Break out the Kangols, rope chains, and Adidas, because Run-DMC are in the house with GREATEST HITS. Still busting out rhymes when most of their contemporaries had long ago left the world of rap, these Queens natives take a quick look back with this collection overflowing with hip-hop milestones. Employing spare beats and metal-derived samples on early smashes like "It's Like That" and "Rock Box," Run-DMC was one of the first rap crews to crash the R&B charts. From there, this talented trio soon appeared in movies like KRUSH GROOVE with song in tow ("Sucker M.C.'s [Krush Groove 1]"), started influencing fashion ("My Adidas"), and smashed the line between rock & roll and rap with help from Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry ("Walk This Way"). Other notable nuggets sprinkled throughout this collection are hits like "You Be Illin'", "It's Tricky," "Peter Piper," and of course, "King Of Rock." There's also Run-DMC covering the Monkees ("Mary Mary"), putting their stamp on the holidays ("Christmas In Hollis"), and making a massive early-'90s comeback ("Down With The King").
