Democratic National Convention 2000

Brand new sealed 2019 RSD release.

The organizers of the 2000 Democratic National Convention hoped to have a quiet, peaceful event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but that pretty much became an impossibility when Rage Against the Machine decided to throw a free concert across the street on opening day.

Eight-thousand people showed up and Rage frontman Zack de la Rocha whipped them into a frenzy when he walked onstage.

“Our democracy has been hijacked!” he screamed as the band kicked into “Bulls on Parade.” “Our electoral freedoms in this country are over so long as it’s controlled by corporations! We are not going to allow these streets to be taken over by the Democrats or the Republicans!”
