Public Enemy - Bring The Noise 12" Single (1987)

Classic right here but you already know that. In my opinion this is one of the most important songs ever recorded. This was the track that launched The Bomb Squad's multi-layered noise on a world in need of beautiful chaos on wax. I could be wrong but I'm sure this dropped before Rebel Without A Pause which would be the next runner-up for supreme sonic assault on the masses in the work of Public Enemy. Either way I was extremely happy with both when they dropped and my life's purpose was complete at that moment in time - this is where I feel hip-hop can contribute to the spiritual path as well as the ego's - both tracks are now part of my energetic matrix and make me that much stronger in spirit. No shit. Originally released on the soundtrack for the film Less Than Zero, and as a 12 inch, here is where the B-Side doesn't win with a slightly altered version of Sophisticated Bitch but actually it's one of my favorite PE joints from their debut with sweet guitar by Bill Stephney & Vernon Reid from Living Colour. Enjoy!!

Somehow I have two different versions of this single so I compiled them into one zip but kept the folders separate. One is a limited edition release that includes Rebel Without A Pause.

01 - Bring The Noise (No Noise Version)
02 - Bring The Noise (No Noise Instrumental)
03 - Bring The Noise (No Noise Acappella)
04 - Sophisticated (Bitch)
05 - Sophisticated (Bitch) (Instrumental)

01 - Rebel Without A Pause (Vocal Mix)
02 - Rebel Without A Pause (Instrumental)
03 - Bring The Noise
04 - Sophisticated Bitch

actually...this dropped after Rebel. Rebel dropped in summer of 86. Noise came out in 87 on the Less Than Zero soundtrack. Both classic joints

Mmmm Rebel Without a Pause definitely did not drop in 86. I remember when all the radio DJ's started playing it and it was the summer (or fall?) of 87. Just found out that the Bring The Noise single dropped in Oct/Nov of 87 so you're right about Rebel coming out first.

Anybody got the original 12" of Bring the Noise with the Black Flames on the B side? I had it years ago. It was a promo 12" for the movie Less Than Zero. It had a slightly different sound than the album version that most of us hear.

I can't thank you enough for this.

Played this 12" to death when I got it, 'Noise' was the most incredibly powerful thing I'd ever heard... and then I was totally blown away by 'sophisticated' on the b-side of this single because those guitar solos were something else. Total Def Jam madness!
Recently I felt like I wanted to hear that "sophisticated" b-side version again gut it's not on any CDs. I suppose it's probably obvious why PE don't really do "Sophisticated" these days. I don't like the 'bitch' part either but the guitars!!! Never better than here.

Peace out!
