Help! Song from The Matrix?

The song at the end of The Matrix. When Neo walks out the phone booth...what is that song?

Whenever I watch this move that beat stays in my head for a few days

I feel I should hear the rest of it and see if it's any good

"Wake Up" by Rage Against the Machine.

Yep, that's it. Thanks.

Good ole .99 itunes. Glad it wasn't attached to one of those "buy the whole damn album or you don't get this 1 song" rip offs.

But you should buy the whole album. Almost every track is a great one.

Yea, I'm liking this song I may pick up the album.

So...for someone like me who doesn't know...what does this group fall under? Rock, Metal, Alternative or something else? What else can you recommend to me?

Alternative, definitely, Rage is one of the pioneers of the genre.

I would recommend Audioslave (Rage + Chris Cornell of soundgarden) and Linkin Park (carrying the Rage torch).

I usually put Rage in the big ol' category of ROCK. I never disliked the "Alternative" label until I got older and with hindsight realized that what we labelled Alternative was all over the radio and hence was just the next step of evolution of Rock.

Alternative would be better suited as a name for "Indie" Rock that doesn't get much airplay.

Ah, but this is a discussion for a different thread, methinks.

Rage rules! If you like "Wake Up" so much, definitely pick up their self-titled debut album. They are also, IMO, the only ones to ever get that sound right - Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit and all the other knock-offs never appealed to me.

I do agree with you from what they've done now, but they've proven to have a lot of talent, and a great lead vocalist, they just need to spruce up their writing and I think they are definitely capable of becoming great.

As for RATM, all their albums are great, but I think their last is definitely their strongest. Renegades. Maggie's Farm is one of my favorite rock tracks ever.

You are certainly entitled to your OPINION, but I think it's a crock of shit to say that.

LP is a solid band who's carrying the Rage torch well. Of course, they aren't Rage, but they aren't Bizkit either.
