In 1991, shortly after they got Brad Wilk on drums, Los Angeles rap-metal band Rage Against The Machine released a self-titled demo tape that they would sell at there earliest of live concerts. It had 12 tracks, however only 7 tracks would appear on the bands eponymous 1992 debut album. The rest would either appear as B-Sides or not be rereleased at all. The origonally artwork had a picture of newspapers and had a match taped on to the cassette case. Record company Atlantic Records recieved a copy of the tape and produced a number of the tape with new artwork, a photo of a mans face. The band appears to not really care.

Song NotesEdit

The bands name "Rage Against The Machine" was originally a song that Zach De La Rocha's old punk rock band Inside Out made. "Darkness of Greed" eventually appeared on the soundtrack for The Crow. Most songs that did not appear on the bands 1992 debut would eventually become B-Sides. The guitar riff for "The Narrows" would eventually be recycled for the track "Fistfull Of Steel" on the band's debut.
