"S.C.O.M." is the fifth track on Fort Minor's We Major mixtape.

Background

"S.C.O.M." features Ryu of Styles of Beyond and Celph Titled and production by Juelz Santana.

Mike Shinoda is not on vocals on this song, but is shouted out in the beginning by Ryu, when he says, "Uh, Shinoda. That's right. Ryu, Celph Titled, Demigodz, Dipset, Juelz Santana, and of course Fort Minor, let's go" before the guests spell out "F M, D E M I G O D Z, D I P S E T, S O B, G's" as the "chorus." Dipset is the nickname of the New York hip hop group The Diplomats, of which Juelz Santana is a member.

"S.C.O.M." takes its title and main guitar from "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Guns N' Roses. In 2001, Linkin Park would sometimes cover part of the song, at varying lengths, for fun before "One Step Closer".

At the end of the song, there is a scratch/rewind effect by DJ Green Lantern, who was the host of the mixtape.

A longer version of the song was released on DJ Green Lantern's We Major EP "street" release on vinyl which contains full versions of "Spraypaint & Inkpens", "Nobody's Listening (Green Remix)", "S.C.O.M.", and "There They Go (Green Remix)". It was also released on the S.C.O.M. / Dolla / Get It / Spray Paint + Ink Pens promo vinyl by Warner Bros. in 2006, and by Apathy on the four disc compilation The Gatalog: A Collection Of Chaos in 2006.
