Chuck D joined Anthrax on stage to perform “Bring The Noise”.
Rapper Public Enemy joined the metal band last Friday (July 29) at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles after Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian announced the collaboration to fans.
“Imagine you can scream so loud you can outwit Chuck D on this stage,” Ian shouted into the microphone. “Let me ask you again Los Angeles … can you bring the noise?”

Bring The Noise” was originally released by Public Enemy in 1987 and was the lead single from their second album, “It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back” (1988).
Anthrax covered the song in 1991 and included Chuck’s vocals in their performance. As Consequence suggests, the version is one of the original rap-metal songs.
The band recently embarked on a North American tour with Black Label Society, which will conclude on August 28 in Philadelphia.
Earlier this year, Ian and his 10-year-old son Revel paid tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins by covering three of the group’s songs.
In a short video posted on Ian’s Instagram account, he and his son play parts of ‘Low’, ‘Stacked Actors’ and ‘Run’, with Scott on guitar and Revel on drums.
“We’ve been playing our favorite Foos all week,” Ian wrote in the caption of the video. “Heal our hearts with the power of rock. We love you Taylor and Dave and Pat and Chris and Nate and Rami.”
