    Love ya, Tech. But don’t put your own song on the list. Also, how about Anthrax/PE “Bring The Noise”, Beastie Boys “Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun”, Cypress Hill “Rise Up”, Ice-T “The Girl Tried To Kill Me”, Run DMC “King Of Rock”.

      Right you are Mark, and I would put “‘They’ School” by Dead Prez on the list. Any song that rightly criticism the racism and terrible education for African Americans in public schools is cool by me. PTxS

      True. But the rain is a good choice imo!

    “Juicy” is a terrible song. But anything by NWA, Public Enemy, and Dead Prez can be loved by rockers who listen.

    K.A.B.O.S.H.-Little Pills

      I thought that was a pretty good song. They should have worked that on to the main album instead of the bonus disc.
