King[s] of Rock

This iconic group was formed in Hollis, Queens, New York City in 1981 and consisted of three members: Joseph “Run” Simmons, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell.

Run DMC was known for their unique style that blended rap and rock music, and they are often credited with popularizing hip-hop in the mainstream music industry. The group’s first single, “It’s Like That,” along with its B-side track “Sucker MCs,” was released in 1983 and quickly became a hit on the charts, peaking at number 15 on the Billboard R&B chart. However, it was their collaboration with rock group Aerosmith on a remake of the classic song “Walk This Way” that really put Run DMC on the map. The song, which was released in 1986, was a massive hit and helped break down barriers between hip-hop and rock music. Aside from their innovative sound, Run DMC was also known for their distinctive fashion sense. They were often seen wearing Adidas tracksuits and sneakers, which became a trademark of their style and influenced fashion trends in the hip-hop community.

Tragedy struck the group in 2002 when Jam Master Jay was shot and killed in a recording studio in Queens. This was a devastating loss for the music industry and the hip-hop community as a whole. Nevertheless, Run DMC’s impact and legacy live on. They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2009 and are considered pioneers in the world of hip-hop music. From their unique sound to their distinctive fashion sense, Run DMC will always remain an iconic part of music history.
