This debut is perhaps the most influential rap album of all time, rap music's sermon on the mount. Although hip hop had been born in the Bronx, NYC, in the late 1970s, Run-DMC steered the function bands genre away from the block-party stylings of The Sugar Hill Gang and Grandmaster Flash to produce a stripped-down, hardcore, rock-influenced sound. The production is hard and minimalist, built on a drum machine, snippets of guitar or synthesiser, and the groundbreaking scratching of Jam Master Jay.

I'll need You Tonight" and the slap-happy bass showcase 'Thug." Key to their success were Tim Newman's videos, heavily rotated on the fledgling MTV, which made ZZ an amusing anachronism amid cars and girls and function bands (note Tom Hunnicutt's iconic cover illustration of a hotrod come to life)."
