REBEL INC. is an intense blend of metal, punk, hip-hop, and alternative rock music, formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. rebel inc. is an intense rock band formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. The original members, Kevin(guitar) and Adam(vocals), relocated with another Detroiter, Brian(drums), and found their bass sound in Benny, an Iowa native who also moved to the Charm City. They are known for their raw, passionate, and explosive stage presence, powerful guitar rhythms, and thought provoking social and political lyrics. These characteristics put them in the realm of bands such as Rage Against the Machine, System of a Down, Korn, Rob Zombie, TOOL, Papa Roach, Linkin Park, and groups of this sort. Their sound also bridges the gaps to Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Metallica, Hollywood Undead, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, and Breaking Benjamin.
Their self-released debut EP has had every song played on terrestrial radio on more than 40 stations in the USA, as well as Canada, Australia, UK, Germany and Italy. It has rave reviews across the globe, from many radio DJ’s, and magazines, including Germany and Italy. In fact, HELLO MUSIC says REBEL INC. is “On the cusp of greatness!” and Kendra Beltran from Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion says, “They would fair well with the commercial crowd at the Van’s Warped Tour, the metal heads at Ozzfest, and the eclectic crowd at Coachella.” Wisconsin radio DJ Gary Schmaltz calls the album “A national treasure.” REBEL INC.’s music was added to the PANDORA RADIO library in the winter of 2011. The sophomore album is in the works to be released in the spring of 2012, and the first 4 singles released have already received radio play.
The group toured US military bases under the sponsorship of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) in 2008, who also sponsored Rage Against the Machine for a stop on the same tour, in Denver, CO (Democratic National Convention).

More Rebel Inc Just For You
REBEL INC. joined some elite names as their song, "Killin’ The Future," has been released on the compilation album "A Soundtrack For Refusal" with Tom Morello, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Strike Anywhere, Jim Page, Ryan Harvey, and many more great artists to benefit the Civilian-Soldier Alliance. The band has also had songs placed in a few films, and has provided support for national artists such as Seether(sold out), Fuel, Anti-Flag, Cold, Kottonmouth Kings, Otep, Hed PE, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus(sold out), Psychostick, Green Jelly, and Nashville Pussy.
REBEL INC. is currently unsigned, and touring as much as possible through the mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and along the east coast on their own dollar. The response has been extremely positive in every city along the tour route, and the fans are increasing rapidly. Radio DJ’s, venue owners, production managers, booking agents, music reviewers, sound engineers, and most importantly, THE LISTENERS, have given the band great feedback on the live show as well as the album. The band played it’s largest show at the 2011 Seattle Hempfest in August, with the Kottonmouth Kings and over 100,000 people in attendance.
In order to truly EXPERIENCE this band, you must see them LIVE. Rebel Inc. is a must see live act, for their recordings do not capture the band’s true sound and their ability to transfer their passion into the crowd with their explosive stage presence.
The following paragraph is the opinion of the album by Kendra Beltran of Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion.
"Rebel Inc.’s self-titled, Rebel Inc., is high energy and not to be taken lightly. Their sound is much like that of Rage Against The Machine; a mix of heavy instrumentation paired with anti-political inspired lyrics. Rebel Inc. has an intense beat to their music that would make their audience breakout into a mosh pit instantaneously. They would fair well with the commercial crowd at the Van’s Warped Tour, pulling the same crowd as Anti-Flag. However, because of their Rage Against The Machine essence, their style would play well with the crowds of metal heads at Ozzfest and the eclectic crowd at Coachella. Their music is versatile and has a mass appeal to anyone and everyone that has a stand to take on political issues musically."
Rebel Inc. will rock you all the way Home! Go Rebel Inc!
