Over a decade of absence, Rage Against The Machine (RATM) made their way back by firing a gig in East Troy, Wisconsin on July 9 (Saturday). Zack de la Rocha and Tom Morello tore up 16 sets of their classics such as “Guerrilla Radio”, “Bulls on Parade” and “Killing in the Name”. RATM dust off some Bruce Springsteen’s ballet to be covered. 

Not only firing back in an energizing room, RATM also addressed the crowd with the sentiment of Roe v. Wade as they took a stance to support abortion rights in the US. It was displayed “Forced birth in a country that is the only wealthy country in the world without any guaranteed paid parental leave at the national level…”. Also reported, the band recently pledged some decent sum ($475.000) to a reproductive rights organization in Wisconsin and Illinois. 

Rage Against The Machine stormed out this very first performance after eleven years, last count was on July 30, 2011 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
