Inside Out

Inside Out was a hardcore punk band from Orange County, California, most notable for being the first band for which Rage Against the Machine's Zack de la Rocha was the frontman. (Before fronting Inside Out, he also played guitar in a straight edge band called Hardstance, and another band called Farside.) Their existence was relatively brief -- they released a single 7" EP, No Spiritual Surrender (album), in 1990, on Revelation Records. They played several shows and even toured the east coast once before their breakup in 1991. They had written material for a second record, to be titled Rage Against the Machine (whence the name for de la Rocha's next band came), but the band broke up shortly after their guitarist, Vic DiCara, left the band to become a Hare Krishna monk.

Inside Out's was composed of the following:

Sterling Wilson also played bass for the band before Mark Wilson joined the band full-time.
