Back In Time

Back In Time: Rage Against The Machine first concert in 1991

Formed in the early 1990’s, the band eventually became a symbol for rock with its unique style and rebellious attitude, releasing true hymns that play there until today.


After an intense career, the band stopped its activities at the turn of the last decade.

But to never forget the group’s trajectory, check out a rare video of the band’s first public performance at Cal State Northridge University in October 1991.

Rage Against The Machine

At that time, RATM had not released their first studio album and was still struggling to gain public recognition. It is very interesting to note that the band’s audience is tiny and still not very enthusiastic – something very rare, given that a few months later the band already had a lot of hardcore fans.

See the setlist and concert below:
  1. Killing In The Name (Instrumental)
  2. Take The Power Back
  3. Autologic
  4. Bullet In The Head
  5. Hit The Deck
  6. Township Rebellion
  7. Darkness Of Greed
  8. Clear The Lane

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
