Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments A slight change to the routine this week folks. On Sunday I will be off getting my head melted at the Walpurgis Festival in Galway, so I won't even be contemplating closing the noms. But, I should be back by Monday afternoon so we'll let the noms run till then.

I have no idea how this one will go, any hip-hop fans out there? If so, you'll be delighted to know that this band allegedly have a bucket load of releases so you should be able to find a stonker of a song for us.

Let's have them then, the best of Public Enemy, along with a youtube (if possible) link to prove it.

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments So on double checking, Tech is 100% correct, TheFoe did withdraw this nom, I didn't check the latest post on the noms page.

So the question now is, do you want to continue with this one, or should we scrub it and go on to the next nom?

Much as I dislike this band, I vote for keeping it going now that we have a few noms in, but what does everyone else think?


message 9: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15752 comments Keep it going I reckon.


message 10: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2159 comments Sorry for messing everyone about. I withdrew the artist as I didn't want to participate in the Favourites artist rounds anymore. I'll put up a nomination later.


message 11: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2159 comments I know hip hop doesn't go down too well on the music forum, so thanks to everyone who have nominated so far.

theDuke | 5784 comments Well..not being a fan of hip hop, I struggled to find a nom, but then (to my surprise) found this track, which is used for the C4 TV show The Last Leg, a show I watch regularly, which has answered another mystery, as I always wanted to know who performed it! Quite obvious now, having heard the lyrics! Which brings me to query, why do hip hop bands regularly quote themselves so often, in their songs? Smacks of egotism to me! lol!

Anyhoo.....here's my nom...

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments Back just a little bit later from my weekend away that I had thought I would be, but I survived it somehow or other, so back to business.

A reasonable enough 11 noms give us the 4 vote scoring system. Despite the late start, I am going to have ot keep the schedule of Thursday finishing, as you may have expected, more gigs coming up this weekend.

Here's the playlist:

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments I'm not very keen either - and so I'm voting in order of the ones that I managed to stay focussed on the most when it came to listening all the way through the whole track ;o> ...

message 25: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments There we go then - not sure that we have garnered any more fans for Pubic Enemy going by this, but at least we have a clear winner.

Shut 'em Down gives Brass neck the top spot, followed closely by Val's nom, By The Time I Get To Arizona. Joining them on the podium, suzysunshine with Welcome To The Terrordome.

Once more, apologies for messing things up by not noticing this nom was withdrawn, but no harm done.


message 26: by suzysunshine7 (new)

suzysunshine7 | 14594 comments YAYYY!!! - Congratulations Mr B! ... x

And well nominated Val and ... ERRR? - me! - LOL!!! ... x x ;o>

Well, I actually appreciated the challenge of contributing to this one. I have now explored and discovered that it is definitely not a Band that appeals to me - which is something that I did not know before - so I'm glad that we did it! ;o>


message 27: by theDuke (last edited May 11, 2018 09:47AM) (new)

theDuke | 5784 comments Well done to all the winners.

I would like to point out..that it's rare that I'm not able to vote due to the chosen artist, but as Suzy says, I appreciate that Nick did initially nominate this band, and although hip hop isn't a music genre that I follow, at least I now know who performed the theme music to The Last Leg! :)

Another mystery solved! :-)


message 28: by Val (new)

Val H. | 15752 comments Hip hop isn't my chosen genre of music but I'm still glad we did this as I think we can all benefit from being exposed to music that we tend to shut ourselves off from. It's a form of education; it shouldn't be enough just to say "I don't like rap, country, jazz, blues, house, etc". We should test ourselves every so often even if the end result is the same. Also, we need to treat our fellow nominators with respect and if that is someone's chosen genre, then give it a fair go even if you do wind up abstaining or only voting for one or two.


message 29: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2159 comments Well done to the winners and thanks a lot to everyone who either nominated or voted. I know hip hop/ rap, whatever you want to call it, isn't everyone's cup of tea so was quite pleased at the amount of nominations.


message 30: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments yo! bum rush the winners! and wisdom from the 'hood, val! i have a fair bit of rap (now, now!) and hip hop amongst my rekkids, bought when it was fresh and free of rope gold chains and huge white automobiles. likes of schooly d, early llcoolj, grandmaster flash, davy d, steinski, and the mighty beasties, etc. most of it got old quick, but public enemy kept it street (and big clocks (now, now!))
