Civics Lessons: Fight the Power

Public Enemy: Fight the Power


There are times when being a good citizen means rallying behind our leaders and our government to accomplish goals that benefit us all as a nation.

Other times... well... that's where Public Enemy comes in. "Fight the Power" was voted the "Best Single" of 1989 by the Pazz and Jop Critics Poll and the number one hip-hop song of all time by VH1. Outside of that, there isn't much I could say about this song that wasn't said in this article from 2002.

And just for fun... here's a cover of "Fight the Power" from The Barenaked Ladies.
