Has our new president-elect had you feeling "Like a Stone" lately? Well, if it can ease your anxiety just a little, you'll be happy to know Audioslave will reunite all in the name of protesting Donald Trump.

The hard-rock supergroup—composed of Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, plus Rage Against the Machine members Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk—are set to perform together for the first time in 11 years at Prophet of Rage's upcoming Anti-inaugural Ball on Jan. 20 in Los Angeles. No other reunion shows are planned though, according to Pitchfork.

The Anti-Inaugural Ball also features Jack Black, Vic Mensa, Jackson Browne, and the Los Angeles Freedom Choir. Attendees can also look forward to Morello, Commerford and Wilk performing with Prophets of Rage, their supergroup with Cypress Hill's B-Real and Public Enemy's Chuck D and DJ Lord.

"The Anti-Inaugural Ball is a celebration of resistance," Morello said in a statement. "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."

Tickets for the Anti-Inaugural Ball are on sale now. A portion of proceeds benefit the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network a.k.a. the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization.
