In the ladscape of modern music, it is impossible to ignore the effect and influence that hip hop pioneers Run-DMC had on the music industry.
Bringing rock guitars into the mix of beats, they brought rap from the streets of Hollis Queens to the world wide stage..opening up hip hop music to an all new audience and influencing all who came after them.

The 6 part AMC docu-series "Hip Hop: The Songs That Shook America" looks at their influential single "Rock Box"...and we had the chance to talk to our good friend Darryl "DMC" McDaniels about the legancy of his group, it's influence on music, and much much more.
