Tom Morello Opens Up About Rage Against The Machine Being Inducted Into The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

Tom Morello Accidentally Knocked Off Stage By Security Guard

During a recent radio interview, Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello opened up about his band being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year. He said, “It’s great. And we were nominated five times, and so I was pleased that we finally got in on the fifth one. I like the idea that there’s a place like the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame that pays attention to the accomplishments in multiple genres for things artists have done.”

He continued, “Over the course of the last few years, I think the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame has become more democratic. Hard rock artists, which were normally kind of marginalized — from RUSH to KISS to JUDAS PRIEST to even Stevie Ray Vaughan, which had trouble getting in — now are welcomed in. So I think it’s a nice home for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, to be joining some of my favorite bands: BLACK SABBATH, AC/DC, PUBLIC ENEMY, THE CLASH. That’s pretty good company to be in.”
