RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
The band’s eponymous debut album.Probably the first album to successfully merge the seemingly disparate sounds of rap and heavy metal, Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled debut was groundbreaking enough when released in 1992, but many would argue that it has yet to be surpassed in terms of influence and sheer brilliance — though countless bands have certainly tried.
Presented by JON MORTER
Jon is best known for his gatecrashing of the music industry with his phenomenal ‘Rage Against The X Factor’ campaign, sweeping Rap/Metal band Rage Against The Machine into the sought after UK Christmas No.1 spot, and £160,000 raised for charity. A Guinness record for downloads was broken plus Facebook gave him his own personal member of staff to assist with the 1.6 million group members he had amassed in just 4 weeks. This success opened the door for Jon to work on campaigns for some big artists in the industry including Nirvana, Sex Pistols, Rod Stewart, David Essex, a No.1 album for The Rolling Stones, Rik Mayall’s 2010 World Cup single (which incidentally Jon campaigned for again after Rik’s death making the UK No.7 in 2014), Eagles of Death Metal, Wham’s return to No.2 in 2017, and the 2012 Christmas No.1 campaign for The Justice Collective.
