Product Description

Since the group’s early career in 1982, Public Enemy has been the most musically and politically radical rap group in the country. Their sheer presence was revolutionary: from racially charged lyrics to the iconic b-boy in the crosshairs logo, Chuck D, Flava Flav, and the rest were at the forefront of a changing rap scene. Many of their songs have since become anthems for black communities throughout the world.

Public Enemy: Inside the Terrordome tells the whole story of the group’s prolific career. From the early success of the early eighties, to their influential “Fight the Power,” to their introduction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Tim Grierson’s comprehensive biography details the highs and lows of this innovative group.

Tim Grierson is a music critic whose writing appears in L.A. Weekly, Screen International, Revolver, The Village Voice, Vulture and About.com. He is the author of Blinking Lights & Other Revelations: Story of Eels and Wilco: Sunken Treasure. He teaches criticism and writing at The Writing Pad and is a member of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.
