A Rage Against the Machine box set called Rage Against the Machine – XX will be released on November 27th through Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Records. This release will be a 20th anniversary box set that includes two CDs and two DVDs. The first disc includes Rage’s debut self-titled album remastered, as well as a couple of b-sides from that era. The second disc is the demo versions of Rage’s early material, recorded back in 1991. This demo used to be sold for $5 at early Rage shows and helped get them signed. The DVDs include plenty of concert footage spanning the band’s whole career, including its reunion. Source

Bio: Nicole Malczan is a freelance writer who gets paid to toil around with words and delve into many exciting topics. Of all of them, her favorite is rock music. Born in the late 80s (and on the same day as Eddie Vedder), she sadly missed the formative years of many of her favorite bands. This may explain her deep love of all things 90s. Fun facts: When she’s not writing, Nicole enjoys watching pro wrestling, shopping for cheap albums at her local record store, working on her novel, and spending far too much money on concerts.

    I had it pre-ordered with Amazon when they listed it for £15…they cancelled my order then just changed the price :(

    Wouldn’t be nice to get a surprise outtake or anything other then the b-sides ‘Clear the Lane’ and ‘Darkness of Greed’? ‘Clear the Lane’ must be on a half dozen singles.

    where can i hear this song darkness of greed? i’m a huge fan of zach’s band before rage and they had a song called darkness of greed. be interesting to see if it’s the same lyrics!

    Ugh, the self-titled remastered? Are you shitting me? That’s one of the last albums that should ever be “remastered”.

  • whisky

    Classic albums should rarely, if ever, be remastered. Pearl Jam totally sucked the life out of Ten with their remaster. “Oh, it has too much reverb, it sounds like a pop record, blah-blah-blah…” Give me a fucking break. I don’t understand how these giants of rock can become so embarrased by their legacies. Stupid.

    But RATM is widely regarded as one of the best sounding albums of all time. No way it will be anything but worse.

    I had the original box on my wish list for some time, …. time to run and swap my wish for the new one.

  • whisky

    Well, either they think they can make it sound better – which they won’t – or they want to cash in. So they’re either stupid or greedy. Either way, fuck that shit.

    How many millions of dollars can you make bitching about capitalism because people get the hint…

    @Mike: Yeah, but I would buy your CD, with you complaining about some bands, that must be some really interesting stuff …
