Though they aren't rock, my favorite genre of music, I absolutely love them. They're as great as AC/DC.
They don't need an example of their greatness. It should already be known around the world.

Perhaps the best group ever.
Every jam we play, we break two needles
There's three of us but we're not the Beatles

Seminal rap group responsible for bringing hip hop into the mainstream. First Rap group ever to go gold, platinum, have a video shown on MTV and have a single go #1.

Group consisted of two MCs - Joseph Simmons (RUN) & Darryl McDaniels (DMC) & one DJ - Jason Mizell (Jam Master Jay.

Slowly faded into obscurity with their more recent efforts (Down with the king & Crown Royale). Had a brief revival in '97 when Jason Nevins remixed "It's Like That" from their first album.

Disbanded since the murder of Jam Master Jay in 2002.
Now Peter Piper picked peppers but Run rocked rhymes
Humpty Dumpty fell down that's his hard time
Jack B. Nimble what nimble and he was quick
But Jam Master cut faster Jack's on Jay's dick
Now Little Bo Peep cold lost her sheep
And Rip van Winkle fell the hell asleep
And Alice chillin somewhere in Wonderland
Jack's servin Jill a bucket in his hand
And Jam Master Jay's making out our sound
The turntables might wobble but they don't fall down

Now Dr. Seuss and Mother Goose both did their thing
But Jam Master's gettin loose and D.M.C.'s the king
Cause he's adult entertainer
Child educator
Jam Master Jay king of the crossfader
He's the better of the best best believe he's the baddest
Perfect timin when I'm climbin I'm a rhymin apparatus
Lot of guts
When he cuts
Girls move their butts
His name is Jay hear the play he must be nuts
And on the mix real quick and I'd like to say
He's not Flash but he's fast and his name is Jay

Jay's like King Midas as I was told
Everything that he touched turned to gold
He's the greatest of the greater get it straight
He's great
Playing fame cause his name is known in every state
His name is Jay
To see him play
Will make you say
God damn that DJ made my day
Like the butcher the baker
The candlestick maker
He's a maker a breaker
And a title taker
Like the little old lady who lived in a shoe
If cuts were kids he would be you
Not lyin y'all he's the best I know
And if I lie my nose will grow
Like a little wooden boy named Pinocchio
And you all know how the story go

Tricks are for kids he plays much gigs
He's a big bad wolf and you're the three pigs
He's a big bad wolf in your neighborhood
Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good

We're Run-D.M.C. got a beef to settle
D's not Hansel he's not Gretel
Jay's a winner
Not a beginner
His pockets get fat others get thinner
Jump on Jay like cows jump moons
People chase Jay like dish and spoon
And like all fairy tales end
You'll see Jay again my friend

The greatest Old School rap group ever. Performed at the time of other greats such as Whodini and Grandmaster Flash. Sadly, they're all dead now and all we have now is vanilla ice, nelly, ice cube, etc. crap. etc.
Whatever happened to sex, drugs and rock n roll. Now all we got is AIDS, crack, and techno...

Whatever happened to Grandmaster Flash and Run DMC. Now all we got is Ja Rule, J-Kwon, and Jay-Z.

Run DMC was one of the most influential rap groups ever. It was extremely popular in the 1980s, and it consisted of emcees Run (Joseph Simmons), DMC (Darryl McDaniels), and the late deejay Jam Master Jay (Jason Mizell). Its genre is old-school rap (rap performed between 1979 and 1993), but the band has also performed rock songs, such as the remix of Aerosmith's "Run This Way." Alas, Jam was brutally murdered back in 2002.
1.) Run DMC is one of the best rap groups around. It is a hell of a lot better than that new-school shit they play on the radio. Who the fuck is Chingy or the Wu-Tang Clan? These new-school artists suck compared to the Kings of Rock.

2.) Jason Mizell is the John Lennon of Run DMC, because some asshole shot him to death.
