King of Rock

Fuck all this talk about the so-called King of Pop.

In 1985, it was all about Run-DMC and The King of Rock!

They called us ill, we're gettin iller,
There's no one chiller
It's not Michael Jackson and this is not "Thriller"

(Sorry for the commercial at the beginning.  Youtube had embedding disabled.  Sigh)


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. DMC stands for Devastating Mic Control!!!

Because they were the kings of rock, and there were none higher? Sucka MCs called them sire? (I totally did that by memory...WITHOUT watching the embed).

Faiqa - I might love you. Given the chance and the appropriate amount of alcohol. On your part, of course.

Avitable said...

I used to love RunDMC.

Water Logged Canine said...

Have you ever listened to Run DMC? Have you ever listened to Run DMC...on Jesus Juice?

It's tricky.

Verdant Earl said...

Avitable - I think we all did.

WLC - "I met this little girly. Her hair was kinda curly. Went to her house and bust her out. I had to leave real early. These girls are really sleazy. All they say is just to please me. Or spend some time to rock a rhyme, I said "It's not that easy"

Here we go...

I think I just did. Tricky.

Let's not mess about here fellas, the only King of rock was surely the late great Jim Morrison.

I don't see a video!
But hey - RunDMC - oh nice!

Verdant Earl said...

Jimmy - I pictured him as more of a bard or wizard something. Wait...Lizard King. Damn, you are right.

Sybil - It's an AOL embedded video because Youtube sucks ass! (sometimes)

Ok without watching, let's see

"Most of my heros don't appear on no stamps"

"Forget oreos eat cool j cookies"
