EDITORS’ NOTES

“Hard Times”, “King of Rock”, and “It’s Tricky;" repeat these names to anyone who came of age in the ‘80s and you'll likely be met with an ear to ear grin. With their uniform look, raspy shouted lyrics, and irrepressible Hollis bred arrogance, Run DMC endeared themselves to thousands of young listeners across the world, and with their chart topping success embodied the aspirational impulses of the Hip-Hop generation. 2003’s Greatest Hits wisely focuses on the group's first four groundbreaking albums yet still includes an almost overwhelming amount of classic material. For the uninitiated, hearing all of these groundbreaking, ear-shattering tracks back to back will likely be revelatory. Though casual listeners will remember the chart topping Aerosmith collaboration “Walk This Way” from ‘80s radio playlists, it's under appreciated cuts like the relentless “Beats To The Rhyme” that truly amaze.

i couldent think of a nickname ,

real rap

I hated rap before I found run-dmc. This is what rap should be. Not all that auto-tune crap we have today

I like good beer ,

straight dope

i knew there was a reason why run dmc was the best rap group of the eighties. track after track doesn't sound dated just the essence of good RAP music. take a listen if you've forgot what good rap sounds like.
