Track Exclusive – Rage Against The Machine, ‘Clear The Lane (Demo)’


Twenty years ago this month Rage Against The Machine released their now immortal self-titled debut, fusing rap and rock and switching a generation of music fans onto radical politics. Before they made that record in 1992 they produced their own demos, some of which have never been released before. We’ve got one of those original demos for you to hear now, taken from anniversary boxset ‘XX’. ‘Clear The Lane’ is propelled on a rolling funk, and if you listen closely you can actually hear the sound of the band sparking the match that set the world alight.
