The band's name comes from Public Enemy's song of the same name, which can be found on their album It Take A Nation Of Millions to Hold Us Back. Members include RATM's Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk; Public Enemy's Chuck D; and Cypress Hill's B Real and DJ Lord.
Oh, and don't call them a supergroup.
"We're not a supergroup," Morello told Rolling Stone. "We're an elite task force of revolutionary musicians determined to confront this mountain of election year bullshit, and confront it head-on with Marshall stacks blazing."
