There is no way they this band is going to be able to sound relevant
He'll be feeling a bit left out
"three-quarters of the storied band -- guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk -- are joining forces with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real to form a supergroup called Prophets of Rage (referencing a Public Enemy song of the same name from the 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back) to perform songs by all three bands."
favourite storied band, masm?
How the hell do they come up with these ideas? I like to think that while playing Lollapalooza in 1994 they were all smoking weed and B-Real was like "yeaaah maaaaan, wouldn't it be cool if one time we all teamed up and kicked it on tour together." Once they'd sobered up it seemed like a terrible idea, but now 22 years down the line and with their best years way behind them, the worst ideas of their creative peak seem to brim with possibility.
Will be excited about this teaming up of Paul Banks from Interpol and the RZA
I like some Cypress Hill, but didn't they make homophobic remarks in the press a while ago?
B-Real was heavily rumoured to be replacing him.
There's a setlist here, it includes a PE/CH medley in the middle without any of the Rage guys. Terrible. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/prophets-of-rage-set-defiant-tone-at-explosive-l-a-debut-20160601
“We’re going to set that record straight once and for all: what it really means to rage against the machine.”
i didn't quite catch that line in the chorus.
Y'know, like the one that always ends up in a tree in the garden after a houseparty.
Stuck in my head now
