    This doesn't just edge the original, it blows it out of the water. Originally released in 1983 and recorded by Afrika Bambaataa and Soulsonic Force, it was grabbed by the scruff of its neck by Rage Against The Machine a little under 20 years later and throttled to within an inch of its life. Superb stuff.



    :laugh:


    And then Rage..
