10 inch Vinyl Record
EP reissue. "People of the Sun" is the second single by American rap metal band Rage Against the Machine for their 1996 album Evil Empire. The song about Mexico's Zapatista revolution was nominated for a Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy in 1998, but it lost to The Smashing Pumpkins' "The End Is the Beginning Is the End."
In 1997 Rage Against The Machine released the "People Of The Sun" EP on 10-inch vinyl. It was distributed by Revelation Records, who had signed lead vocalist Zack de La Rocha's previous band Inside Out before they split in 1990. Rage Against the Machine earned acclaim from disenfranchised fans (and not insignificant derision from critics) for their bombastic, fiercely polemical music, which brewed sloganeering leftist rants against corporate America, cultural imperialism, and government oppression into a Molotov cocktail of punk, hip-hop, and thrash.
