Break it Down

"Break it Down" is a song written and performed by artist Chris Warren. It was written and serves as the entrance theme music for the World Wrestling Entertainment/Federation stable D-Generation X which debuted in late 1997. "Break it Down" has been performed at a number of major pay-per-view events, most notably SummerSlam 1998 and WrestleMania XIV.

As with much of Warren's work, the song's instrument and vocal style are both strikingly similar to Rage Against the Machine. Its introduction builds with an quick, ominous bass line and thumping of the bass drum. Verse lyrics are rapped in quick succession, identical to Zack de la Rocha's style, before entering a heavy, grooving chorus that features a guitar melody reminiscent of Tom Morello and the repeated scream of "D-Generation X!"

A remix entitled "The Kings" debuted in 2000. This is a 3 minute and 49 version written and performed by the rap group Run D.M.C. along with Chris Warren. A music video was filmed for "The Kings" and directed by David Sahadi who worked in video production for WWE.
