If Rage Against the Machine continued to make new music, it's easy to see how "Living On The 110" would fit perfectly into their cannon. Unfortunately, the blazing voice of Zack de la Rocha is not to be found on the track, but B-Real and Chuck D do an excellent job filling the spot.
Tom Morello explained the title of the song:
"'Living On The 110' is a song that speaks to 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."
Prophets of Rage's debut self-titled album is due September 15. The band worked with Brendan O'Brien, who previous produced Rage and Audioslave albums.
