Music Documentary: How N.W.A’s ‘FUCK THE POLICE’ shut DOWN TRIPLE J (1990) | Hip Hop, Rap, Rock


Soul of Sydney Music Documentary:

How N.W.A‘s ‘FUCK THE POLICE‘ shut DOWN TRIPLE J (1990)

Censorship and NWA’s Fuck the Police

triple j has always had a tradition of rejecting censorship. We refuse to edit the music and like to play it the way the artist intended.

Trawling back through triple j playlists is a good indication of what has been deemed offensive by the moral majority over the years.

Generally, if its offensive, we’ve played it.

Double J kicked off in 1975 playing a song that had never been played on radio before, the Skyhooks – ‘You Just Like Me ‘Cause I’m Good In Bed’.

In 1989 triple j was the only station in the world playing NWA‘s ‘Fuck Tha Police’. It bounced across the airwaves for 6 months before the police and politicians noticed and ABC management pulled it off the air.

Responding in a way that was true to the station, we played NWA’s track ‘Express Yourself‘ for 24hrs straight – 360 times in a row.

FROM THE GUESTBOOK…
Tim: One of the events that really set the station apart in my mind, and earned a lot of respect, was in the early 1990s when triple j played NWA’s “Express Yourself” on continuous loop for 24 hours in protest against a management decision to ban “Fuck tha police”, also by NWA. It’s always stuck out as an example of the media serving its purpose (and was damn funny at the time).

Hamish: My favorite moment was when NWA were banned, and as a protest you played, “Express Yourself” for 24 hours. I have told people all around the world about that and they always think it is the ultimate freedom of speach protest remark, especially concidering it was from a government station.

Klare: My favourite triple j moment would have to be when you played NWA’s ‘Express Yourself’ straight for 24hrs as a protest to censorship and not being allowed to play ‘f**k the police’. I think it was around 1989? I thought it showed true Integrity and support for the DJs.

Lyrics:

(ChuckD first verse)
THIS SONG DON’T GIVE A DAMN
IF THE RHYMES DON’T FIT
IF THE DJ QUIT
THIS SONG
DON’T GIVE A DAMN
IF YOU CAN’T SING TO DANCE TO IT
CAN’T ROMANCE TO IT
THIS SONG AIN’T ARROGANT
IF YOU DON’T TRY IT
BUY IT
IF YOUR RADIO DENY IT
DON’T CARE BOUT WHAT WHO GOT
WHAT’S COOL ON TV
OR WHAT SPOTS HOT I FORGOT
I AIN’T MAD AT EVOLUTION
BUT I STAND FOR REVOLUTION
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
SOMEBODY STAND UP

GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP

(Brother Ali verse)
THIS TRACK AINT ASKING YOU A DAMN THING
NOT THE BRAND NAME BOTTLE WITH YOUR CHAMPAGNE
NOT WHERE YOU LAND YOUR PRIVATE AIRPLANE
HOW MANY BLOOD DIAMONDS SHINING IN THAT CHAIN?
HOW MUCH COMPROMISE IS TIED TO THAT FAME?
HOW MANY MORE TIMES WE GOTTA HEAR THAT LAME
LINE IM INSPIRING THEM
TO DO WHAT? ROLL BETTER WEED AND GET HIGHER THAN THEM ?
FEED THE NEEDY GREEDY ASS FIRE IN THEM?
BE THE SAME DAMN DOG BUT TO FINER WOMEN?
THEY GONNA TELL ME THAT IM PREACHING TO THE CHOIR THAN IM
SURE THEY RIGHT BUT IM TRYING TO LIGHT A FIRE IN THEM
CAUSE I WAS RAISED BY THE ENEMY
AND EVER SINCE THEN THATS BEEN MY IDENTITY
SO IM TRYING TO GIVE BACK WHATS WAS GIVEN ME
TRUTH TOLD DELIVERY IS MY TENDENCY
YOUTH FOLD TO THE SPIRIT OF MY ENERGY
BOTTOM OF MY FEET IS SOMETHING THAT YOULL NEVER SEE
THATS CAUSE IM STANDING SINGING THE ANTHEM
FIST ON MY HAND, AND A LIST OF DEMANDS AND
WHEN THEY HEAR THIS MIGHT PISS IN THEIR PANTS AND
TRY TO GET THE CHILDREN TO NOT LISTEN TO THE MAN
BUT THE MIGHTY PE IS WHAT BIRTHED ALI
SO WHAT YOU GONNA THINK COME AFTER ME?
CHUCK D

