- As a young college student in Fullerton, I had a chance to see many up-n-coming bands play on campus. As you may recall, the music scene in the early 90's was incredible. Anyway, one afternoon outdoor show has always stuck out in my mind, and it was a performance by Rage Against the Machine. I've come to realize that they were only a few month old, so they were still working out their kinks. Still, they were full of piss and vinegar, and displayed the showmanship that would endear them to fans worldwide. Well, I recently found out that someone with a camcorder was there in 1992, and they put up a couple of videos on youtube for me to relive my youth. Check it out below.
