Rage Against the Machine(abbreviated RATM) was an American rap metal band formed in 1991. Their songs mostly consist of political songs and songs about society and globalization. One of the most noticeable things musically about the band is the unique guitar playing of Tom Morello who can sometimes sound like he’s playing something other than a guitar.


Formed in 1991 the bands first self titled album was critically acclaimed. The band continued to release albums until 2000 when the lead singer Zack de la Rocha quit the band. In 2007 RATM re-united and currently has no plans to make a new album.
