Any fans? A friend told me about them and I went out and picked up "The Battle of Los Angeles" the next day. Loved it. I started reading about them and then bought "Evil Empire" and their self titled album too. Their ST is probably one of my favorite CDs ever.

Tom is such a great guitar player and Zack's voice is equally good. Such an amazing band. It's just a shame that I got into them about a year after they split up. I'm not a fan of Audioslave, just because it is basically a watered down version of RATM and that is just no fun.

Anyways, what do you think of them?

They are an amazing band and i'm sad they broke up. The battle of Los Angeles is a fine album, but i prefer their debut over it. Fav song is there cover of Ghost of Tom Joad off the Renegades album.

Evil Empire is quite simply one of the worst albums I've ever listened to. That said, their self-titled album is an absolute classic and one of the best. The Battle of Los Angeles is also good and probably the best they could do - there was no way they could match the brilliance of their self-titled album. Renegades was different, I liked it for that. Its the sort of thing I wouldn't listen to if anyone else had done it. As BarnDoor said, The Ghost of Tom Joad is clearly the best song on there (and obviously one of their best). Maggie's Farm is good too.

I've also got some rare songs they did, such as No Shelter and the brilliant You Can't Kill The Revolution with Tool.

I'm not sure about favourite...probably The Ghost of Tom Joad more often than not.

The selftitled album is brilliant, and Los Angeles was quite decent. I am also quite fond of Audioslave, their album is quality although it doesnt quite match Rage Against The Machine.

Favourites are Bomb Track,Killing in The Name,Township Rebellion and Bullet In The Head.

Been a fan for a while. Got their first album when it came out then stopped listening to them for a while. Started listening to them again when i was 18 or 19 and bought the rest of their albums.
Quality band. Tom Morello is one of my favourite guitarists. He's got a very original sound and Zack's vocals are class.

Great band, I've listened to them far too little. Tom is a great guitar player, he is a rare player with his originality.

I don't really like Audioslave, they're just like Rage and Soundgarden put together, but really they are pretty lame.

take the power back is my favourite. Has one of the best bass riffs i've heard
 
I've only heard that one that goes like 'Fuck you I won't do what you tell me' and I like it, but those who want to can feel free to send me some more songs on msn... :tongue:

Has anyone heard any more news on Zack's solo album? I've been hearing about it for ages, but I haven't seen anything.

Good to see a few fans on the site. :)

I don't think it was shite. It had some good songs on it, but it obviously wasn't the best of the 4 they've released.

Anyone have any of the DVDS?
 

Original?

Rage Against the Machine are good, but how people prefer them to Audioslave is beyond me. Audioslave are like Rage, except they have a decent vocalist, Zack couldn't be more of a fucking communist if he tried and neither can he sing.

Zack couldn't sing, but I didn't mind what he did. I don't like Audioslave. Same riffs that others have used hundreds of times. I don't know, maybe I expected something as good as RATM.

I can't believe that no-one has said Wake Up is a good song! Thats probably one of there best and well known songs. The Self-titled album was near perfection and subsequently couldn't top it. An interesting fact for you...Tom Morello was actually educated at Harvard and is the Grandson or Nephew to the Prime Minister of an African country. Can't remeber which one.

Back and to the left.
In my humble opinion The Battle of LA was the best album followed by the first one. Guerrilla Radio is THE classic track. Wasn't Zak off in some South American country joining the revolution? Offering his services as a mercenary.
