Rage Against the Machine (also known as Rage Against the Machine: The Video) is the official self-titled debut video release by Rage Against the Machine. The video was released in 1997 and includes footage from various performances as well as video clips.

Background[edit]

Towards the end of their Summer 1997 Evil Empire tour, the Band decided to put together a video, as they had a huge backlog of video showing the Band live. They taped the last two shows of the tour, then added live material from 1994, 1996, and all the music videos up through "People of the Sun."[1]

Reception[edit]

AllMusic writer JT Griffith wrote "Overall, the quality of the video is fine, but the music mix is low and a bit muddy."[2] Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly gave the video a B writing "Armchair headbangers rejoice: This concert tape of American and European dates (with all of Rage Against the Machine's videos appended) lets you experience RATM's galvanic rap-metal fusion without suffering the indignities of a mosh pit."[3]
