80's Jams #76: Public Enemy "Fight The Power" (1989)

First released on the soundtrack for the film Do the Right Thing, an extended version was released in 1990 on Public Enemy's third album, Fear of a Black Planet. The song has largely served as the political statement of purpose for the group, and is their biggest single. "Fight the Power" was recently ranked #1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop, further demonstrating the impact of the song. -- Wikipedia
