PROPHETS OF RAGE Perform 'Living On The 110' On 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' (Video)
PROPHETS OF RAGE, the supergroup featuring members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS HILL, performed the song "Living On The 110" on last night's (Monday, September 11) edition of NBC's "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon". You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.
"Living On The 110" is taken from PROPHETS OF RAGE's self-titled debut album, which will be released on September 15. The disc was recorded with legendary producer Brendan O'Brien who has done notable work with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and AUDIOSLAVE.
"'Living On The 110' is a song that speaks to the issue of homelessness," PROPHETS OF RAGE guitarist Tom Morello said in a statement. "The 110 is a freeway in Los Angeles and living beneath it are thousands of homeless people. Bentleys and Rolls Royces roaring by are literally driving on top of the poor and their makeshift homes, a picture-perfect analogy for the grotesque economic inequality that plagues our times."

Morello told Billboard that the members of PROPHETS OF RAGE have set a very high bar for the material that they want to release. "The goal is a simple one: The music has to be devastating," he explained. "In all these interviews, we talk a lot about the politics, but the cornerstone is that the music has to be devastating and we have to not just be competitive with our legacies, but in , it has to be something that goes beyond that and is very authentic, unapologetic and contemporary."
PROPHETS OF RAGE made their live debut in May 2016 in Los Angeles.
