Dave Grohl Kicks Out the Jams with Prophets of Rage in Toronto: Watch
“You’re going to flip the f--k out right now,” rapper B-Real said at the Toronto stop of the Prophets of Rage tour on Wednesday night at Molson Amphitheatre before bringing Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl out onstage during the encore.
Prophets of Rage — the politically-conscious supergroup comprised of Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk; Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord; and B-Real from Cypress Hill — is just six dates into their lengthy Make America Rage Again Tour that ends Oct. 16 in Chula Vista, Calif.
The Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer stood front and center at the mic, guitar in hand, and launched into the MC5's mighty revolutionary protest anthem “Kick Out the Jams," with B-Real and Chuck D sharing vocal duties and Morello matching Grohl's furious six-string strumming and adding one of his signature ripping solos.
The 1969 classic seems to be a favorite for Grohl and his buds. In 2010, at Belgium’s Rock Werchter festival, he joined Pearl Jam on the song, playing a raucous tambourine standing behind the drum kit.
In a tweet after the Molson Amphitheatre show, B-Real (twitter handle Dr. Greenthumb) posted a photo and wrote: “The one and only Dave Grohl rocked one with us tonight in Toronto .. Check it on the prophets of rage Facebook page.”
