Out of time

Rage Against The Machine began as provocative left-wing firebrands, only to find their political  message blunted or outright ignored as they were seized upon by white middle-class teenagers (yep, guilty as charged) and even co-opted by right-wing reactionaries like Paul Ryan. As Frank Guan argues, however, they were in many ways ahead of their time - and are as relevant now, as a perfect commentary on the dawning of the Trump era, as ever.
