The new video from supergroup Prophets Of Rage (formed of members of Rage Against the Machine, Audioslave, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill) has been released in an attempt to open some eyes, using straight talking imagery which has been said to draw a line between the civil rights era struggle of the 60’s and the ugly events that unfolded last week in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The video includes images of the following ‘radicals’ – Barry Goldwater, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Roger Stone, George Carlin, Paul Manafort, David Duke, Noam Chomsky, Jeff Sessions, Osama Bin Laden, Maya Angelou, Theresa May and Steve Bannon. The video ends on Trump with a Hitler moustache.
Prophets Of Rage are set to release a new album in September, ‘Radical Eyes’ is a mere taste of whats to come.
This supergroup clearly has a wealth of talent and experience but what makes them truly special is how they stand up for what they believe in. They currently believe in “power as a tool and a weapon”. What better way to get messages across to people than music?
