The first and only book to tell the full Rage Against The Machine and Audioslave story.
Rage Against The Machine changed the shape of music with their rampant self-titled debut album in 1992. Here was a politically charged troupe who took advantage of major label backing yet spoke out on issues that few stars in the spotlight dared to – never afraid to insist their message was just as important as the music.
The sales and critical acclaim besieged them, until De La Rocha left in 2000. Morello and Co. threw a curveball and formed new band Audioslave. Yet there was always the genius of RATM in the background and in 2007 they reformed, subsequesntly headlining festivals around the globe. This book details the band’s full story, their intense politics and chronicles the history of protest music.
