American rock group Rage Against the Machine is based in Los Angeles, California. The band’s name is frequently shortened to Rage or RATM.
The band, which included drummer Brad Wilk, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, and vocalist Zack de la Rocha, was founded in 1991. The band is renowned for its revolutionary socialist political ideals and for fusing punk rock, funk, heavy metal, and rap music. They had sold more than 16 million records globally as of 2010.
In November 1992, Rage Against the Machine was released. Malcolm Browne’s Pulitzer Prize-winning image of Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thích Quảng Đức, who committed suicide by burning himself in 1963, graced the cover of the album.
Is Rage against the Machine still together?
They split up, however they have since reconciled and performed on the last day of Coachella in 2007. The group reunited to tour intermittently until 2011 after the performance demonstrated that it was more than just a run-off. In spring 2020, Rage Against the Machine was scheduled to reconvene, but the COVID-19 epidemic caused a delay.
