Intro

An American Rap/Rock/Heavy Metal supergroup.

Formed in 2016, the group consists of three members out of Rage Against the Machine (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.

Info

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 their 1988 album It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.
