Time To Get Manly 62: Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine

Rage Against the Machine's debut album proved to be the perfect soundtrack for throngs of angry young men looking for somewhere to focus their overflowing testosterone and angst. After being indoctrinated by Rage's leftist views, these revolutionaries then took to the streets malls of America. There they bought Che Guevara T-shirts and brooded angrily over their Mrs. Field's cookies as they waited in vain for a mall cop to fuck with them. To call this record a "face melter," no matter how accurate, seems wholly inappropriate considering the whole "self immolation" thing. But it totally is.
