Back in March of 1992, the debut album from Rage Against The Machine was still seven months away from being released. That little fact didn't stop Zack, Tom, Brad and Tim from storming Zed's Record in Long Beach California for a fiery in-store performance, Antiquiet reports.

A two camera mix of the eight song set has surfaced on YouTube (at least one of the angles has been available in bootleg circles for years). In addition to many classics from their self-titled album, the show features a live performance of Darkness (Of Greed) from The Crow Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Another highlight is Zack reading the lyrics of Settle For Nothing from a sheet of paper.

Rage Against The Machine may or may not be planning something this year.

    Morello has his Arm the Homeless guitar but before the writing was put on, that's kinda weirding me out.

    I hope all the guys from Rage will see this, and remember the amazing chemistry they have on stage.
