Among the acts entering the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2023, the institution has officially confirmed that Rage Against the Machine will be inducted!

Unfortunately, Iron Maiden, nor Soundgarden, made the cut.

Alongside Rage Against the Machine, Missy Elliott, George Michael, Willie Nelson, Kate Bush, Sheryl Crow, and The Spinners will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2023.

The induction ceremony will take place this upcoming November 3rd.

Per a comment from Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame CEO and president Joel Peresman (as shared by Blabbermouth):

“We’re very happy with this year’s class. People always try to pigeonhole what rock and roll is, but our story has always been that it’s a wide tent. It includes all different kinds of genres. We think this class really shows the breadth of rock and roll. When you have Missy Elliott, Sheryl Crow and The Spinners along with Rage Against the Machine and Willie Nelson, you’re covering a lot of things.”

A major congratulations to Rage Against the Machine – this is a massive achievement that you deserve. It also would have been amazing to see Iron Maiden and Soundgarden make the cut, for both bands are incredibly deserving to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. What do you think of Rage Against the Machine being inducted into the Rock Hall? Do you feel they deserve it?

Rage Against the Machine formed in 1991 and has cemented itself as one of the most important bands in heavy metal history. Over the course of their career, the band has released four studio albums, their most recent being 2000’s Renegade. RATM consists of Tom Morello (guitarist), Zack de la Rocha (vocalist), Tim Commerford (bassist), and Brad Wilk (drummer).
