Arguably the production peak of the Bomb Squad and one of Chuck D.'s best rapping performances ever, Public Enemy's "Welcome to the Terrordome" is a complete sonic apocalypse, driven by samples from no less than three James Brown tracks plus the shimmering, paranoid guitar line from the Temptations' "Psychedelic Shack." Recorded for 1990's Fear of a Black Planet, "Welcome to the Terrordome" begins with just a few seconds of horns before launching into an incredibly dense production that lasts most of the track. And from his first words, "I got so much trouble on my mind," Chuck D. admits he's going to speak out on a number of topics. Conjuring raps that are almost as dizzying as the production, Chuck presses the point with dozens of internal rhymes: "Lazer, anastasia, maze ya/Ways to blaze your brain and train ya" or "Sad to say I got sold down the river/Still some quiver when I deliver/Never to say I never knew or had a clue/Word was heard, plus hard on the boulevard/Lies, scandalizin', basin'/Traits of hate who's celebratin' wit Satan?" Even while he's rapping, the Bomb Squad and Terminator X drop countless samples and end the song with the oft-sampled "come on, you can get it-get it-get it" from the underground disco classic "I Got My Mind Made Up" by Instant Funk. Listening to most any Public Enemy track was enough to make you think the revolution was here, but none of their tracks were more musically incendiary than "Welcome to the Terrordome."
