The Top Ten

If only I had discovered them much earlier - yungstirjoey666

Great mix of Hard Rock,Hip Hop and Funk with lyrics for political activism.What more could you want?
Also makes great exercise music. - DarkBoi-X

2 Tom Morello Tom Morello Thomas Morello is an American musician, singer-songwriter and political activist. He is best known for his tenure with the band Rage Against the Machine and then with Audioslave.

One of the best guitarists ever.He can play both Punk and Metal riffs.But what I think is the best about him is how he can imitate DJ scratching,alarms and other noises with his guitar.It's rare to see guitarists do this and most of the ones that do this,only do it as a gimmick but for Tom,it's really part of his style. - DarkBoi-X

3 Their socially conscious lyrical themes

Their socially and politically conscious lyrics really make you think about what's happening in America and the rest of the world - DarkBoi-X

4 Zach de la Rocha

One of the best rappers ever.He's got lot's of anger and passion in his voice and he has conscious lyrics too. - DarkBoi-X

Say what you want about their political views but you can't deny their influence they've had on many activists and protesters. - DarkBoi-X

7 Their politically incorrect lyrics

They also make you think but they aren't afraid to state it.Oh boy did they piss off so many Republican and Democrat politicians and I solute them for that.Both parties are cancerous. - DarkBoi-X

The Contenders

11 Their Celebrity Deathmatch episode

Celebrity Deathmatch is a Claymation show which puts celebrities against each other in hilarious fights.
Rage Against the Machine was on the show, and they were put up against The Machine. The Machine won by slicing them in half and stuffing the remains in jars. It was hardcore and awesome.
Before you flip out, it's a cartoon. The real people were unharmed.
