The Battle of Mexico City is a live recording of a Rage Against the Machine concert at Mexico City’s MX Palacio de los Deportes in 1999. The full concert is now available to stream on Qello, the number one concert and music documentary streaming service.
The concert marked the first time Rage Against the Machine played in Mexico City, and it was part of their Battle of Los Angeles world tour. The band released a VHS of the concert in 2001 and, a year later, released a DVD of the show including an interview with linguist/philosopher/activist Noam Chomsky. Now it’s available to you right now, when you sign up for Qello! The streaming service regularly adds new concerts and documentaries for fans of all genres.
Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk make up Rage Against the Machine. The group performed hits like “Bulls On Parade,” “Guerrilla Radio,” and “Killing In The Name,” as well as lesser known tracks such as “Zapata’s Blood.” Spliced between concert footage are documentary clips, with an intro, outro and five parts spread throughout the program.
