Rage Against the Machine: Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium features a blazing 15-song set, which includes the songs "Sleep Now in the Fire," "Guerrilla Radio," "Bulls on Parade," "Killing in the Name," "Calm Like a Bomb," and "How I Could Just Kill a Man," the latter featuring a guest appearance from rap group Cypress Hill.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
A terrific conflagration of rock, rap, and political outcry, Rage Against the Machine rank as one of the most incendiary bands of the 1990s. With the intent of producing a live album that would be a between-CDs fan-pleaser, Rage recorded two hair-raising performances on September 12 and 13, 2000. Alas, the shows turned out to be the band's last. Released in conjunction with a CD companion and produced by Rick Rubin, Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium captures the entirety of the show from the second night, a swan song seething with political intensity. Zach de la Rocha and company deliver passionate renditions of such Rage staples as "Bulls on Parade" and "Killing in the Name." They also give props to Motor City rockers the MC5 on a cover of the revolutionary anthem "Kick Out the Jams" and share the stage with rappers Cypress Hill on "How I Could Just Kill a Man." Although equipped with one of the longest fuses imaginable, Rage Against the Machine were bound to explode at some point; fortunately, they left this indelible impression of their force behind.

    Live is good

    Rage against the machine's last performance as a band, the last concert may be their best. Zack de la rocha, Tom morello, Tim commerford and Brad wilk all really kick out the jams.
