Public Enemy: "Fight the Power" 

Lee personally recruited Public Enemy to record this hip hop anthem for his hit 1989 film Do the Right Thing. When directing the music video, he captured the spirit of hip hop's late '80s social awakening by making the video one part political rally (with P.E. as leaders) and one part street performance.
