On This Day: Run DMC Breaks Billboard Charts With ‘It’s Like That’

On this day in 1983, Run DMC’s “It’s Like That” peaked at 15 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B Singles”. It was the debut single that put the group on path to being one of the best groups in Hip Hop.

“It’s Like that” was just a cassette single at first. Its success later put the single on RUN D.M.C’s self-titled album. The song has stood the test of time, appearing in video games like Grand Theft Auto and Scarface. Jason Nevins even remixed the song, adding a dance beat to it.

Run DMC’s “King of Rock” Turns 33 Today

Happy birthday, “King of Rock”. You are officially 31 today, and still deemed a classic album to this day.

The album Run DMC produced in 1985 brought you great hits like “Can You Rock It Like This”, “Jam Master Jammin”, and of course “King Of Rock”. I still know the lyrics to this day:

I’m the king of rock, there is none higher
Sucka MC’s should call me sire
To burn my kingdom you must use fire
I won’t stop rocking until I retire

What was your favorite track from this album?
