    General CommentWho really knows what this song is about, if anything, but it certainly is one of the electronic masterpieces of the 90's.

    The album that it appears on, Music For the Jilted Generation, had an overall theme of youth rebellion against the British government who had passed the Criminal Justice Act of 1994 (read about that elsewhere).

    This song is known, among other things, for its famous shattering glass effects. Based on the samples in this song, as well as the overall mood, and the title of course, I am led to believe that it might be about the government breaking into parties to go after ravers, or perhaps in a more symbolic way it could represent the invasion of authority into the people's domain (in this case, the life of many partygoers at the time).

    As far as the lyrics are concerned, which are only one line, I have no idea what they mean. They are done by Baby D "Casanova" and that's all I know. Either way, this is one of the great electronic songs of its era and has influenced many later works by various artists.

    General Comment2 me it's simply the intro song of Music 4 the Jilted Generation. So it means "Brake and Enter" in the Album.

    General CommentI keep thinking it's "Bring your car to work" - like Prodigy rebelling against public transport.

    ...probably not though.
