Avid skaters and surfers from Southern California, Incubus first came together as teenagers at Calabasas High School in the early '90s. They gigged early and often at rundown joints across L.A. County and self-released their first album of hip-hop-inflected hard rock and psychedelic urban punk, titled Fungus Amongus, in '95. Their second record was picked up by Sony and went gold, leading to double platinum status and Top 10 tracks from the two albums that followed. More radio-friendly than the band's earlier stuff, Make Yourself and Morning View were still bolder and more unusual than Incubus' modern rock peers, working with scathingly funky breaks and scratchy guitars and even -- with the seven-minute long "Aqueous Transmission" -- delving into sound-collage abstraction. By the '04 release of A Crow Left of the Murder, Incubus had renegotiated their contract with Sony and reached their popular peak, headlining sold-out world tours and playing festivals like Lollapalooza and the Bridge School Benefit. They released their sixth album, Light Grenades, in late 2006.

Runtime: 1 hr 17 minFilmed at a sold-out Riviera Theatre in Chicago in March 2010, “Alive In The Windy City” is the first Stone Temple Pilots live concert to be authorized for video release.

Rage Against The Machine
Runtime: 1 hr 24 minRage Against the Machine released this self-titled film in 1997, collecting live concert footage and music videos of some of their best material. The band starts with a passionate rendition of Bruce Springsteen's "Ghost of Tom Joad" live from the Irvine Meadows in Irvine, CA. The well-filmed performance captures Rage near the top of their game. Seeing Zack de la Rocha interact with a large crowd and the band work a tight, incendiary groove is required to understand the appeal of the now-defunct political rock band. This is underscored by "People of the Sun" and four other songs live from the Rock Am Ring Festival in Germany, where Rage plays before what must be 100,000 people. The second half of the film is filled with six music videos, including "Freedom" and "Memory of the Dead (Land and Liberty)."
