Public Enemy - Harder Than You Think

Public Enemy is an American hip hop group that came from the neighborhoods of Long Island with their hearts in the right place and clenched fists that whitened in the air. Chuck D and Flavor Flav planted the seed for one of the hip-hop worlds absolutes. Together with Professor Griff, Terminator X and The Bomb Squad, they have created history that is completely submerged in revolution, anger and awareness.

From the first seconds of "You're Gonna Get Yours" from their debut album "Yo! Bum Rush The Show, "which was a brutal kiss in both the stomach and the head, it was understood that Public Enemy was the future then and there, here and now. Nothing else could disprove it. Nothing else was even more evident through the "It Takes A Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back" and "Fear of a Black Planet". The rest is history, as told again and again by new generations of fans who discover one of the world's most important bands.

The year is now 2013 and Public Enemy is entering the world of Way Out West. Our own reactions over this, small laughters, wondering whether it is true or not, and an intense desire to have a sweaty experience to "Fight The Power", may stand as witnesses how important they still are. Public Enemy forever!

Todays tune "Harder Than You Think", is the first single from Public Enemy's 20th anniversary album How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul? released in 2007.

It was produced by Gary G-Wiz. The song attained popularity in summer 2012 when it was chosen as the theme tune to the 2012 Paralympic Games coverage on Channel 4 in the UK, and became Public Enemy's highest-charting single on the UK Singles Chart in August 2012. The track samples extensively from Shirley Bassey's 1972 track Jezahel as well as their own 1987 track Public Enemy No. 1.
