Rage Against The Machine have resurfaced “Fistful Of Steel” for the first time in 25 years.
The highly anticipated Rage Against The Machine tour has been pretty eventful thus far. From Zack De La Rocha reportedly tearing his ACL, which means he’s had to perform sitting down, to a security guard accidentally tackling Tom Morello. Now, Rage Against The Machine has broken out yet another track they haven’t performed in a while, “Fistful Of Steel.”
Taking to Madison Square Garden, they broke out the fan-favourite, which comes from their 1992 self-titled debut. “Fistful Of Steel” was last performed in July of 1997 at a Norwegian festival, and despite having to play while seated, frontman Zack De La Rocha really brought some unbelievable energy.

Rage Against The Machine have been performing a whole slew of hits that they haven’t played in ages. In addition to “Fistful Of Steel,” they recently played “Born Of A Broken Man” for the first time in 14 years. Taking to Cleveland, Ohio at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse arena, they played the 1999 The Battle Of Los Angeles track. According to Setlist.FM, it was the first time Rage played the track since 2008.
They also recently brought out Run The Jewels to perform “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” at their Toronto show. “Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)” appeared on Run The Jewels’ sophomore album in 2014, and it features RATM frontman Zack de la Rocha. That same show was where a security guard accidentally tackled Tom Morello after a concertgoer rushed the stage during “Killing in the Name.”
