The supergroup Prophets Of Rage is touring Europe and on August 27 played in Athens, Greece.
There, the audience was amazing, and included flares and fireworks, the band played Audioslave’s “Cochise” as a way of honoring late singer Chris Cornell.
Before playing the song, guitarist Tom Morello said:
“I said IS CHRIS CORNELL ’!”
“If you know the lyrics, sing along, because now you are his voice. If you don’t know the lyrics, just like Rock fucking in your memory.”
In a post on his official Instagram account that you can see below, the guy even posted a video that shows the band playing Rage Against The Machine and the audience enjoying the show with “no cell phone in sight”.
Prophets of Rage is an American rap rock supergroup. Formed in 2016, the group consists of three members of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave (bassist and backing vocalist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello, and drummer Brad Wilk), two members of Public Enemy (DJ Lord and rapper Chuck D), and rapper B-Real of Cypress Hill.
Morello declared to Rolling Stone: “We’re an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing.”
The band’s name derives from the title of the Public Enemy song “Prophets of Rage” from its 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. To coincide with the band’s protest performance at the Republican National Convention, it released its debut single, titled “Prophets of Rage”. The band played its first live show on January 20, 2016.
