"Mic Check" is the third single by British Grindie band Hadouken! to be released from their second studio album, For the Masses.

Background[edit]

The song was originally going to contain a sample from Double 99's RIP Groove, however due to clearance issues, the sample was removed to prevent delays in the release of the album. When the sample was cleared for use, Mic Check was announced as a single. There are three versions of the song; the album version, the radio edit, which is exactly the same as the album version but with the sample reinstated, and a remix which contains the sample and is a heavier, dancier version of the song.
