P.O.D. - Boom


[Verse 1]
I never knew that a kid like me
Could take his mic around the world and flash the big SD
And rock the masses, from Madrid to Calabasas
Tijuana, Mexico, bootleg demos in Tokyo
You say they know me though, 'cause I be puttin' in work
Commit my life to rebirth, well respected, 'cause that's my word
I'm sure yo heard, 'bout a new sound goin' 'round
She might have left my hood, but she was born in my town

You didn't know, thought we was new on the scene
Well, it's alright! It's alright!
I know you know, I see you smilin' at me
Well, it's alright! It's alright!

Boom! Here comes the Boom!
Ready or not, here comes the boys from the South
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
Ready or not, how you like me now? I say:

[Verse 2]
We rep the South, so what you talkin' 'bout?
I'm not runnin' off my mouth, I know this without a doubt
'Cause if you know these streets, then these streets know you
When it's time to handle business, then you know what to do
Me and my crew, we stay true, old school or new
Many were called, but the chosen are few (we are few)
We rise to the top, what you want? Just in case you forgot
Rush the stage, grab my mic, show me what you got

"Boom" is a song by American rock band P.O.D. It was released in May 2002 as the third single from their second major label studio album Satellite. While it did not chart as well as the album's previous singles, the song has appeared significantly in film and television. "Boom (The Crystal Method remix)" was included on the remix album Community Service and as a bonus track on the special edition re-release of Satellite available August 27, 2002. A limited edition, gatefold picture disc of the single was also available in the UK. Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, "Boom" was the only P.O.D. song included on the list of songs deemed inappropriate by Clear Channel Communications. The single's release followed a highly successful yet dark, brooding tone in "Youth of the Nation". Guitarist Marcos Curiel stated, We wanted to go back to the spirit we had with 'Alive' and have a song that encourages people to be happy and thankful that they're alive... We wanted to say, 'Let's not forget how to have fun this time.' 'Boom' is just raw, in your face. When we play it live, the crowd just goes nuts. Fists are in the air and the pit's going.
