Footage of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's First Show

"This footage, which claims to be the first Rage Against the Machine concert ever, is pretty fascinating to watch. Beyond hearing these songs in their infancy, look at the early 90s fashion on display here. The three people up front, Zack De La Rocha with his funky dance moves and black shirt over white sweatshirt apparel. It just brings me back! Somebody Rock Sound tracked down Tom Morello, who had seen the footage and had this to say about it:

"I have seen a bit of clip and I have a full recollection of that show. It was actually the first time we played in front of a public audience, we had done one show previously but that was a living room party so that filmed footage still qualifies as our first 'proper' show.

I remember when we started playing there was no one in the audience, it was just people walking back and forward on the way to lunch at Cal State Northridge. After an hour long performance we won over a couple of headbangers, which was a victory for us at that point in our careers!"

Here is the band's set from the show:

01 – “Killing In The Name” (instrumental)
02 – “Take The Power Back”
03 – “Autologic”
04 – “Bullet In The Head”
05 – “Hit The Deck”
06 – “Township Rebellion”
07 – “Darkness Of Greed”
08 – “Clear The Lane”
09 – “Clampdown”
10 – “Know Your Enemy”
11 – “Freedom”

I'll always remember RATM as the band that was playing on the stereo when I lost my virginity. Couldn't have asked for better, really.

Jackin' off don't count.
careful or he wont talk to you either.

either way I fuckinlove this band and Tom . . .. . .. on the gutair blows my feeble little mind with the sounds he makes.

Its a good set to listen to as well, but hearing killing in the name without words is a bit strange

I can live with it Bro. Bulls on parade and Bullet in the head are still two of my all time favorites. And no way Blaine is a Rage fan, Weezer OK, Depeche Mode certainly. But Rage come on.

I dunno something that is "Fuck the cooperate world while we make mass marketed, and major label albums" seems right up his alley. :nig:
 
Saw that OP's link was disabled, so I found another one. Enjoy this one before jewtube shuts it down. BTW, RATM's first public performance was at a house party(according to Wiki). But this one's very early in their career, and could be considered their 'first real public performance'.
