July 23rd – Public Enemy release their ninth album “Revolverlution” on Koch Records, on this day in 2002.
The group made history when for the first time in recorded music history fans were able to participate in the production of the album.
Through an online contest, winners were able to remix such group classics like “Public Enemy No. 1”, “Shut ‘Em Down”, “B-Side Wins Again” and “By The Time I Get To Arizona”, via an internet technology.
The album also featured some new singles like “Gotta Give The Peeps What They Need” and the controversial “Son Of A Bush” as well as some live versions of P.E. classics like “Fight The Power” and “Welcome To The Terrordome.”
