"Dodge" is really Dodge City, Kansas - the location of many Westerns - where the phrase "Get the hell out of Dodge" originates. Public Enemy commandeered the phrase for this song, which their leader Chuck D explained in an interview with Melody Maker. Said Chuck: "'Get The F--k Outta Dodge' is about apartheid in America, in the form of noise pollution laws which are designed so that you can't drive your car through a white neighborhood with your system playing loud. And I'm saying when the s--t gets that crazy, you've just got to get the f--k out of town. I got stopped a while back for playing my system too loud, 'cause I was a black guy riding through a white neighborhood in a jeep."
