Default Emergency alert system

I need help finding this song that starts with the emergency alert system. It was in the mid 90's. Not really rap or hip hop but had a good beat. Maybe alternative. The edge of alternative music. Kind of like how Everclear sounds. After the alert sound, the guy would sing something like "tried to tell ya". I hope someone can help me here. I have only heard the song twice in 1996 or 1997 and then it disappeared from the radio. It might be older but I'm not sure.

The only 90s song that jumps to my mind that had alarm sounds in it is 666's Alarma.

Thanks for the reply. Nope, it's not that one unfortunately. I can't believe this song is so hard to find. I have been trying for years to find it and it's like the song disappeared from the planet. Maybe someone, someday will chime in with the song.

Could it be Future Sound of London's We Have Explosive?

That's kinda alarm system-ish.

Thanks for trying that one tore. Not it, but the song I'm looking for definatly has the emergency alert system beginning. If you go to YouTube and type in emergency alert system sound, the first 10 seconds of it is in the song. The buzz sound, not the higher pitch beep.
