ok so i just saw VR last night in atlanta (very awesome show)
right before they went on, the lights went out and this rap song started playing, im pretty sure it was part of the intro to the band, and not just some random song playing while we waited....if im correct in assuming they play this before all of their shows, does anyone know what song it is?
thanks

some NWA song, can't remember which, not really into them. Some of the friends I was with loved it, they knew all the lyrics.

I think its 'Straight outta Compton'

At least thats the one they played in the woodlands, i assume its the same.

You are 100% correct.
Straight Outta Compton by NWA
Of course,the main one singing/rapping is Ice-Cube :)

N.W.A. is one of the very few Rap "bands" that I will listen to. Gotta love their lyrics.

Read an interview a while back...please don't quote me on it!
They chose Straight Outta Compton because if you listen to the actual lyrics....it has a lot of the VR Fuck You attitude!
Guys loved it!
Plus you have to remember that NWA was waaaaaaaaay controversial.
Ice-Cube  & Dr.DRE were the first ones in the rap industry to say FU to the cops as well as anybody else!
Since,VR is from California....I guess they decided to broadcast that love!

Yes,Steven & Robman...you are both correct!
Axl is /was a big fan of NWA....I was surprised that they chose to play that!
California Love with Tupac would have been awesome!

Same here. They were alot more original, possibly because they set the standard for that kind of music, but still

I have seen VR 4 times now and they always play this bad ass rap song before they come out. No, not VR themselves play it but the stage crew plays it with the lights off while the band members get in their positions.

Can anyone please tell me who sings it and what the title is?  It sounds like Ice Cube.

Thanks,
civil

You're right Alice, and civil69 it sounds like Ice Cube because it IS. Ice Cube does the first vocal section in Straight Outta Compton.

He also says his name in the first line.   That kinda gives it away.

edit:  didn't read past this post and see that people were quoting lyrics
