Rage Against the Machine's tour has been nothing if not eventful. After being postponed three times due to the pandemic, the rap-metal revolutionaries were finally able to begin their trek around the U.S. for the first time in 11 years earlier this summer, and despite frontman Zack de la Rocha reportedly tearing his ACL on the tour's second date, the band have continued ripping gigs with the utmost ferocity.
Beyond the pesky leg injury that caused the band to cancel their European run of the tour, the journey has been full of setlist surprises, with the band frequently busting out tracks they haven't played in multiple metal eons — most recently "Fistful of Steel," a banger from their 1992 self-titled album that they hadn't performed live since 1997.
On Friday August 12th, Rage kicked into the track during the band's second-to-last-night of their five-night residency at Madison Square Garden, and needless to say, they picked it up with the same amount of energy they would've brought to it 25 years earlier. Check out footage above via YouTube.
