The name "Raised Fist" came as an idea from the Rage Against the Machine song "Know Your Enemy", where part of the lyrics are as follows: "Born with an insight and a raised fist..." The band has become more successful over the years, with its aggressive music and vocals today considered as one of the most energetic live acts to be found. As an example of their rise, the band played at the large Scandinavian Roskilde Festival in 2004. Burning Heart Records, the band's former record label, houses many other Swedish punk and hardcore bands. The band currently consists of five members, where the latest newcomer is the drummer Matte Modin (formerly of Dark Funeral).
Vocalist Alexander appeared in an interview on Swedish television TV4 where he criticizes the EU Directive on the enforcement of intellectual property rights in EU countries.
