Prophets of Rage invited System of a Down's frontman Serj Tankain on stage last night for a rocking tribute to their late friend Chris Cornell.

Tom Morello, who was performing with Prophets of Rage in New Zealand on Tuesday, honoured the Soundgarden frontman with a cover of Audioslave's Like A Stone almost a year after his untimely passing.

"Not too long ago we lost a very close friend of ours, Chris Cornell," Morello said. "Please show him some appreciation.

"We miss him very much too and we'd like to do this song in his loving memory and we'd like to bring up one of our favourite Kiwis, Serj Tankian."

Prophets of Rage are currently on their way to our fair shores, where they'll perform at the first ever Australian Download Festival in Melbourne.

They're also due to play a number of sideshows, kicking off in Sydney on Thursday March 22 at the Hordern Pavilion.
