I used to have every RATM album (that you could get at the local CD exchange XD). I`ve lost a couple, but they are still a good band.

I was right there in the middle of the pit. I`m pretty confident that I almost died. Amazing experience.

"Live sound - Fair at best
Stage performance - Poor
Crowd - Noticeably dormant

Down here in new orleans, the average local show in the quarter would blow that away. And if thats what one qualifies as impressive... well, nuff said."

uh dude. the crowd was far from dormant...this particular show was almost stopped a few times because the crowd was becoming violent. if you can`t be arsed to watch the vid just go to this link:article

"ARGG! All you haters out there are bored with RATM because being aware of whats going on in this world scares you! So you purposefully and immediately turn your back and look away"

Wow, what a terrible reason to enjoy a band, and really, that`s only if you agree with this band`s world view. If William Hung started singing about finding a cure for cancer, hey, I`m all for curing cancer, but it doesn`t make him a talented singer.

As for their world view:

What was so great about this?
I though something interesting was going to happen.
Their performance was so boring.

WTF!? It`s not like you could make out what he was saying to hear what ever message he had. Just becasue they may have been singing about something important doesn`t automatically mean it a great song or band.

What was so impressive about that?

If you want to see a real band, check out UnderØath.
Their new Survive Kaleidescope DVD is incredible.

I might have been a bit more impressed by RAM if the quality was better, but im not a fan of their music anyways.

I think that the Daft Punk one was better...

I like RATM because they actually have meaning in their song`s, unlike many bands now. I also like Soundgarden (Pretty Noose is my favorite song) and Audioslave, even though they`re a bit slower, but still good.

anyone who doesn`t like rage either doesn`t appreciate the genre of music or it was before their time. these 15-17 year old kids coming along saying rage sucks is ludicrous -- but i guess ignorance is bliss :P

You can`t compare RATM to Audioslave..Yea, It`s the same band different singer..Yet different type of rock..As far as Soundgarden goes... Ill give you that one.

Oh and while audioslave had a couple good songs.. they were pretty water downed compared to rage or soundgarden.

^^ you`re watching video dude. Believe me, when you see Rage play live its extremely intense. They`re probably one of the better bands playing besides Tool.

I`m not gonna take the time to read these comments so i`m sorry if its been said. Zack de la Rocha looks better with dreads. Tom Morello kicks ass, and even though RATM was and now is a great band.. Audioslave was better.

I hope they had moshpits.

If you`re there then you don`t hear that music anyway. You become half deaf after the first notes that they play, and the only thing that becomes enjoyable when that occurs is the bass, headbanging and the pits.

"There isn`t a link on this site that isn`t aimed at people with a certain taste in one thing or another."

there isnt a link on any site, how is it possible to make a site with links on that some will like more than others, and vice versa, it isnt.

Oh man I miss these guys. Must`ve been a rad show. Too bad the camera`s sound quality is so awful, but eh, what do you expect. It`s so tinny that I didn`t bother watching the whole vid. Promises a headache.

jd_rOcCa...its a drop in the ocean...one link about a genre of music you`re not interest in, and you kick up a fuss.

Just leave it...the link title is enough to know wheteher you should watch it or not. But being that close minded isn`t healthy...there`s nothing wrong with listening to a mixture every now and then, you know?

I never go to Break.com because I always liked IAB. And most people on this site dislike kicked-in-the-nuts videos so I don`t really see your point.
[And on a completely unrelated note: I deleted my comment to edit it before I saw your post.]
