    From Wikipedia:

    Rage Against the Machine is the debut studio album by American rock band Rage Against the Machine, released on November 3, 1992 by Epic Records. The band released their demo album, also called Rage Against the Machine 11 months prior which contained earlier recordings of 7 of the 12 songs found on this album. With politically themed lyrical content, the album artwork was notable for featuring a graphic photograph of Thích Quảng Đức committing self-immolation.

    The first picture is the front cover for the 20th anniversary pressing of the album. The “rage against the machine” type is Prestige 12 Pitch, but it was distorted by the designer.

    The second picture is the back cover of the 1992 CD release of the album. On both spines, the title/band name is again in Prestige 12, but distorted. The album track listing and production credits use FF Trixie Text.

    The art direction is credited to the band and Nicky Lindeman.
