Watch an Early 1992 Rage Against the Machine College Show

Subscribe to on

Someone who saw a very young Rage Against the Machine perform at a house show at Pitzer College in Claremont, Calif. had the foresight to film the set in its entirety, intuitively knowing people would want to watch it 20 years later. So, more than two decades later, watch the full, 36-minute set in the video above.

As the band has been on an indefinite hiatus since 2011, it’s nice to take a trip down memory lane and see where it all started. The 1992 show captures the band performing ‘Bullet In the Head’ and ‘Killing In the Name,’ two songs that would later appear on their self-titled debut album that same year.

Of course, the videographer behind this newly surfaced clip wasn’t alone — everyone else in attendance at the 1992 gig were equally enjoying themselves. As a youthful Zack de la Rocha commands attention with his innate stage presence, the crowd pushes and crowd surfs throughout the entire performance.
