Video: PROPHETS OF RAGE Perform On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

PROPHETS OF RAGE, the supergroup featuring members of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, PUBLIC ENEMY's Chuck D and CYPRESS HILL's B-Real, was the musical guest on last night's (Monday, July 25) episode of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" The band played several songs on the show's outdoor stage in front of a standing-room-only crowd. Video footage of the reimagined PUBLIC ENEMY track "Prophets Of Rage" and a version of the RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE classic "Killing In The Name" can be seen below.

Even though PROPHETS OF RAGE does not feature RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE frontman Zack de la Rocha, the group plays classics like "Bulls On Parade" along with tunes by PUBLIC ENEMY and CYPRESS HILL.

"I think the music of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE is more relevant today than it was when it was written," Morello told Cleveland.com. "And we give a lot of credit and honor to Zack at every show because his lyrics are brilliant."

Earlier in the month, PROPHETS OF RAGE released the "Prophets Of Rage" single through digital download and streaming services. A re-imagination of the PUBLIC ENEMY song of the same name, with new music and a new original verse from B-Real, the song gave life to the band's name. The single was recorded with legendary producer Brendan O'Brien who has done notable work with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and AUDIOSLAVE.

PROPHETS OF RAGE made their live debut in May in Los Angeles, playing numbers from all three acts.

The band will embark on a North American tour in August.
