It's hard to imagine a more unlikely rock couple than Zack de la Rocha, a 22-year-old Chicano who grew up alienated in Irvine and cut his musical teeth on punk rock and hip-hop, and Tom Morello, 28, a Harvard-educated African-American with a taste for aggressive rock. As the spearheads of the Los Angeles band Rage Against the Machine, they're dedicated to restoring angry social commentary to rock.

Rage on: The "limited" reunion of Rage Against the Machine continues to expand. The L.A. band that called it quits in 2000 will play Aug. 24 in East Troy, Wis. That would be their sixth announced show this year, the first being the "one-and-done" show at Coachella in April.

The rock band Rage Against the Machine is known for its incendiary performances, but when the Los Angeles-based quartet staged a benefit concert for convicted murderer Mumia Abu-Jamal here Thursday, it was the band's politics, not its furious playing, at the heart of a mushrooming controversy. "What can a few cops and politicians do to 20,000 crazy [expletives] like yourselves?" lead singer Zack de la Rocha asked rhetorically near the end of Rage's hourlong set at the Continental Airlines Arena.

While President Clinton addressed the nation Monday night from the Democratic National Convention, violence flared in the streets outside, as a few hundred protesters clashed with an extraordinarily forceful Los Angeles Police Department. The melee broke out at the conclusion of a performance that local authorities had been dreading since it was announced.

Rage Against the Machine finds itself in a potentially awkward position. The rock and rap quartet has become a commercial powerhouse while singing songs railing against the oppressive forces of capitalism. The L.A.-based band's two albums together have sold more than 3 million copies in the U.S. This bit of irony--skeptics may call it a contradiction--hasn't been lost on the group's outspoken lead guitarist, Tom Morello.

Concerts are not the only music projects raising funds for Mumia Abu-Jamal. In April, Realized Records, a new Los Angeles-based label, will release "Unbound," a benefit album featuring Rage Against the Machine's Zack de la Rocha, Public Enemy's Chuck D. and the Roots' Black Thought, among other hip-hop and spoken-word artists. Realized's Frank Sosa, 26, believes the controversy surrounding Thursday's New Jersey concert for Abu-Jamal could work to the album's benefit.

The benefit concerts scheduled for Thursday and Friday at the Hollywood Palladium for Native American activist Leonard Peltier have been postponed because of injuries suffered by Timmy C., bass player for the headlining band Rage Against the Machine, in a mountain bike accident last week. The shows are expected to be rescheduled for late April. Tickets for the two sold-out concerts will be honored on the corresponding new dates.

Look for a commercial and cultural explosion in March when the second Rage Against the Machine album arrives. If the yet-to-be-named collection lives up to the promise and power of the Southern California group's 1992 debut and its show-stealing appearances on the 1993 Lollapalooza tour, the package should catapult Rage to a position alongside Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails and Hole as the American leaders in '90s rock. Led by the passionate, charismatic Zack de la Rocha, 24 (above, foreground)
