Residents weigh in on ‘Get Bronx’ lyrics

"Get Bronx" is the title of a new song by New York-based hardcore punk band Sick Of It All.



News 12 took to the streets to ask residents what they thought the term "Get Bronx" means.



One resident thought the term meant to be out of character, wild, crazy and agitated. Another resident said it meant that the Bronx is more than what it seems to be.



Craig Ahead, bassist for Sick Of It All for 22 years, says the lyrics are about people becoming active in their community.



"It's just saying people need to be active in their own affairs and not just let things slide and never really pay attention to what's going on around them ... because then, you lose all your say," he says.
