No. 7: Rage Against the Machine, ‘Rage Against the Machine’ – Best Debut Hard Rock Albums

Rage Against the Machine, 'Rage Against the Machine'

While grunge may have been the big new thing in 1992, four young rockers were putting their political beliefs, attitude and some killer licks together to form a sound that wasn’t being serviced in the rock industry.

That band was Rage Against the Machine, and from the first time audiences heard Zack de la Rocha‘s opening growl and Tom Morello‘s guitar licks on ‘Freedom,’ things would never be the same. The band powered their way through passionate cuts like ‘Killing in the Name,’ ‘Bullet in the Head,’ ‘Bombtrack,’ ‘Know Your Enemy’ and ‘Wake Up,’ making their self-titled debut an instant classic.
