Tom Morello Picks Macklemore’s ‘Hind’s Hall’ As The Most Rage Against The Machine Song Since RATM

Tom Morello thinks Macklemore’s recent release, ‘Hind’s Hall,’ has a similar vibe to the Rage Against the Machine songs.

The guitarist took to X to share his thoughts on Macklemore’s track. He wrote:

“Honestly, Macklemore’s ‘Hind’s Hall’ is the most Rage Against The Machine song since Rage Against The Machine.”

The rapper recently announced his new song on his X account with the following words:

“‘HIND’S HALL.’ Once it’s up on streaming all proceeds to UNRWA.”

What Is ‘Hind’s Hall’ About?

‘Hind’s Hall’ is about current student protests worldwide related to Palestine and honors Hind Rajab, a 6-year-old Palestinian child killed by the Israeli military. It uses a sample from Fairouz’s song ‘Ana La Habibi.’ The song is less than three minutes long and talks about issues like police brutality, American politics, racism, social media censorship, and student activism.

Even though you can’t listen to the song on streaming platforms yet, Macklemore plans to donate all the money made from it to the UNRWA once it’s available. Right now, the song clip has been watched over 7.3 million times on X.

Fan Reactions To Morello’s Post

In the comment section, the fans of the band generally praised RATM for touching on political issues. One person wrote:

“Tom, you know what Rage did SO well? You guys put the message in a catchy hook that was easy to understand and would get stuck in people’s heads. Brilliant. Macklemore’s song fights the good fight – Yes! But Rage had people singing the message after hearing a song one time!”

Another individual agreed with Morello’s take on the song:

“It’s brilliant. Nailed the tone!”

One other fan called for a new material from RATM:

“Seems like each year for the past decade we’ve needed Rage Against the Machine more than ever.”

Rage Against the Machine’s debut album in 1992 made them famous for tackling political issues like education and class injustice. They continued this activism in their later albums, like ‘Evil Empire’ and ‘Battle for Los Angeles.’ The band also took part in protests to raise awareness about global political issues.
