Renegades [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Most serious musicians, at some point in their careers, take the time to tip their hats to those who inspired them -- and maybe even kick a few bucks in royalties their way in the process. So it's not too surprising that Rage Against the Machine are marking the end of the first phase in their career with a covers collection, paying the same kind of homage to sonic influences as they've previously bestowed upon socio-political ones. There aren't too many out-and-out shockers in the grooves of Renegades, either -- no cock-rock skeletons or surreptitious displays of Lionel Ritchie worship. No, what the band delivers is a musically potent, unflaggingly raucous collection ...

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Most serious musicians, at some point in their careers, take the time to tip their hats to those who inspired them -- and maybe even kick a few bucks in royalties their way in the process. So it's not too surprising that Rage Against the Machine are marking the end of the first phase in their career with a covers collection, paying the same kind of homage to sonic influences as they've previously bestowed upon socio-political ones. There aren't too many out-and-out shockers in the grooves of Renegades, either -- no cock-rock skeletons or surreptitious displays of Lionel Ritchie worship. No, what the band delivers is a musically potent, unflaggingly raucous collection of tunes that can easily be traced to the sounds of Rage's own tunes. The group sounds loosest on songs culled from the ghosts of hip-hop past -- notably decidedly apolitical tracks such as Afrika Bambaataa's "Renegades of Funk" and EPMD's "I'm Housin' " -- but manages to land some heavy body blows on the rock end as well. Sensibly, Rage draw heavily from the Motor City's most legendary rabble-rousers -- the Stooges a gutsy take on "Down on the Street" and the MC5 in two separate versions of the classic "Kick Out the Jams". There are a few misses -- a muddled version of Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" and an "In My Eyes" that pales in comparison to the Minor Threat original -- but overall, Renegades provides both an illumination of Rage's family tree and a powerful jolt in its own right.
Rolling Stone - Tom Moon
The very act of overcoming such diverse works as Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad" and the Rolling Stones' "Street Fighting Man," Afrika Bambaataa's "Renegades of Funk and Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" requires a certain audacity, but Rage takes things further ­ executing each with the roaring, fearless spirit that¹s been missing in action since these songs were new.
