Armchair headbangers rejoice: This concert tape of American and European dates (with all of Rage Against the Machine’s videos appended) lets you experience RATM’s galvanic rap-metal fusion without suffering the indignities of a mosh pit. Kicking off with a revamp of Bruce Springsteen’s ”The Ghost of Tom Joad,” the band storms through several of its most popular songs (”Bulls on Parade,” ”People of the Sun”). The only downside is frontman Zack de la Rocha’s political commentary; he’s far more convincing shouting ”F— you. I won’t do what you tell me” than reciting poetry about Zapatista rebels. B
