Prophets Of Rage Disband Following Rage Against The Machine Reunion

Prophets Of Rage, the band featuring Rage Against The Machine’s Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord, and Cypress Hill’s B-Real, appear to have called it quits. This news isn’t too surprising considering Rage Against The Machine will be reuniting next year.

B-Real issued the following statement:

“I want to say thank you to the fans that supported @prophetsofrage for the time we’ve been rocking together. It’s been an honor to rock stages and people of all ages with these guys. It’s been a great time and great memories in a short time. Rockin along side of Chuck and Tom has been amazing to say the least. It was fun while it lasted and I hope we left a big impression and that the music has been a source of inspiration for those that needed it. That was the purpose we got together. So I say to y’all stay informed, stay engaged and fight the good fight. ✌🏽️🤟🏼”

Chuck D also commented:

“It was about doing something greater than self. 2020 keeping ZDLR spot warm for @RATM & powering a 👊🏿statement for 1000 days was a honorable truth mission in the hours of chaos from the jump… And so the bands rock on…. Let’s go @cypresshill @PublicEnemyFTP @prophetsofrage”

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.”
