Turns out the countdown that Rage Against the Machine posted online yesterday probably isn't ticking down to a reunion, but something that's almost more intriguing.

Three-quarters of Rage Against the Machine (everyone except frontman Zach de la Rocha) are reportedly teaming up with Chuck D of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill for a new supergroup called Prophets of Rage, according to Billboard. If that name sounds familiar, it's a reference to Public Enemy's song "Prophets of Rage," from their 1988 album, It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back.

A source told Billboard that Prophets of Rage will make their debut at the Hollywood Palladium on June 3, performing songs by Rage, Public Enemy and Cypress Hill. A possible summer tour is also being "considered."

Of course, this isn't the first time everyone in Rage except Zach de la Rocha formed a new supergoup. In 2001, they joined with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell to create the modern rocking Audioslave. Chuck D previously performed with Rage at the Pinkpop Festival in 1996 and again with Morello at the 2013 Grammys. Rage also covered Cypress Hill on 2000's Renegades.
