Fight the Power" is a song by American hip hop group Public Enemy, released as a single in June 1989 on Motown Records. It was conceived at the request of film director Spike Lee, who sought a musical theme for his 1989 film Do the Right Thing. First issued on the film's 1989 soundtrack, a different version was featured on Public Enemy's 1990 studio album Fear of a Black Planet.

Fight the Power Lyrics: Yet our best trained, best educated, best equipped, best prepared troops refuse to fight. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to say that they would rather switch than fight, W-E-L-O-V. Chuck D said the inspiration for the song came to him as he was flying over Italy during Public Enemy’s Run’s House tour: I wanted to have sorta like the same theme as the original ‘Fight the Power" by the Isley Brothers and fill it in with some kind of modernist views of what our surroundings were at that particular time. He told Keyboard magazine in 1990: ‘Fight the Power’ has, like, 17 samples in the first 10 seconds

Fight The Power Lyrics. Album: Fear Of A Black Planet. 1989 the number another summer (get down) Sound of the funky drummer Music hittin' your heart cause I know you got sould (Brothers and sisters hey) Listen if you're missin' y'all Swingin' while I'm singin' Givin' whatcha gettin' Knowin' what I know While the Black bands sweatin' And the rhythm rhymes rollin' Got to give us what we want Gotta

Fight the Power' has, like, 17 samples in the first ten seconds. For example, there's three different drum loops that make one big drum loop: One is a standard Funkadelic thing, another is a Sly thing, and I think the third one is the Jacksons. Probably Public Enemy's most famous song, this embodies their message of black pride, and along the way takes shots at the white icons Elvis Presley ("Elvis was a hero to most but he never meant s-t to me") and John Wayne. Even Bobby McFerrin couldn't escape their wrath, as Chuck D raps, "Don't Worry Be Happy was a number one jam, damn if I say it you can slap me right here. This militant and confrontational approach was designed to empower the black community and create some controversy along the way, which helped sell a lot of albums.
