In 2016, they announced a new album to protest the presidential election of Creator/DonaldTrump. Earlier during the election season, the band (again except for Zack) joined forces with Music/PublicEnemy's Chuck D and B-Real from Music/CypressHill and performed together under the name Prophets of Rage. Unlike the case of Audioslave, however, Prophets of Rage did play RATM songs, as well as some Cypress Hill and Public Enemy songs, and also some original songs.



* TheBandMinusTheFace: Music/{{Audioslave}}. Kind of.

* TheBandMinusTheFace: Music/{{Audioslave}}. Kind of. Prophets of Rage also counts, with Chuck D and B-Real handling vocals in Zack's stead.



* BigYes: Zack lets out an awesome, raspy ''"YEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!"'' twice in "Sleep Now in the Fire"; once around the start, and again before the guitar solo.

* BigYes: Zack lets out an awesome, raspy ''"YEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!"'' twice in "Sleep Now in the Fire"; once around the start, and again before the guitar solo. The outro of "Freedom" also has this alternating with Zack screaming the title, though the second time, he yells, "YEEAAHH, RIIIIGHT!"



* CoolOldLady: Tom Morello's mother. She's basically the anti-Tipper Gore, starting an organization called "Parents for Rock and Rap". One of the band's live [=DVDs=] even features her introducing her son's band as "the best band in the fucking universe"!

* IsntItIronic: "No Shelter" was used on the Godzilla soundtrack because Sony noticed that they mention the great lizard by name. What Sony failed to notice is that they call it "pure motherfucking filler" (''immediately'' after mentioning Godzilla, no less!) and that the whole song was about slick American advertising disguising real suffering. Furthermore, "No Shelter" has the line "Make you think what you need is what they sellin' / Make you think that buyin' is rebellin'"

-->-- "Killing in the Name", from their self-titled debut[[note]]The last line is an ad-lib Zack occasionally sings live instead of repeating the second line, as he does in the recorded version.[[/note]]

'''Rage Against the Machine''' was a RapMetal[=/=]FunkMetal band from Los Angeles, formed in 1991.

The band was on hiatus from 2000 to 2007, during which time the band members sans singer Zack De La Rocha formed the band Music/{{Audioslave}} with Music/{{Soundgarden}} vocalist Chris Cornell. Audioslave disbanded in 2007, and RATM reunited for a show in Coachella festival, and have since toured to some extent.

* CoverVersion: An entire album of them. ''Renegades'' is a collection of covers. They have also covered [[Music/{{NWA}} "Fuck tha Police"]], [[Music/PublicEnemy "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos"]] and [[Music/BruceSpringsteen "The Ghost of Tom Joad"]] (the latter of which is in ''Renegades'', and for which, incidentally, Morello guested when Springsteen re-recorded it in ''High Hopes''). At live shows they sometimes play White Riot by Music/TheClash.

** Also, in the 2009 U.K Xmas No.1 race, when Rage's "Killing In The Name" went up against ''The X Factor'''s Joe's, "The Climb", there was quite a bit of {{Irony}} as there was a successful Internet campaign instructing anti-''X Factor'' fans to buy the song. In addition to the above anti-consumerism lyric from "No Shelter", "Killing In The Name" clearly has the lyrics, "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!"

The band was well known for political activism, and the liner notes usually include contact information to various organizations the band supports. They have also played at large protests, and once, when playing on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' (in an episode hosted by buttoned-down Republican presidential candidate Steve Forbes), displayed the American flag upside down, until stagehands came and pulled them down.
