Before he was the frontman for Rage Against The Machine, Zack de la Rocha had played in hardcore bands such as Inside Out and Hard Stance. Footage from a March 4th, 1990 gig with the latter has been unearthed.

In the 30-year-old video, de la Rocha can be seen playing guitar with Hard Stance. The gig was reportedly the band’s final show before the singer went on to join Inside Out. Watch the clip below.

Rage Against The Machine would form in 1991, and go on to release their landmark debut album in November of 1992.
