Earlier today when reports surfaced about a possible Rage Against The Machine reunion, everyone (including us) went out of their minds. What better place than here? What better time than now?
Those claims have been largely deflated, though they aren’t entirely false either. We will be seeing a Rage Against The Machine reunion — without vocalist Zach De La Rocha. God dammit Zach, get your shit together!
The band, being billed as ‘Prophets of Rage’ will feature every member of Rage Against The Machine except for vocalist Zach De La Rocha according to a new report from Amplify. Our earlier report echoed this sentiment though we didn’t have details on the members.
The vocalists of the new band will be none other than: Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real
Before you get too bummed, remember that sick cover Rage Against The Machine did of Cypress Hill’s ‘How I Could Just Kill A Man’? They’ll probably be playing that one live — and it’s extremely heavy!
It gets even better: the band will perform songs from all three respective bands, so we WILL in fact hear Rage Against The Machine songs. That’s more evidence that Rage Against The Machine has given up on Zach De La Rocha performing with the band consistently in the future.
Prophets of Rage is currently planning a big national tour and again… they WILL be performing Rage Against The Machine songs live. I’d love to see what B-Real could do with their songs. Count me in 100%!
