The self-titled studio album of the American hip hop band Run-DMC was also their debut album. When "Run-DMC" was released in 1984, it showed a harder and more aggressive form of hip hop and was groundbreaking and innovative in its time.
Run-DMC had the same kind of effect on the hip-hop generation as the Beatles had on the rock generation. The sparse beats and aggressive rhymes were in stark contrast to the light and funky sounds that were popular in hip hop at the time.
With the album, the band is considered seminal to the New School Hip Hop movement of the early 1980s. Run-DMC was the first rap combo to achieve gold status with an album. "Run-DMC" was re-released in 2005 in a "Deluxe Edition" including four bonus tracks, which can also be found on this release.
