This story of the infamous North Hollywood bank robbery of 1997 that ended in a shootout is a track from American heavy metal band Megadeth's twelfth studio album, Endgame.
Endgame features some interesting sound effects throughout the record including on this track. Frontman Dave Mustaine told Rolling Stone: "Underneath that snare, we're using a sample of an AK-47. It's a gun salute, where they do fire squad. These are things that you hear with records, and you go, "Wow, this is great. I never would have heard this before."
