Throwback Jam of the Week: 7/1/19

Throw on your Zulu Nation Costume and head to Outer Space as we take you back! Without further ado, here is the 20 Years Before 2000 THROWBACK JAM OF THE WEEK...
Artist: Afrika Bambaataa & The Soul Sonic Force
Song: Planet Rock
Album:  Planet Rock: The Album (1982)
Peak Billboard Hot 100 Position: 48
Bonus Fun Fact: This song was ranked #3 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs Of All-Time". The Washington Squares sing the "Rock It, Don't Stop It" portion of the song. This was done so production could move faster and the Squares could begin their recording session. Breakbeats were created on a Roland TR-808 drum machine.
