c’mon Salamiguy, everybody’s heard "walk this way" before!December 14, 2001 at 12:30 am #66865
Don’t know about ya’ll, but I am the King of Rock and there is none higher….
That album was a monster. Sets the precedent for everything produced in rap since. Very hard to top.
Tom… Hoping also for a Fat Boys Reunion. Need a new Human Beat Box though

Malcom-I don`t understand the question,do you mean if I remember when Run DMC were the kings of rap?yeah,I do.Like Tom said that album was very influential,I remember some friends I were hanging around with,one of them bought it,we used to walk around town with a blaster playing it.
It was the first rap song I heard really,that Grandmaster Flash song I did`nt hear till years later,I usually think of that being the first rap song sorta. Louis Jordan was rapping back in the 1940`s,Robert Johnson`s "They`re Red Hot" had a rap in it,it`s from 1936!December 14, 2001 at 10:21 pm #66867
i said a hip hop the hippie the hippie

to the rhythm of the boogie, the beat
(from the first ‘real’ rap song den Buck remembers, and that was very pre Run DMC!)December 14, 2001 at 10:31 pm #66868

so which song is it??December 14, 2001 at 10:55 pm #66869
The Human Beatbox died in the 90’s some time, like to say 96-98 maybe. He was the real big guy who did all the mouth noises.
I think den buck is talking about the Sugarhill Gang, or maybe the Furious Five. My memory tells me that the Fat Boys were direct descendants of the Sugarhill Gang, who are widely acknowledged as the first labeled "rap" act.December 14, 2001 at 10:55 pm #66870

Rapper’s Delight by the Sugarhill Gang (1979)
….den Buck and a couple of friends ‘rap’ it a couple of times a year (mostly when they are quite drunk, but I think stories like that belong in another thread….)

For those who missed the point, is Walk this Way better before or after Run DMC redid it. By saying "post" you mean you like the Run DMC version, "Pre" indicates a version without the Run DMC influence. I meant to post this as a poll, but it seems we lost our polling powers while my back was turned. Oh well, at least I set something interesting off.December 16, 2001 at 1:01 am #66873
….didn’t even know it was an Aerosmith original before Run DMC ‘redid’ it, Aerosmith was one of those bands that were big in the US of A when there were quite a lot of much more exciting things going everywhere else (and in America as welll….)
somehow I think Run DMC is to blame for Aerosmith still being around today!

Aw come on, Alison, everybody loves Aerosmith, at least before the proclaimed themselves to be "America’s Greatest Rock Band"
