" Rock Box " is a 1984 hit single by Run – .. It is the third single from their self-titled debut album, originally released through Profile Records, Inc.

"There was no concept of charts and no concept of airplay," says LL Cool J, describing the landscape for Run-DMC's 1986 tour, which featured LL, the Beastie Boys, Whodini and others as openers. That underground status changed two months into the tour, when Run-DMC had a breakout MTV hit with their Aerosmith collaboration "Walk This Way," from their Raising Hell album. "Motherfuckers in the front row started looking like the Ramones and Cyndi Lauper," says DMC of the new white fans who came to check out their shows. "We got a bunch of Madonnas asking for autographs." DMC also noticed that cross-cultural appeal working the other way as a predominantly black audience embraced the tour's beer-spraying opening act, the Beastie Boys, then months away from releasing their debut LP, Licensed to Ill. "The Beasties were crazy," recalls rapper Ecstasy of Whodini. "They created an illusion that they were happy-go-lucky and careless, but they were on top of their shit. They were the white Run-DMC." Competition among the artists was fierce. "I wanted to chain-saw the audience," says LL Cool J, who was 18 years old at the time. Toward the end of the tour, a riot at a show in Long Beach, California, provided fuel for negative media coverage. But Raising Hell' s positive legacy is undeniable. As DMC says today, "When Obama first got elected, all my white friends said, 'That's because of what Run-DMC did.'" .

The beginning words "Run, Run" have been sampled by many artists, including The Pharcyde's "Runnin". Run-. also samples the line in many of their later albums.

And that's it. Nobody is going to be reissuing the group's 1990 album Back From Hell anytime soon, and the group became an old-school signifier, someone for rappers to quote or reference but never hire for features or anything. The group was essentially irrelevant only five years after releasing its first single-- to put that in perspective, Bow Wow has been popular for a longer time. The group was hugely important in changing rap and making it an industry force, but you can't really say they had much influence on the way it sounds today. They removed the flash and gloss of the disco-rap of the Sugar Hill label, and they influenced a young LL Cool J, who influenced Boogie Down Productions and Eric B & Rakim, who influenced the Juice Crew and Public Enemy and NWA, and on and on and on, as rap would undergo sea change after sea change. By the late 90s, much of the music was flashier and glossier than it ever had been in the Sugar Hill era, and any changes that Run-DMC made were changed themselves to the point of being unrecognizable. And so what we have now are four historical documents, each with at least a handful of thrilling moments. And most of those thrilling moments are on Together Forever or other singles compilations, so unless you're a historian or a rich person, save your money.

I want rappers to do better. We have daily conversations about toxic masculinity and feminism on social media and all over the internet. Why is hip hop still lagging behind? I suggest that fans get serious about holding artists accountable for their lyrical content. If you do not like the content of a rapper’s songs, do not support that artist. And, do not make excuses because the songs are catchy or popular. We are caught in a vicious cycle where misogyny in society feeds misogyny in rap lyrics which then in turn feeds back into greater society’s view of women. We can break the cycle by holding everyone in our lives accountable, including rappers.

They were almost done with the album, but Rubin thought that it needed an element that would appeal to rock fans as well. This spurred the lead single " Walk This Way ", a cover of the classic hard rock song by Aerosmith . The original intention was to just rap over a sample of the song, but Rubin and Jay insisted on doing a complete cover version . Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry were called to join Run-DMC in the studio to add vocals and lead guitar, respectively. The song and video became one of the biggest hits of the 1980s, reaching number four on the Hot 100, and cemented Run-DMC's crossover status. It also resurrected Aerosmith's career. [13] The single " My Adidas " led to the group signing a $ million endorsement deal with athletic apparel brand Adidas. Adidas formed a long-term relationship with Run-DMC and hip hop. [14]
