Rage rest in peace? Hardly. No justice - no peace. -Motherf**ker.
At the end, then, they've left us with a record of their beginnings. Instead of the long-promised live album, Rage Against The Machine's final salvo is a collection of cover versions. The live album will probably come too, with Rage's paymasters keen as mustard to cash in on their legacy. For all their sound and fury, Rage didn't actually manage to upend the profit...

Rage Against the Machine - Renegades: Wikipedia Album Entry
Renegades is the first cover album by American rap rock band Rage Against the Machine and the final release by the band. The album consists entirely of cover songs and includes covers of artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Minor Threat, Eric B. & Rakim, EPMD, MC5, the Rolling Stones, Cypress Hill, and Devo. It was released in 2000, after Rage singer Zack de la Rocha had already left the band, but featured his vocals. It is rumored that Zack did not want the album to be released, and the band secured separate management to ensure it would come out. After the release of Renegades, the remaining three members of the band reformed with Chris Cornell on vocals as Audioslave. Rage did, however, release one final album, Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium, a live recording of their final two concerts in Los Angeles on September 12 and September 13, 2000. The bonus live version of "Kick Out the Jams" on the European version of this album also appears on Live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium.
