In the 1990s, Rage Against the Machine took mainstream music by storm, with a heavy punk/metal/funk sound backed by vocalist Zack de la Rocha’s fiery political rhymes. The group has sold more than 16 million records worldwide and has garnered numerous music industry nominations and awards during their career.
“Rage Against the Machine Pack 01,” coming to the Rock Band Music Store on May 8, features three of the group’s most popular tracks. “Bombtrack” and “Killing in the Name,” from the band’s 1992 triple platinum self-titled debut record, kick things off.
