Prophets Of Rage, the supergroup consisting of three-quarters of Rage Against the Machine as well as Chuck D and B-Real, made its live debut on Tuesday night at the famed Los Angeles club Whiskey A Go Go, and unveiled new music while also barreling through classics from Public Enemy, Cypress Hill and Rage.
The show opened with Public Enemy's "Prophets Of Rage," of course, and reportedly included a song called "The Party's Over" that referenced Donald Trump. A mash-up of Beastie Boys' "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn" and "Fight The Power" was also unveiled before an encore of Rage's "Killing in the Name."
Tom Morello, Brad Wilk and Tim Commerford teased a collaboration with Chuck D B-Real last month. There's no official word on whether the guys will tour behind the supergroup (probably), or release an album together (maybe?). According to Billboard, Chuck D said at the end of the performance, "There's always a seat warm for Zack de la Rocha"; the Rage frontman has not participated in the project, although it does look like he's working on an album of his own.
