De La Rocha explains the album title: "Los Angeles is famous for Hollywood and for its culture of entertainment, but the reality is that it's a city that's in permanent conflict between those who have and those who do not, between those who were born privileged and those who have been abandoned by the Government system." Rage's music has always tried to reflect and to raise those voices of the vulnerable, and the album's title has to do with that. Tom has also said that this album relates the important factor that a band like Rage Against the Machine could have only occurred in Los Angeles - the sound, the ethnic makeup of the band, the intensity of the live shows - it's entirely Los Angeles. The struggles that the band went through in order to make it all work was a battle in it's own.
