This awesome rock t-shirt is for the band Rage Against the Machine, and it commemorates the group's promotional tour for the album The Battle of Los Angeles. The shirt features the same artwork pictured on the cover of the album, which was designed by the LA graffiti artist, Joey Krebs. The Battle of Los Angeles debuted at the top of the Billboard chart and managed to sell 450,000 copies in the first week alone. Singles off the album included "Sleep Now in the Fire", "Testify", and "Guerilla Radio", the last of which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance.

Music videos were released for the other two singles, and both videos were directed by documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, best known for his film Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore was actually arrested during the shoot for the "Sleep Now in the Fire" video, which was filmed on the steps of the Federal Hall National Memorial right across the street from the New York Stock Exchange. Moore acquired a permit to shoot at the location, but he did not have a sound permit.

As the NYPD was leading Moore away, he encouraged the band and a large group of gathered fans to storm the stock exchange. They didn't get any farther than the exchange's titanium riot doors, but the incident did halt trading for around two hours, a fact that the group were very proud of.

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There are several small holes and some bleach spots on the left sleeve when wearing, see pics.
