Very Early Rage Against the Machine Footage Unearthed

Very Early Rage Against the Machine Footage Unearthed -

Early footage of Rage Against the Machine  shot at a live in-store performance over 20 years ago has surfaced online.

The venue for this early performance was Long Beach record store Zed Records and the 40 minute clip features the rap-metal pioneers as teenagers performing what would subsequently become classic RATM tracks such as 'Bombtrack,' 'Bullet in the Head,' 'Killing in the Name Of' and 'Freedom.'

The videos owner, who posted the footage as Cow Prod Video, has claimed that he had been considering uploading the video for some time, but was eventually motivated by a friend to take the material from his two-camera, two-tape shoot and edit it together.

Watch Rage Against the Machine's Zed Records Performance from 1992.
