American rap rock supergroup Prophets of Rage, which release its debut self-titled album Sept. 15, debuted the music video for “Radical Eyes” on Aug. 22, the day after the solar eclipse.  Said guitarist Tom Morello,  “On the heels of this historic solar event, let’s all aim to eclipse racism.” Featuring the lyric “They didn’t hear my cry, they said f**k my crisis,” bandmate/rap legend Chuck D also weighed in on the aggresive anti-racism approach: “The Western world has created biased structures and stereotypes. Opposing viewpoints and movements are seen as radical rather than diversity.” Listen here. — Daniel Teichman
