In a new Billboard interview, Tom Morello revealed that Rage Against The Machine members have had no discussion about their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination, and about what they might do if inducted for the class of 2019, where a performance would be expected.
Morello’s other endeavor for 2019 may involve Rage Against the Machine, which is again nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s class of 2019. Voting wraps on Dec. 10, with an announcement of the inductees expected later in the week. “If there’s ever a year where we need some raging against the machine, it would be 2018 — but of that I have no control,” Morello says.
“I looked at the ballot and I think of the 15 or so on there I would happily vote for 13 of them.” Morello adds that “there has not been discussion” among the Rage members about the nomination or what they might do if selected for induction in April.
Rage Against The Machine are far behind in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame internet fan vote, though big name rock radio host Eddie Trunk revealed in a recent tweet that he voted for them on the official ballot. Rage Against The Machine last performed live at LA Rising in July 2011, ending their four year reunion that resulted in no new material.
