Audioslave to Reunite for Friday’s “Anti-Inaugural Ball”
What the world needs now is a time machine to take us all back to November 7. Barring that, what the world needs now is Rage Against the Machine. If ever there was a time when the machine needed to be raged against, that time is the present.
If we can’t have Rage Against the Machine back, the next best thing would be for Stray from the Path to start writing political lyrics. But the third best option, I suppose, would be an Audioslave reunion.
For better or worse, that’s what we’re getting: the supergroup, which consists of three-fourths of RATM (guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford, and drummer Brad Wilk) and one-fourth of Soundgarden (vocalist Chris Cornell) will reunite to play this Friday’s “Anti-Inaugural Ball” in Los Angeles. It will be their first performance since Cornell left the band in 2007. The event will be headlined by Prophets of Rage, the other supergroup to feature three-fourths of RATM.
So while Donald Trump and his cronies are dancing the night away to the smooth vocal stylings of the eighth runner-up from So You Think You Can Sing Better Than My Pregnant Teenage Mom or whatever, a few hundred people will be protesting the Trump Presidency with this:
That oughta show ’em but good. That song certainly make me wanna throw up my hands and surrender.
Tickets to the event are available here.
