"Tire Me" is the 6th song from the album Evil Empire by Rage Against the Machine. Although "Tire Me" never had a music video, it was never released on any media formats, and had no radio airplay, but the song won a Grammy Award in 1997 for the Best Metal Performance.[1]

"Tire Me" made its live debut at Cal State in Carson, California on April 29, 1994, with slightly alternate lyrics than the final album version. At the Pinkpop Festival in 1994 before playing the song, Zack De La Rocha said it was written to celebrate the death of Richard Nixon.
