The best Public Enemy post, ever

So, what the fuck am I trying to prove, anyway? Well, really, that ALL of us are entitled to think
what we want to think, are entitled to our opinions no matter what others may think, and in the end, we all end up six feet under ground anyway, ALL of us.......

Public Enemy, for my money, anyway, were about 100x better musically than were Skrewdriver.....as for THIER ideology, I can't say I'm in agreement with a whole lot of it, either....but the point is, they can BOTH co-exist on my CD shelves as musicians who were angry about SOMETHING and atempted to make some music to drive the point home.

Personally I LOVE a lot of the music of Public Enemy, which is a LOT more than I can say for Skrewdriver or Bully Boys......although I sagre with some of the Public Enemy stances and politics, I will say this, that shit ROCKS THE FUCK OUT, to a greater degree than any of the "hate rock" shit of the last couple of days, and, believe you me, I am no "hip hop" fan especially....but Public Enemy brought the goods and I give them credit. As I say I am NO EXPERT on hip-hop, nor do I especially even LIKE it, but I've always enjoyed listening to Public Enemy. Without question they were angry as hell, and their sound was like no other.....dense layers of sounds and samples piled up like thick blankets swirling around Chuck D's booming vocals....."Fight the Power", "Brothers Gonna Work It Out", "Can't Truss It" and many others are outright anthems of their scene.

So what it doing on my rock n roll site? Because, it ROCKS.....hard.....their colaboration with Anthrax "Bring the Noise" is about a tenth of it, check these records out and you'll see what I mean, unique sounding music that compares with NOTHING, thought provoking and challenging on all levels. And, while I certainly don't agree with the political views demonstrated here, anymore than the last couple of days' opinions, I feel EXACTLY the same on their rights to them.....however, musically Public Enemy has it ALL OVER Skrewdriver in my estiamtion.....In particular, I find "Fear of a Black Planet" to be exceptionally well crafted work, but all of these presented here have their strengths.

I understand they have a large discography, I don't have it all by any means, I have their older records which are the only ones with which I am familiar....we'll see if I can find anything else of interest, but for now.....
