Great Videos: Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos


Remember when rock went wussy in the late 80s before the grunge revolution saved the day?  During that period of time, I discovered Public Enemy.  My brothers will vouch for my love of this band.  I listened to them every day, learnt every word to every song and prayed at their alter.  It was heavier than heaven.

"Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos" was one of my favourite tracks from It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back and I loved this video.  It was only played during Rap City, but it was worth the wait.  Listen to Chuck D's words, listen to that beat, feel that anger.  This was when Rap mattered.

Here are the other videos covered in this continuing series.
