Rage Against The Machine elected to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame


Less than a year after rocking the Plains of Abraham during an anthology concert at the Festival d'été de Québec, Rage Against The Machine is now officially one of the gods of rock.

The rap metal quartet of Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, we learned on Wednesday morning.

Rage Against The Machine, which had its heyday in the 1990s, notably with the anthem Killing In The Name, will not be the only big name to shine at the induction ceremony on November 3 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Kate Bush, whose 1985 song Running Up That Hill got a second life thanks to the series Stranger Things, is also in the 2023 cohort of the rock hall of fame, along with the late George Michael, Sheryl Crow, Missy Elliott, Willie Nelson and the band The Spinners.

The founding partner of longtime stars of Elton John, Bernie Taupin, Chaka Khan, Al Kooper, DJ Kool Herc, Link Wray and Don Cornelius will also be honored during the evening.

Among the candidates for the Temple who have not been elected and who will have to try their luck again, we note the names of Iron Maiden, Cyndi Lauper, Joy Division/New Order, Soundgarden, A Tribe Called Quest, The White Stripes and Warren Zevon.
