From I think I'm halfway in-between the earlier comments. Their covers of Renegades of Funk and How I Could Just Kill a Man aren't better than the originals, but take them in an entirely new direction, with such rhythmic power and aggressive tone. I don't know all the originals but Maggie's Farm for example is the best cover ever of a song covered by so many others. Formed in 1991, the group consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk. During their initial nine-year run, they became one of the most popular and influential bands in music history, according to music journalist Colin Devenish.

While this album isn't an all-time favourite and some of the covers struggle, it's also not a poorly executed flop. A follow-up record was released in 1996, with Evil Empire. Rush released after the late-2000 split between Zack de la Rocha and the rest of Rage Against the Machine, the covers album Renegades salutes the band's musical and philosophical roots, ranging from the old-school Bronx to the hard-rockin' Motor City to protest-central Greenwich Village to gangsta-ridden L. This album is worth it for those two tracks alone. Your feedback for Renegades Let us know what you think of this album by adding a comment or assigning a rating below!

From Do not understand the dismissal and neglect of this rock and roll powerhouse of pure rock and funk by a band of brilliant musicians. From The problem with having a good sense of musical taste is that if you decide to do an all-covers album, there's no way that you can match the quality of the originals. Up until 2011, the band continued to perform at more live venues and festivals around the world. As could be expected, the set works best when the group focuses on material from its most recent forebears: rappers and hardcore bands. It's still Rage, so it was better than 90% of the crap that was out there in 2000, but if it's 2011 and you're reading this you may as well skip over and go straight into Street Sweeper Social Club, because that's what this album eventually led to.
