When Rage Against The Machine disbanded in 2000, they left behind a mere four studio albums and a massive fanbase that was thirsty for more material. Well, luckily for us, their last two concerts were recorded and edited into one disc for all of us fans to feast on. Recorded on September 12 & 13 of 2000 in Los Angeles, CA, 'Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium' is a snapshot of Rage in their best form: performing live. Although I never got to see them live (they barely toured to begin with), this disc serves as the next best thing. All of the intensity and integrity of Rage's music translates well onto this disc. The collection almost serves as a "Best Of..." compilation as well, as all the classic cuts are here, along with a few covers & rarities. It's hard to imagine any fans being displeased with the package. The standout performances to me would be the powerhouse opener "Bulls On Parade," "Calm Like A Bomb" (come on, we were itching for a live version of this), "Know Your Enemy," "No Shelter," "Guerrilla Radio," "Freedom," and "Born Of A Broken Man." The disc as a whole is superb; as odd as it is, I think this is their second best recording (their self-titled being their best), which is just a testament to how well they hold up live and how their music stands the test of time. One of those bands that you never really fully appreciate until they are gone.

This album is flawless. It's the best live album ever made. It includes all of RATM's most known work, though I would've liked some songs to be played that weren't, but it's all good. Here's a review of the songs:
1. Bulls On Parade - 5/5 - Nice and heavy. Awesome song.
2. Bullet In The Head - 5/5 - Not as heavy, a little slower. Good song.
3. Born Of A Broken Man - 5/5 - Just like #1
4. Killing In The Name - 5/5 - The croud participation sucked on the most famous line. Nonetheless it's still awesome.
5. Calm Like A Bomb - 5/5 - I like the bass intro, it sounds wacky. Great song.
6. Testify - 6/5 - My personal favorite on the album. The song sounds AMAZING live.
7. Bombtrack - 5/5 - Another great one.
8. War Within A Breath - 5/5 - This song sounds cool. The guitar intro is cool sounding. Distorted.
9. I'm Housin' - 6/5 - Second favorite on the album. Zack changed the chorus, but it still sounded great.
10. Sleep Now In The Fire - 5/5 - Good song.
11. People Of The Sun - 5/5 - Lol, I like how Zack goes "Yo yo yo". Great song.
12. Guerrila Radio - 5/5 - Great song.
13. Kick Out The Jams - 4/5 - IMO, they should've played Renegades of Funk or Wake Up in place of this one. Still sounds good though.
14. Know Your Enemy - 5/5 - The ending line is awesome. "All of which are American dreams."
15. No Shelter - 5/5 - Cool guitar tabs, sweet song.
16. Freedom - 6/5 - 3rd favorite song on the album. Flawless.
Overall 6/5 - This album is DEFINATLY worth buying, you won't regret wasting you're money, even if you're not a Rage fan.

This CD of Rage's final shows is awesome. Their performance is full of energy and the songs sound great. RATM really gets the crowd into their songs too. The CD flows perfectly (it's like you are at the show!) Best Songs:
Bulls on Parade- Awesome live version of a great song. Guitar part sounds great, and Zach's vocals are energized.
Bullet in the Head- Great. Highly energized and the crowd get into it.
Killing in the Name- In my opinion, better than the original song. The crowd sings some of the lyrics and Zach even changes some of the lyrics mid-song. Great. Tom Morrelo's guitar sounds awesome.
Testify: High intensity, with Zach busting out the lyrics and Tom, Tim, and Brad pounding away on their instruments. A great song.
People of the Sun- Zach sounds energized and the band sounds awesome. Excellent.
Guerilla Radio- My personal favorite song. Awesome. The band perfectly nailed the song and performs it with zeal. The guitar distortion parts sound amazing.
Freedom- Awesome lyrics, and a electric end to the CD. Great.
Overall, if you are a fan of Rage, you need to buy this CD. It's energized, the songs sound exactly right, and the crowd is great. A live CD that shows Rage at the top of their form.

In a time where the average teenager is bombarded with inane and worhtless products such as MTV's The Newlyweds, and horrible excuses for movies like "Love Don't Co$t a Thing," Rage Against the Machine proved that the average young adult understands and even cares about deep political and social issues. Every song is rooted with something that the entire band, most of all Zach De La Rocha, feels very passionately about. It's almost impossible to find this kind of passion and intenisty in music. RATM goes beyond the normal musical spectrum to fuel the activist and protestor inside all of us. There's no way you can listen to Bombtrack, Killing in the Name, Bull's on Parade, or No Shelter without being inspired to take action. The standout songs are Bull's On Parade, Bombtrack, Killing in the Name, Guerilla Radio, and People of the Sun. To fully appreciate the aspect of Rage Against The Machien you would've had to experience them live. That is why of all their albums I like this one the best. Even if you're not a Rage fan, you have to recognize the sheer intensity and raw power of their concerts. No band since MC5 has embodied the spirit of the socially conscious youth like Rage Against the Machine.
The lyrics, although being a live album can be hard to understand at times, are where the real power lies. "Coca-Cola was back in the veins of Saigon, Rambo troops with a dope pair of Nike's on." But even if you're not a fan of lyrics, and enjoy the roaring of electric guitar, then this too is also the album for you. Tom Morello is the modern god of the guitar and a legend all in his own.
I give this CD 5 stars and I really think you should go out to get it. I also would reccomend the DVD that goes along with this, but if you buy any Rage Against the Machine DVD's make sure they're official ones from the band, not boot-legged knock offs.
