Louder Than a Bomb

Gangsta rap was the controversial music of the late Eighties, but Public Enemy were creating waves of its own. “That song was simply about the fact that the FBI was tapping my phone,” Chuck D says of “Louder Than a Bomb.” “My phone would go dead between one and two o’clock in the morning every night, even when I got the phone people to fix it. I was saying, ‘I’m not keeping any secrets because everything I’m saying, I’m saying on the record.’” Even though this was one of Chuck’s favorite PE songs, it’s never been performed live.
