Formed in 1991, Rage Against the Machine opened the gates of a new boundary-obliterating rock-rap musical alliance with the band's literate and politically-charged debut album. Featuring band members Tim Commerford, Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello and Brad Wilk, Rage Against the Machine became a critical and commercial success, selling millions of copies around the world while attaining legendary status among alt-rock fans. To this day the album, and the band, remain standard-bearers for uncompromising incendiary rock.
Newly remastered for this anniversary release, Rage Against the Machine - XX will be available as a CD in three configurations: 1) 20th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Box Set housing two CDs, two DVDs, one 12" 180gm vinyl LP, one 40 page booklet and two-sided poster; 2) 20th Anniversary Special Edition featuring two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks in an oversized softpack and 3) 20th Anniversary Edition single compact disc (with three bonus tracks).
CD 1 includes the original album, remastered, with 3 bonus tracks of collectible b-sides from era.
CD 2 presents the original Rage Against the Machine demo tape. Recorded in 1991 and sold for $5 at the merch table at early Rage shows, the tape achieved mythical word-of-mouth status amongst music fans while helping to seal the band's deal with Epic Records. The 20th anniversary releases of Rage Against the Machine - XX marks the first time the entire RATM demo tapes have seen a full official release.
Bonus DVD includes the three music videos from the album (Killing In The Name, Bombtrack and Freedom) plus three previously unreleased live performances: Take The Power Back (Vic Theatre 1993), Bombtrack (Soundstage performance 1992) and Wake Up (Nomads 1992).

I bought the deluxe box with the LP and it arrived scratched. In total, I had to buy 3 of these, and ALL of the LPs arrived scratched. Don't get me wrong, they are playable and sound good, but the scratches are audible and look as though they are a result of the LPs being carelessly shoved into the paper sleeve. I find it a little galling to buy a premium LP release and it not to have a quality liner, but there we go. All three copies I had in my hands all had differing levels of spine damage, again it looked as though it was carelessness when assembling the package, (rather than in transit because the whole thing fits together very snugly).
This gripe out of the way though, the packaging is great and the contents are all top notch! The DVDs are superb as is the remix of the album.
I have to dock a star though because I purchased this as not only a fan, but as a bit of a collector and there is spine damage and scratches right out of the blocks.
