As I mentioned in a previous post, the legendary Public Enemy is at Brooklyn Bowl tonight, and I’ve been a Public Enemy fan since the late 1980s but sadly, I was too young to see them at the absolute height of their popularity; however, i’m thrilled to finally catch them live – even if Terminator X and a few others aren’t around. 

in any case, “Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos” off Fear of a Black Planet may be among one of my favorite P.E. songs, as Chuck D manages to tell one of the most frightening and haunting tales of a prison riot you’ll likely to hear in a song.
