Prophets Of Rage Premiere “Pop Goes The Weapon” Music Video

Prophets Of Rage (Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, Cypress Hill) have premiered a new video for their new song “Pop Goes The Weapon.” This track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album. The group said the following:

“#PopGoesTheWeapon reflects the ongoing gun violence happening in America. Guns are both the subject of religious worship AND huge profits in the United States. Combined with emboldened white nationalism the recent epidemic of massacres is little surprise. #PopGoesTheWeapon channels our “thoughts & prayers” through Marshall stacks & microphones.”

Prophets Of Rage Premiere New Song “Made With Hate”

Prophets Of Rage (Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, Cypress Hill) have premiered a new song titled “Made With Hate.” This track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album. Chuck D commented:

“AS WITH MANY songs ‘Made With Hate’ was formed out of a conversation amongst ourselves about the level of passion fuel it takes to create. Especially when attacking something of HATE. You must create the energy to hate ‘HATE’. To have PEACE you have to despise Hatred with a passion for Peace and attack it. You can’t have hate take over anything especially history, so you have to fuel yourself to attack in thought word and deed with equal passion.”

Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Prophets Of Rage) Discusses Living With Type 1 Diabetes

Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine, Prophets Of Rage) recently shared an Instagram post in which he discusses living with Type 1 Diabetes. You can check out that post below. Wilk was diagnosed with the disease in 1997.

I’ve been a Type 1 diabetic for almost 20 years now. Not gonna lie it’s a real shitty but manageable disease. It’s very different than Type 2 diabetes in that it has more to do with genetics and or environment. But fact is if you want good control (or to cure your type 2!), it all starts with Diet and exercise. Anyone living with this disease, know that you don’t have to let it control your life. You need to control the disease. I’ve been living my life and traveling around the world for 20 years with it. Don’t let this disease stop you from doing the things you wanna do. Unless you want to enter a pie eating contest. I’d say skip that 💩!!! 🤪✌️ Shout out to @jordanfperform for keepin me in line! #fuckyoutodiabetes #fucksugar
