If global warming is real then how come I just felt this chill down my spine?

And an Anthrax [metal] version. Not technically a cover, since Public Enemy participated for the vocals:

  this is super popular on the local college station.  It's catchy though I am not sure what it does differently than any of the other power metal bands of the last 30 years.  For some reason it broke though.
I disavow anyone in the movement involved in any illegal,unethical, sexist, or racist behavior. However, I don't have the energy or time to investigate each person and case, and a lack of individual disavowals for each incident should not be construed as condoning such behavior.

I meet Chuck D in 91 on the public enemy/anthrax tour. Primus opened up.  It was a pretty small venue in DC, Chuck was just walking around talking to people signing autographs. Great, great show. I was still in high school and very glad I got to see it. That show also turned me on to Primus. I had heard of them, but seeing them live just blew me away.

Not bad, but I wouldn't say I was hooked. Also, I don't understand why this is considered power metal: the tempo is not nearly fast enough, and it sounds more like folk metal, especially with the violins.

Hadn't seen that one. It is not available in Apple Music, neither version of the song. It is actually Staind featuring Fred Durst.

Quote from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bring_the_Noise
The song's lyrics, most of which are delivered by Chuck D with interjections from Flavor Flav, include boasts of Public Enemy's prowess, an endorsement of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, retorts to unspecified critics, and arguments for rap as a legitimate musical genre on par with rock. The lyrics also have a notable metrical complexity, making extensive use of meters like dactylic hexameter. The title phrase appears in the chorus. The song includes several shout-outs to artists like Run–D.M.C., Eric B, LL Cool J and, unusually for a rap group, Yoko Ono and thrash metal band Anthrax, allegedly because Chuck D was flattered about Scott Ian wearing Public Enemy shirts while performing Anthrax gigs. Anthrax later collaborated with Chuck D to cover the song

...

The alternative metal band Staind covered "Bring the Noise" with Limp Bizkit vocalist Fred Durst on the Take a Bite Outta Rhyme: A Rock Tribute to Rap 2000 compilation album. This version also appeared on the advance version of their 1999 album Dysfunction.

The lyrics aren't about dragons but they are about wherewolves, so I think it's close.

new APC. I haven't listened to them for awhile but may have to check out the new album. Still more of a tool fan but like the soundscapes APC builds. Love the Hitchhikers guide ref in the title.

Stumbled across this and had to share. Recommend watching in full screen.
