Prophets of Rage — the new supergroup featuring members of Rage Against The Machine with Public Enemy's Chuck D and Cypress Hill's B-Real and DJ Lord — have shared a new song titled "Prophets of Rage." Listen to it above, courtesy of the band's YouTube.
While the YouTube description calls this a "New original song," it takes quite a few lyrics from the Public Enemy's song of the same name which appeared on 1988's It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. The song is fierce piece of art with determined vocals from Chuck D and B-Real. A strong chorus of "Clear the way" is supported by Tom Morello's distorted guitar riffs and Brad Wilk's vigorous drumming.
The band tweeted a message about the song earlier this afternoon, saying, "In a year we won't soon forget, 'Prophets of Rage' is a song/band for those who feel they no longer have a voice."
In related news, the band announced that they'll be performing a free show at the Republican National Convention today in Cleveland, Ohio. It's scheduled to begin at 1 PM at the End Poverty Now! rally at 1416 E. 47th Street. They'll also be playing The Agora in Cleveland tomorrow as part of their RNC protest.
