    That track is “You’re Gonna Get Yours” off Yo! Bumrush The Show, their first album.


    No cop gotta a right to call me a punk
    Take this ticket – go to hell and stick it
    Put me on a kick butt – line up, times up
    This government needs a tune up
    I don’t know what’s happenin’ – what’s up
    Gun in my chest – I’m under arrest

    /PE fan from waaay back.

    Also, “Rebel Without a Pause” is from It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back.

      Brett, thanks! I was actually watching/listening to both clips, and goofed and inserted the wrong embed code into this post. I’ve corrected that, you should be seeing/hearing the correct track now. Thanks for catching that.

    “Beepers connect the players to big time deals, with all of this technology who needs to steal….? Just live a life of leisure every night and day and your living proof that crime does pay…your life is dangerous and reckless, you’re eatin’ flyguys and girls for breakfast, you’re a titan of a nuclear age, your muscles flex with an uzi or 12 gauge….”

    and that’s just from memory bitches!!

    No problemo, Xeni. I get to catch TWO killer PE tracks on BB in one day? I’m ok with that.

    GF’s definitely right: New Yorkers didn’t want the Iraq war.
    And yet, across the Hudson, the Red States all voted to re-elect Bush.
    Why is that?
