they have the CDs so I can rip them to my computer.

back in '05 I woulda been psyched for new stuff, these days I could care less.

their stuff doesn't get old, I don't listen to it often but whenever I do I enjoy it just as much as I did back in the day

this

i haven't kept up with their music, because i don't really need to
what i have listened by them so far has had a lot of influence on me, so if they can produce anything as good as their first studio album, i'll be happy to give it a listen

word yeah I dig the tunes. I just kinda fell-out with a lot of stuff I dug before I became a hepcat post-punker (some for good reason, others just happenstance).

they are devotees of the RIFF, I can get behind that.

maybe not so much the "che guevara, dude" thing anymore, though.

I saw Rage Against the Machine get booed severly offstage in 1992.


lol why?

Rage is cool. I was never a huge fan or always agreed with their radical lefty lyrics, but I always appreciated them.


Tom Morello is a pretty underrated guitarist imo. He's not the greatest talent-wise, but he always had his own unique style of playing.

They played Killing the Name at a KKK rally.

It was a different time I guess.
They were opening for Jane's Addiction
The whole nu metal scene hadn't happened yet.
Ppl were confused with this rock band that has a dude trying to rap.

In context 'they' are the people who organised the campaign to pay for Tom Morello's new *******, or whatever the point of it was.

Kinda think Rage Against the Machine should just call it a day if I'm honest, let us remember them fondly.

I mean, I may be wrong, they might come back and release a great new album, but I'm struggling to see how they're still that relevant. Politically I imagine back in the 90s they were seen as quite 'out there', which was part of their draw, but in this day and age (with social media and whatnot) I don't really see how they could say much that we haven't already heard.

Maybe I'm just not big enough a fan. I saw them when they headlined Reading festival back in 2008 and I mean performance-wise they were amazing, but musically I've never found them particularly mind-blowing and always thought they were a tad overrated.

No bands ever call it a day, if there's still money to be made then they go on the road, every one.
Except for Led Zeppelin and that's only because Plant couldn't sing anymore.
