Music and lyrics
"Do What I Tell Ya!" criticizes the band Rage Against the Machine, who are well known for expressing anti-corporate, left-wing politics in their lyrics, but are signed with Epic Records, a subsidiary of Sony, a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation. Mike Muir later stated that Rage Against the Machine's guitarist, Tom Morello, provoked the feud by attacking Suicidal Tendencies. The song was written in 4/4, and takes a straight rock music approach, while the rest of the album combines elements of hard rock, funk and punk rock.
