Best Run-DMC albums:

1. Raising Hell
2. Tougher Than Leather
3. Run-DMC
4. King of Rock
~
5. Back From Hell
6. Down With the King
7. Crown Royal

The first four albums are great, but their later stuff just isn't. They tried to be like everyone else and it hurt them. Also, Crown Royal isn't even really a proper album since DMC is barely on it and it's filled with (really dated) guest stars that make it sound out of sync with the rest of their stuff. But those first four albums? So great. I can listen to them over and over and never get bored.

It should be noted that I like Tougher Than Leather WAY more than most people. On some days I might even consider it their best album. Run's House is the best hip hop single of all-time, in my opinion.

RIP Leonard Cohen

Sir, do you have any Warrants?

The Harvard Library has begun archiving important hip-hop records. The first 4 to be inducted are:

-A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory
-Nas' Illmatic
-The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
-Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Buttefly

A great first selection, IMO.

Excellent picks, though I unfortunately haven't really been able to get into Kendrick. Would love to see them induct Ice Cube's Death Certificate, The Coup's Steal This Album, Jurassic 5's Power In Numbers, Wu-Tang's Enter The 36 Chambers, and Public Enemy's Fear of a Black Planet (among many others) in the future.

Those all seem pretty likely, with as many albums are being planned to be nominated.

RIP Chris Cornell.

What the fuck? He looked like he was in great health the last I saw him. I was not expecting him to pass any time soon.

Aw man, RIP. I loved Soundgarden in high school and his Bond theme is still my all-time favorite.

He also killed himself. Lot of the old grunge guys really not doing too well these days.

Shame.

Finding out that it was suicide really hurts. He seemed like such a good guy from what I know about him.

It was really shocking and unexpected to hear about it. I never got to see Soundgarden perform live as well so that's another band along with Type O Negative I love that I'll never see live. The grunge dynasty is almost gone. Once King Buzzo and Eddie Vedder go, it's over.
