Hip-hop group Public Enemy originated in Long Island and formed in 1982. Their intense lyrics surrounding the concerns they had for the African-American community and their frustrations with the media made them one of the most important groups in music at the time. "Fight the Power" is still one of the most popular and influential hip-hop songs of all time and VH1 named it number one on their list of the 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs. Rolling Stone placed them at number 44 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. They were 2013 inductees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
