Prophets of Rage’s New Single ‘Living on the 110′ Stands Up for the Homeless
In the song, the politically-minded band addresses the issue of homelessness. “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,” guitarist Tom Morello said.
In keeping with their theme of promoting awareness and change, the group debuted another new song from the Brendan O’Brien-produced LP called “Unf— the World,” at a show in Chile in May. A month later, they shared a video for the song, produced by Michael Moore.
Chuck D has been busy, with Public Enemy also releasing a new album Nothing Is Free in the Desert early, as a free download on Bandcamp two weeks ago.
