Arguably the most provocative band of the last 20 years, Rage Against the Machine have, since their explosive debut, been the group most associated with the American protest movement. Picking up the flame from a linear musical tradition going back to the War of Independence, and with the best-known protagonists coming up during the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 60s via artists such as Pete Seeger and the young Bob Dylan, the anger remained as brutal as ever during the final decade of the 20th century in Rage and contemporaries like Public Enemy.

This film dissects the work and career of RATM and looks at their place in this always fascinating lineage of artists and performers who have spoken out on behalf of, and drawn attention to, the world's marginalised, downtrodden and oppressed.
