    In the case of Public Enemy, "Bring the Noise" and "Rebel Without a Pause" were put out as singles before the album even came out so they were finished before the other tracks on "Nation" were.

    I notice how songs from "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" use samples from both "Rebel Without a Pause" and "Bring the Noise" while both songs were on that album, and "Bring the Noise" was not only sampled more often on the album, but in general on this database, why is that? There are lots of artist's on this database with that one song that has pages and pages of other songs it was sampled in. Besides the Ultimate Breaks and Beats, even rap songs like "La Di Da Di" or "Top Billin" were also sampled by the original artists. Is there something substantial about these songs, or a certain reason why they're used much more often then other songs on their page?

    True but to be fair the reason why PE was able to sample so many songs was because it was before sampling laws. Those albums would cost millions to make today. Rapping over an instrumental is more a matter of cost than non-creativity.

    This is Hip Hop! Public Enemy, Terminator X and the Bomb Squad. Sampled, cut, remixed and made the Bomb! Not just play the whole instrumental version of a song and rap over it like many others.

    There ain't no party like a Liz Lemon party, coz a Liz Lemon party is Mandatory!

    Sorry, I dunno, Ain't no party like a Alkaholik party is my best guess, From Likwit - 1993... sure it's not the first though heh

    Does anyone know who started this: "there ain't no party like a *** *** party"? Sorry to be spamming Public Enemy, but I'm getting the feeling it's these guys?

    Is it just me or is the bassline in "Fight the Power" by Public Enemy the same as in "100 Miles and Runnin'" By N.W.A?