GET UP, STAND UP

(ChuckD second verse)
OCCUPY IF YOU DENIED
PROTEST SONGS CAUSE I SEE WRONG
MOST OF MY HEROES STILL DONT APPEAR ON NO STAMP
SO I RANT EVEN WHEN THEY SAY I CAN’T
(PAUSE)
I RISE AGAINST
RAGE AGAINST
HOPE I DONT END UP BEING THE SAME THING IM FIGHTING AGAINST
HENCE
I WINCE NEVER ON THE FENCE
SINCE THEY THINK THE MASSES POWERLESS
I AIN’T ON NOBODY’S POWER LIST
I BALL MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE
I RAISE MY FIST W MY AUDIENCE LIKE THIS
LIKE THIS

GET UP, STAND UP,
GET UP, STAND UP

(ChuckD third verse)
GOT SO MUCH TO SHOUT ABOUT
WHAT THE 1% IS GETTIN OUT
RECESSION DEPRESSION DESPERATION DUE
NEVER HAVE SO MANY BEEN SCREWED BY SO FEW
CHEAPEST PRICE IS TO PAY ATTENTION
NO NEED TO DUMB DOWN TO WHAT I MENTION
NO NEED TO YOUNG DOWN HOW I MENTION
IN SPANISH PORTUGUESE ENGLISH FRENCH AND
NO SATISFACTION
LISTEN TO THE WORLD REACTION

GET UP, STAND UP,

Named by LIFE Magazine as one of the most important Americans of the 20th Century, DJ AFRIKA BAMBAATAA is a musical visionary, DJ extraordinaire, living legend and founder of the Universal Zulu Nation – a collective of socially and politically aware emcees, DJs, graffiti artists and break dancers. With over 35 years trailblazin’ around the world, Bam, as he’s affectionately known, can almost single-handedly be credited for the urban music revolution – redefining music and culture as we know it today. In fact, Bam is the person responsible for coining the term “Hip Hop” in reference to this global movement.

The man behind Hip Hop/Electro Funk classic ‘Planet Rock’ over the years has co-produced and performed with the likes of James Brown, George Clinton, UB40, Fort Knox Five, Leftfield, Jungle Brothers and A Tribe Called Quest among many others.

Bam’s futuristic soundscapes became a major influence in the development of not only hip-hop, but have also been instrumental in laying the foundation for Breaks, Electro, Freestyle, Techno and House music. “Planet Rock” has become arguably the most sampled song in music history, having been remixed and sampled by the likes of Paul Oakenfold, Westbam, George Acosta, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey and countless others. Rap/Metal band Rage Against The Machine also famously covered Bam’s track ‘Renegades of Funk’.

Still extremely active, Bam continues to record, tour and educate, maintaining his status as a living legend and forefather of the art. In 2006, Bam was honored for his incredible achievements by American music channel VH1 at the annual ‘Hip Hip Honors’ show and in 2007; he was nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. More recently, Bam accepted an appointment as visiting scholar at Cornell University where he speaks to classes, meets with students, community groups and performs the music he helped create and expand.

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to sample what a New York City Block Party is all about, live and direct from the Boogie Down Bronx! Be immersed in the knowledge of a master, icon and living treasure that is DJ AFRIKA BAMBAATAA.
