"Fight Music", also known in its censored form as "Flight Music", is a hip hop single by the rap group D12 from their debut album Devil's Night. The song features various lyrics about violence and dangerous street fighting except in two verses: Bizarre's, which features various graphic subjects, namely oral sex with his grandmother, and Eminem's, which talks about the youth, how they feel and how they relate with this song and other songs. The song was produced by Dr. Dre. "Fight Music" is also included on the greatest hits disc of Shady Records' 15th anniversary compilation, Shady XV, which was released on November 24, 2014.

Music video[edit]

The beginning of the video features Ice-T and different styles of music, a play on the beginning of the film The Warriors. The quotes, "can you count?" and "can you dig it?" are taken directly from the movie. The cut-scene where the radio DJ speaks is also a reference to The Warriors. The video features cameos by Fat Joe and Obie Trice. There are two versions of the video. One is the explicit version. The explicit version starts with Ice-T talking about the styles of music. However, the beginning where he says "Can you count, suckers?" has been cut. Also, instead of Eminem starting the chorus outside, he starts inside of what seems to be a city bus, with the rest of D12 seen in the background.. The explicit version alters throughout the video. The clean version includes Ice-T yelling "Can you count, suckers?". The clean version also starts with Eminem starting the chorus outside with the rest of D12, instead of inside a bus. Some words have been changed or muted throughout the clean version's audio. Part of the video was shot in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
