UPDATE: Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello offered a coy response to his bandmate’s quote in a Q&A with fans on Twitter:

EARLIER: Rage Against the Machine were famous for their politically outspoken music, imploring listeners to question everything and everyone. Fifteen years after the last Rage album, bassist Tom Commerford has now given a wide-ranging interview with Rolling Stone, in which he says the band may not be over just yet.

“Anything’s possible. We are still a band, and we still might play again,” he says when asked if he would play at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame if they were ever inducted. “We don’t have anything scheduled right now, but you never know what the future will bring.”

Commerford also says that Rage singer Zack de la Rocha is hard at work on his long-delayed full-length solo album under the name One Day as a Lion. (Earlier this year de la Rocha was featured on Run The Jewels’ “Close Your Eyes (And Count to F–k).”)

Rolling Stone published quotes from Commerford ealrier this week in which he apologized for inspiring Limp Bizkit. “I feel really bad that we inspired such bullsh-t,” he told the magazine.
