The alt-rock supergroup Audioslave consisting of Chris Cornell, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk haven’t performed together since December 2005. The band reunited to play at Prophets Of Rage’s Donald Trump Anti-Inaugural Ball held at Los Angeles’ Teragram Ballroom on Friday, Jan. 20. Prophets Of Rage, the supergroup combining members of Rage Against The Machine, Public Enemy, and Cypress Hill, held its Anti-Trump show, and the RATM alumni’s previous supergroup Audioslave reunited for the first time in 12 years. The Chris Cornell-fronted combo performed a three-song set at Teragram Ballroom along with Prophets, Vic Mensa, Jackson Browne, Jack Black, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir. Watch footage of Audioslave performing “Cochise,” “Like A Stone,” and “Show Me How To Live” below.

“Show Me How To Live”

In a recent statement, the band said,
“The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance. Resistance to racism. Resistance to sexism. Resistance to homophobia. Resistance to bullying. Resistance to environmental devastation. Resistance to fascism. Resistance to Donald Trump. We are staring down the barrel of a dystopian nightmare unless we act NOW, unless we fight back NOW. We intend to create ‘No Trump Zones’ across the country; in our homes, our schools, our places of work, and our concert stages. Bad Presidents make for great music. Join us as we get loud and stand together to defend our rights, our country, and our planet.”

Audioslave last performed together on Dec. 3, 2005, when they played “Doesn’t Remind Me” at the VH1 Big in ’05 Awards.
