Rage Against the Machine are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album with the release of a box set titled Rage Against the Machine – XX.

According to RATH.com, the box set "contains never-before seen early concert footage and full 2010 Finsbury Park Victory Concert along with remastered debut album, original demos and treasure trove of videos and music.

Also available as a Special Edition set, featuring 2 CD and bonus DVD and Anniversary Edition with original album remastered plus bonus tracks".

Amazon reports:

"Newly remastered for this anniversary release, Rage Against the Machine – XX will be available as a CD in three configurations: 1) 20th Anniversary Edition Deluxe Box Set housing two CDs, two DVDs, one 12" 180gm vinyl LP, one 40 page booklet and two-sided poster; 2) 20th Anniversary Special Edition featuring two CDs and a bonus DVD featuring six tracks in an oversized softpack and 3) 20th Anniversary Edition single compact disc (with three bonus tracks).

CD 1 includes the original album, remastered, with 3 bonus tracks of collectible b-sides from era.

CD 2 presents the original Rage Against the Machine demo tape. Recorded in 1991 and sold for $5 at the merch table at early Rage shows, the tape achieved mythical word-of-mouth status amongst music fans while helping to seal the band’s deal with Epic Records. The 20th anniversary releases of Rage Against the Machine – XX marks the first time the entire RATM demo tapes have seen a full official release.

Bonus DVD includes the three music videos from the album (Killing In The Name, Bombtrack and Freedom) plus three previously unreleased live performances: Take The Power Back (Vic Theatre 1993), Bombtrack (Soundstage performance 1992) and Wake Up (Nomads 1992)."
