Tears of Rage is a song written by Bob Dylan and Richard Manuel of The Band, the former writing the lyrics and the melody being provided by the latter.

It was first recorded in rehearsal sessions at The Band's upstate New York residence, "Big Pink", during 1967, with Dylan on lead vocal. This recording and those from the rest of the sessions would not be officially released for another eight years, although they were widely bootlegged in the late 1960s and early '70s.

The first official release of the song was a studio recording made by The Band without Dylan, featuring Manuel on lead vocal and included on their 1968 debut album Music from Big Pink.

The Dylan-sung version emerged officially in 1975 on the compilation album The Basement Tapes. The song has been recorded by a number of other artists, including Joan Baez, Gene Clark, Jerry Garcia, and Albert Lee.
