The Battle of Los Angeles, Rage Against the Machine's fiery and groovy third full-length effort, closed out the '90s in typical uncompromising fashion and is arguably the most focused and explosive collection of the band's trailblazing career. Tom Morello and company match Zach de la Rocha's political venom here with equal musical aplomb and never take their foot off the gas from opener "Testify" through to closer "War Within a Breath." Battle of Los Angeles was nominated for the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album and the single "Guerrilla Radio" won for Best Hard Rock Performance.
