Raging against the dying of this particular light, the lame-duck rock revolutionaries come up with an appropriate close to this chapter in their history, which ended with the recent departure of singer Zack de la Rocha. "Renegades" is a collection of songs that have inspired the Los Angeles rabble-rousers, and while it can be a stretch to go from Eric B & Rakim to Bruce Springsteen to Devo to the MC5, they all feed the Rage formula of brutal, metal-edged hip-hop rock and radical polemics.

"This machine here, it kills fascists too," said Audioslave's Tom Morello on Wednesday, pointing his acoustic guitar toward the capacity Troubadour crowd during a benefit concert titled "Axis of Justice." The youthful audience cheered, though most probably didn't get Morello's reference to a slogan that once adorned folk singer Woody Guthrie's instrument.

Add Rage Against the Machine to the list of rockers, including Elvis Costello and Sinead O'Connor, who have butted heads with "Saturday Night Live." The L.A. rock band with radical political views saw its recent booking on the NBC-TV show as an opportunity to make a high-profile statement against a U.S. political system it believes is geared to the wealthy -- right under the nose of guest host Steve Forbes, the billionaire publisher and former Republican presidential hopeful.

Hundreds of gaming fanatics lined up around Westwood's Hollywood Video last week because they just couldn't wait to play Sega's much-anticipated Dreamcast system. You may have seen Sega's billboards announcing the system's arrival on "9/9/99." But Thursday morning, at 12:01 a.m., the store made 100 of the consoles available for rental. Verne Troyer (1), better known as Austin Powers' pint-sized alter ego Mini-Me, arrived with an entourage of similarly diminutive bodyguards.

Kudos to writer-director Antonino D'Ambrosio for taking such an eclectic and disparate number of aims, thoughts, subjects and mediums and creating the smart and inspiring - and uniquely whole - documentary that is "Let Fury Have the Hour. " A kind of think/performance piece about what's termed here "creative reaction," the film hears from a stirring swath of socially conscious artists whose work largely emerged as an anger-channeling counter to the Reagan-Thatcher era of conservative individualism.

As we close the book on 2012, which among other things included the ambitious yearlong multifaceted salute to Woody Guthrie on the 100 th anniversary of his birth, Pop & Hiss will take a page from America's most celebrated folk singer and songwriter. Two pages, actually, that contain 33 new year's resolutions that Guthrie concocted just as the year 1942 was about to begin. They range from whimsical (No. 3: “Wash teeth if any”) to serious (No. 27: “Help win war - Beat fascism”)

The politically charged rock band Rage Against the Machine had the bulletin board service on its official Web site yanked Friday after fans made inflammatory postings--including one reportedly threatening President Bush--in response to this week's terrorist attacks. Infopop, a Seattle-based Internet company, cut off its hosting service to the band's message board after being contacted by the Secret Service, according to the company's president, Michael Moore.
