“To everyone asking me if this is real: I would NEVER joke about something this serious, I would NEVER post ‘rumors’ if I couldn’t back it up with solid proof. This isn’t a dream, this is real life.”
RATM is one of the most successful bands in the history of rock music. During their run, they became one of the most popular and influential bands in music history. They are also ranked No. 33 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock. They have sold over 15 million albums till 2010. The band had a large influence on the nu-metal genre which came to prominence during the second half of the 1990s. RATM guitarist Tom Morello has always been talking about the reunion for the last 1 decade. The band has been waiting for singer Zack De La Rocha. In 2016, Tom Morello started a new band Prophets Of Rage with RATM member bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.
