2. Run DMC, Walk This Way. Rock radio needs to figure out how to embrace some hip-hop. I’m not saying classic rock radio should be playing P.M. Dawn’s Set Adrift On Memory Bliss , Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back or Naughty By Nature’s O.P.P. Because they don’t rock. But Walk This Way does. Run DMC’s cover even has an edge, some swagger that Aerosmith’s original lacks. Walk This Way should be the first, but not the only. Try the Public Enemy-Anthrax collaboration Bring the Noise. Onyx’s Slam. And I haven’t even mentioned the words “Kid Rock” yet. Granted, this could lead down the dark path to Limp Bizkit and its unfortunate rock-rap progeny. But it needs to be explored.
