Prophets of Rage Plan to ‘Cause a Ruckus’ at Republican Convention, Tom Morello Says

Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello, Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk have formed Prophets of Rage, a new “supergroup” that will engage in political activism, including plans to perform in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention.

Morello told Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin and John Heilemann this week that Cleveland “will be a perfect place for a band like Prophets of Rage to cause a ruckus, and we will be there in the streets, on the field.” He added that they have a venue selected and other plans for “spontaneous venues,” which he said are the “kind of things you don’t want to broadcast to the local authorities.

It’s unclear whether they will also perform during the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

The group played their inaugural show earlier this week at Whisky a Go Go.

Morello was part of a Rage Against the Machine reunion concert in 2008 in Minneapolis, during the Republican Convention that year, in which more than 100 people were arrested afterward as they marched through the streets.
