These are complicated times we're living in.
The hard Right is on the march, and sometimes it can seem as though progressive policies - y'know... the ones based on love and respect - and being pushed to the sidelines.
Thank heavens, then, for the caustic, unrestrained noise that fuels Prophets Of Rage and their new single 'Made With Hate'.
Pairing a prime Tom Morello guitar line against some ferocious Chuck D rhymes, it's a potent line of attack from politics progressive wing.
Chuck D explains:
“AS WITH MANY songs ‘Made With Hate’ was formed out of a conversation amongst ourselves about the level of passion fuel it takes to create. Especially when attacking something of HATE. You must create the energy to hate ‘HATE’.”
“To have PEACE you have to despise Hatred with a passion for Peace and attack it. You can’t have hate take over anything especially history, so you have to fuel yourself to attack in thought word and deed with equal passion.”
Tune in now.
