Rage Against the Machine unfortunately had to postpone their reunion tour to 2021, but that hasn't kept the band out of the headlines. From vocalist Zack de la Rocha guesting on a new Run the Jewels song, to some dude on Twitter accusing guitarist Tom Morello of being too political in recent years, the band is still making the news cycle. Not to mention all their music is an excellent soundtrack to national protests of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other black Americans at the hands of local law enforcement.
All of this has led to a new surge in popularity for the band. According to Forbes, Rage Against the Machine's self-titled 1992 album landed at No. 174 on this week’s Billboard 200, and hit No. 8 on iTunes. The record features such tracks as "Killing in the Name," "Bombtrack," "Wake Up," and "Knowing Your Enemy."
