"Clear the Way For the Prophets of Rage"

Holy crap here come the Prophets of Rage!!! Before I let my excitement get too out of control, here's a quick refresher. The Prophets of Rage are a supergroup composed of Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill and Public Enemy. The group holds the instrumental fire of RATM with guitar wizard Tom Morello and the lyrical spitfire dynamism of Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill. Basically it's like gasoline mixed with lighter fluid combined with jet fuel. There's no shortage of energy on this dream team of OGs.

So without further ado, here's their lead single, appropriately titled the Prophets of Rage. If you're a Rage Against the Machine fan, you're going to love the shotgun start and guitar chord explosion off the top. The lead in grabs your attention and then Chuck D hits you in the face with a hot 16. Then comes the non-stop pounding and controlled chaos of the hook. After alternating verses from B-Real and Chuck D, they close the track with a crowd surf worthy, face-melting breakdown. For someone who grew up listening to all these guys, this was almost too much awesome to handle all at once. If you like the track even half as much as I do, you're going to love it...#ProphetsOfRage
