A) 5-10 top favorite bands with a brief description:
the beatles- not a big fan of their 3 minute pop songs but the white album and abbey road. musical geniusess that werent afraid to take chances in the studio.
led zeppelin- mixed rock and blues to create a sound their own. heavy shit, brah!

wu tang clan- by far the best rap group ever. they totally changed the game.
hot water music- wont even get into it.

abbey road- the beatles. i think side b is the best beatles ever. songs flow amazingly well together.

i never said some of the artists in wu tang weren't good. what's your point? that's like you saying if like the police that i have to like sting cuz he was in the police. gza was badass. rza has done some amazing work. wu tang is overrated.

bah! ak! guh!? that's what i said, dummy. i said not to state opinion as if they are a fact. that was my whole point, tard. now you've reduced me to name calling cuz you won't listen. you said, "by far" the greatest rap group ever...you didn't say, "i think" or "in my opinion" or "possibly one of the..." you produced it as factual information that anyone with half a brain should know.

actual;ly you're right, or wrong...i'd definetly put PE in there. and i think i uincluded nas in the second part...if not YES. why is saying public enemy was good bullshit? they changed a lot more in rap than wu tang...and did a hell of a lot more postive shit than wu tang. wu tang is all about novelty value...they're fucking goofy.

i'd say it's the other way around though for run dmc...i think they are a piece of shit that noone who loves rap can actually enjoy. i mena, if you were alive and listening to rap music in the 80s, than yes...i can understand the nostalgic factor. but jesus...they really suck. and they're lame as shit.

as far as the distinction between rap "groups" and rap "artists"... *pyut*..that's the sound i made while mock-jerking with one hand.

all that make a rap group a group is 2 or more musicians. or one guy waving a soldier rag behind a singer. it's overrated. every rapper is a rap group unless he did every single thing himself.

public enemy was more about that...and they weren't "mad at whites" if you read their lyrics. that's a general statement...they hated racism in every form of the word. but they weren't angry at whites by any means, they were incredibly pro reducing racial barriers, interracial relationships, etc. public enemy was hardly mainstream...they made it big for a while, but they never really hit mainstream or stayed in the light too long.

to conclude...PE never made a kung-fu music video with fred durst...wasn't that that nigger method man?..the same guy who now has a new show on fox and a list of horrible movies.

it turned into exactly that when you brought up the opinion that public enemy was viewd as a group of scary black men angry at whites...did you forget about that?

bringing method man out of wu tang is the same as bringing flava flav out of PE. he wore big jewelry and hats...yes. as did nearly every 80s musician have some sort of a gimmick. that doesn't mean PE is a novelty, just that they had a gimmick-guy. are you saying that elton john was a novelty? or was he just a great musician with a gimmick? outkast? gimmick-credible...but still great musicians who had some of the greatest albums rap ever saw. i don't know how you intend to prove that flava flav is more of a novelty item than wu tang..i'd say they're about equal at best. i guess i just don't see how PE was a novelty group besides suggesting that FF was silly.
