    Public Enemy is one of the most influential rap acts of all time. Not much of that can be attributed to Flav ... he was kind of the "light side" or clown of the group. But his colorful antics certainly didn't hurt thier success.

    People can scoff at rap music (I am not a huge fan), but it has been the driving force of the music industry for over a decade now. It truly is the "rock and roll" of this generation. So with that in mind, Public Enemy is sort of equal to [insert influential rock band of the 60's here]. It's the reason why so many white people were attracted to this group ... they were controversial, and they were superior to just about everything out there (They became popular in 87-88... when 'hair bands' were at their 'glorious' height)

    Not really. Chuck D even said so himself:

    I, personally, respect Public Enemy for being a significant and seminal force in rap music--and by that, I don't mean the "bling bling where my ho'z at" rap, but politically-charged, provocative, and important rap. I don't agree with every opinion they expressed in their music, but I feel it was an authentic reflection of their experience, and much more powerful than the "booties in da club" crap that's so popular nowadays.

    That said, I think this show has really made me more fond of Flavor Flav's "softer side." I was really impressed by how well he connected with the kids in the "Battle of the Bands" episode, and then in the past few episodes I've seen, I really feel sympathetic towards him in regards to the whole Gitte debacle. I've seen a new side of him, and I am rather fond of what I've seen.

    This is probably a dumb question but I am going to ask it anyway. Flav seems to refer to everyone as G. When the surfers were teaching him to surf, he said "G, do you want Flavor Flav to surf?" What does G mean? I guess I am not very hip.

    I was very impressed with Flavor Flav's musical abilities highlighted in this episode. He can play drums, keyboards, bass and we all know he can rock the hell out of a mic. I think Dave was right in saying he thinks Flav should have been the producer and not Jordan. Jordan even admitted he didnt even know what chords he was playing, which as a song writer can be essential when composing other parts, harmonies, melodies etc. Not to mention that Public Enemy's musical output of the late eighties and early nineties has a lot more credibility than a couple of cardboard cutout pop albums by NKOTB.
