Rap-metal kingpins Limp Bizkit's R-rated partycore hit its album-chart-topping pinnacle around the turn of the millennium. The Florida band had a solid underground following long before they were signed to Interscope in 1997. They have a singular approach to psychedelic guitars overdriven past the point of corrosive distortion into the realm of aural punishment, flanked by harsh funk basslines and hip-hop beats. Aggressive rap vocals occasionally venture into whiteboy soul-isms.

Runtime: 1 hr 35 minOutside Mexico City's Sports Pavilion, hundreds of young Rage fans rattle metal fences and throw rocks at the increasingly nervous police. Inside, a seething crowd of 5,000 lucky ticket holders cram into the cavernous pavilion chanting anti-government slogans and poking their middle fingers into the thick, sweaty air while waiting for Rage Against the Machine to storm the stage.
One of the greatest live acts in music history, Rage only affirms that fact with this show. Whatever club, theater, arena, or stadium they're in, the opening of each Rage Against the Machine show always feels like a grenade has gone off. But this night it was as if a truckful of bombs blew up as the band tore into the opening salvo of "Testify." Fans cascaded toward the stage like rippling waves stopping only to pogo up-and-down like jackhammers.

From the early "all hell can't stop us now" chant in "Guerilla Radio" to the blood-curling screams in the finale of "Freedom," there is an urgency at this show that is unrivaled. This is live rock & roll as it's meant to be heard: fierce, funky, uncompromising. This is Rage Against the Machine in their finest hour.
