Zack de la Rocha with 'Rage Against the Machine' performs at the designated protest site near the Democratic National Convention in on Aug. 14, 2000 in Los Angeles.

It’s not exactly new Rage Against the Machine, but it’s better than none at all. On Record Store Day, the rap-rock heroes will release Live at the Democratic National Convention 2000a document of a DNC protest performance just before their breakup later that year.

"Less than a year after the release of The Battle of Los Angeles, Rage Against The Machine waged their own battle of Los Angeles in the summer of 2000, staging an incendiary concert in protest of the American political party system across from the Staples Center while the Democratic National Convention was held inside," reads the description of the album. "This raw, uncompromising set is now available for the first time anywhere, pressed exclusively on vinyl for Record Store Day 2018."

The set is short, but contains entries from each of Rage’s records apart from their final covers album Renegades: “Bulls on Parade,” “Testify,” “Guerrilla Radio,” “Sleep Now in the Fire,” “Freedom,” and “Killing in the Name.” It will be available in an edition of 5,000 on April 21.
