Revolver Magazine is streaming the new Rage Against The Machine box set XX all day before its release tomorrow, check it out here. It's hard to believe that twenty years ago marked the release of the seminal Rage Against The Machine's debut album, with the album's two opening tracks opening the minds of everyone who listened ... the modern protest movement combined with a punk and metal hybrid that rocked like nothing that came before it. Rage Against The Machine created music that stood on its own merits just based on how much it rocked, but combined with a socially aware vibe just made it more tantalizing. Get mad! Get even! Get aware! Get your protest on!
The aggressive socially-conscious-hybrid cocktail of the opening two tracks "Bombtrack" and "Killing In The Name Of" became the protest movement's soundtrack for more than a generation. It's all been repackaged with a host of other items for XX, which is the Rage Against The Machine box set.
It includes a host of items for your next protest movement ... footage from a Finsbury Park Victory show from two years ago, remastered music and a variety of different packages to choose from. The biggest of big is the 1) box set: 2 CDs, 2 DVDs, vinyl and extras like a book. The next option 2) is 2 CDs and a DVD, also 3) the solo CD with bonus tracks and 4) vinyl options. A good soundtrack for your next #Occupy party or just for the get-up-and-go Rage fan.
