Singer and actress Olivia Rodrigo revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone that her favorite band at the moment is the politically-charged, proto-nu metal legend Rage Against The Machine.

Promoting the release of her sophomore album “Guts”, Rodrigo implied that the band had a strong influence on the record, saying “I have been listening to so much Rage Against the Machine this year, that's my favorite band right now. I would just play it over and over again on my way to and from the studio.” The record includes several rock songs, including a rap-rock track named “get him back!”.

She also expressed sadness that she would not be able to attend the band’s induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame due to an “immovable schedule conflict”, saying “I want to go to the Rock Hall of Fame so bad because they're getting inducted. I'm literally going to cry myself to sleep about it.”
