90's Hit Parade #85

Public Enemy w/Anthrax (or Anthrax w/Public Enemy, depending on your fandom) - Bring the Noise

If I were writing this list in January of 2000, this song would be much higher. In fact, in 1991, it would have been impossible for me to imagine that this song would not be in my top 10. Well, as time goes on, the funk metal sound gets more played out, but I still think this is as good an example of the sound as has ever existed. Anthrax start shit off with a pounding, Motorhead-inspired intro, then proceed to back up Chuck and Flav's raps with some seriously heavy body blows of metal. Pity that they couldn't just concentrate on their own strengths and leave the rapping to the professionals, but fuck it, they seem to be enjoying themselves.

Bonus Beat:

Speaking of rap metal, hard to beat this remix.
