100 Records That Shook The World, #7

Walk This Way

Run-DMC feat. Aerosmith

Well well well. Whatever next. Rap meets metal. Well, this combination of genres is pretty common these days, but this is the one that not only started it all, but the one that took rap from being just a flash-in-the-pan fad to another level. Simple concept really - take a well-known Aerosmith song, sample it, mix in hip-hop beats and shouty rappers, then get Aerosmith to sing it with you, along with the accompanying hi-larious video, and you have a hit, gentlemen. Revived Aerosmith's flagging career and bolstered their own career at the same time. Everybody wins. Instant classic. Rap rock is born.
