Rage against the machine – Evil Empire
was the typical audience, but I never owned this album, or any Rage Against the Machine music. 1996 was 3 years before Napster, the first unlicensed file sharing service. If you didn’t buy music, or make a copy of a friend’s tape or disk, you relied on the radio. XM radio was even further away, but their songs full of biting lyrics and some prevalent four-letter words still managed to get airplay. In 1996, I relied on the popular songs that made it that far, rather than diving into the entire studio release. I could enjoy the sounds, but a lot of meaning was lost on me.
