Bring The Noise (7:38)

Cover of Attack Of The Killer B's

From Attack Of The Killer B's and 30 other releases

In 1991, Public Enemy recorded a new version of “Bring the Noise” in a collaboration with the thrash metal band Anthrax. Chuck D has stated that upon the initial request of Anthrax, he “didn’t take them wholehearted seriously”, but after the collaboration was done, “it made too much sense”. It was included on the Anthrax album Attack of the Killer B’s and on Public Enemy’s own Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black, and was followed by a joint tour by the two bands, with shows escalating in a dual performance of the song at the very end of the set. Chuck D went on to say that shows on the tour were “some of the hardest” they ever experienced, but when the two bands joined on stage for “Bring the Noise”, “it was shrapnel”.
As one of the first and most admired rap metal songs, the Anthrax version of “Bring the Noise” is considered highly influential. It attempted to bridge the gap between hip hop and heavy metal and paved the way for other attempts to mix the two genres. It was ranked #12 on VH1’s 2006 list of the 40 Greatest Metal Songs and is featured in the video games WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW, WWE Wrestlemania 21 , WWE Day of Reckoning, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2x.
The title of the Anthrax version is sometimes spelled “Bring tha Noise” or “Bring tha Noize”.

Bass, how low can you go? Death Row, what a brother know
Once again back is the incredible, the rhyme animal
The young cannibal, D, Public Enemy number one
"Five-O" said, "Freeze" and I got numb

    Again, sangre, no. You're only revealing your historical ignorance by saying that. Run-DMC, Beastie Boys, Faith No More, Public Enemy's "She Watch Channel Zero?!" came first.

    This track is awesome, but it would be better without the imitation guitar solo.

    Love the people that can't think outside of the box and look past the fact that some metal musicians were influenced by least it wasn't a collaboration with Lil Wayne right?

    And Run-DMC's 1980s material came before this as well, for more foundations. It's nowhere near the invention of rap/metal.

    Berricon: The Beastie Boys' first album came before this, and so did Faith No More's "Epic" and Public Enemy's "She Watch Channel Zero?!", and even "I'm the Man". So, uh, no, shut up, stop yelling, you're wrong as shit.
