  • Bass! How low can you go?
    Death row, what a brother knows
    Once again, back is the incredible
    The rhyme animal
    The uncannable D, Public Enemy Number One
    Five-O said, "Freeze!" and I got numb
    Can I tell 'em that I never really had a gun?
    But it's the wax that the Terminator X spun
    Now they got me in a cell cause my records, they sell
    Cause a brother like me said, "Well
    Farrakhan's a prophet and I think you ought to listen to
    What he can say to you, what you wanna do is follow for now"
    Power of the people, say
    "Make a miracle, D, pump the lyrical"
    Black is back, all in, we're gonna win
    Check it out, yeah y'all, here we go again

    Turn it up! Bring the noise!
    Turn it up! Bring the noise!

    Never badder than bad cause the brother is madder than mad
    At the fact that's corrupt as a senator
    Soul on a roll, but you treat it like soap on a rope
    Cause the beats and the lines are so dope
    Listen for lessons I'm saying inside
    Music that the critics are blasting me for
    They'll never care for the brothers and sisters
    Mow, cause the country has us up for the war
    We got to demonstrate, come on now, they're gonna have to wait
    Till we get it right
    Radio stations I question their blackness
    They call themselves black, but we'll see if they'll play this

    Turn it up! Bring the noise!
    Turn it up! Bring the noise!

    Get from in front of me, the crowd runs to me
    My deejay is warm, he's X, I call him Norm, ya know
    He can cut a record from side to side
    So what, the ride, the glide should be much safer than a suicide
    Soul control, beat is the father of your rock'n'roll
    Music for whatcha, for whichin', you call a band, man
    Making a music, abuse it, but you can't do it, ya know
    You call 'em demos, but we ride limos, too
    Whatcha gonna do? Rap is not afraid of you
    Beat is for Sonny Bono, beat is for Yoko Ono
    Run-DMC first said a deejay could be a band
    Stand on its feet, get you out your seat
    Beat is for Eric B. and LL as well, hell
    Wax is for Anthrax, still it can rock bells
    Ever forever, universal, it will sell
    Time for me to exit, Terminator X-it

    Turn it up! Bring the noise!
    Turn it up! Bring the noise!

    From coast to coast, so you can stop being like a comatose
    "Stand, my man? The beat's the same with a boast toast"
    Rock with some pizzazz, it will last. Why you ask?
    Roll with the rock stars, still never get accepted as
    We got to plead the Fifth, we can investigate
    Don't need to wait, get the record straight
    Hey, posse's in effect, got the Flavor, Terminator
    X to sign checks, play to get paid
    We got to check it out down on the avenue
    A magazine or two is dissing me and dissing you

  • Dan Gillespy. from Courtenay Bc.A perfect rap meets metal classic and a big influence on the nu metal scene.
  • Kenny from Remsenburg, NyMotley Crue and 2 Live Crew treid to capatolize on this idea w/ thir own re-working of Dr. Feelgood..Unlike Bring the Noise, It SUCKED!!
  • Luke from Manchester, EnglandI think Edgar was saying it was released on that soundtrack, he wasn't saying that was the original version.
  • J from Nyc, NyEdgar, this song is old, it didn't come on THPS2; orignial PE version came out in the late 80's, this version in the early '90s. I actually love this version, I think the rap/metal thing works well with this track. It's also one of the PE songs that features (perhaps even immortalized) Flavor Flav's infamous, "Yeeeahhhh Booyyyyy!!!"
  • Undercover Brother from Edmonds, WaAnthrax was OK but this did not work for me...PE was so far ahead of all the other artists from this era in speaking out and getting people to think.

    this particular version needs to be forgotten
  • Travis from Blicksburg, VaAaron Lewis from staind and Fred Durst also did a cover song of it.
  • Edgar from Laredo, TxThis song came out on the soundtrack to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2.
  • Luke from Manchester, EnglandThis collaberation can be found on Anthrax's album
    'Attack Of The Killer B's' It's track 2
