NWA – Fuck The Police Shut Down Triple J | Straight Outta Compton Film Screening


As lucky N.W.A fans this weekend catch the first screenings of the much anticipated ‘Straight Outta Compton’ film we though we should share this little short radio story. The film is already screening in the states to some great reviews and opens in Sydney on September 3rd. (Check out Info HERE at Hoyts or another other cinema)

When NWA’s ‘Fuck The Police’ was first released in 1989 there wasn’t many station who had the balls to actually play it.

It was either heavily-censored or banned on radio stations in the united states and Europe & there was a point where local Australian station Triple J was the only station in the world playing ‘Fuck The Police’ which raised massive concerns from authorities in Australia.

After playing the song for a few weeks with no issue it wasn’t long before the songs lyrics caught the ear of local police and politicians in Western Australia. They successfully lobbied ABC management to have the song pulled from play lists immediately.

It a true act of defiance the station staff refused to fold and continued to program the song even though the act of defiance actually cost some of them their jobs at the time. In solidarity with sacked station staff, the remaining staff decided to run their own form of protested by playing N.W.A – ‘Express Yourself’ for 24 hours straight back in 1990 which gained the station massive notoriety and made headlines around the world. Still to this day they station features part of the controversial song each day as part of their news segment promo like true champions.

Established in 1996 as a radio program, by Sydney Hip Hop fiend Thomas Rock, Hardcore Classic set the standards for true school Hip Hop in Sydney. Hardcore Classic was one of the first to program a 100% Australian Hip Hop content, on 89.3 2GLF, and went off air in 2001, so that Tommy Rock could produce the first national Hip Hop show in Australia, Triple J’s Hip Hop Show. In 2008 the show returned to the airwaves on 2MCR w/ DJ Kraft & Direct and began streaming online via Goonbag Radio in 2010.

In 2014, Hardcore Classic returns to the airwaves, now on one of Sydney’s most reputable community stations, 2SER 107.3! Joining Thomas Rock on the new Hardcore Classic team is radio veteran, and fellow Hip Hop fiend, Ran-Dee, who brings with him 8+ years of radio experience via his previous shows – 6 Feet Deep on FBI 94.5, Shoreshot on Bondi FM w/ Mere-D, and The Tipping Point on Alchemy Radio SBS w/ Kween G & DJ Jonah. Rounding off the dream team is Hardcore Classic’s official DJ, Raine Supreme.

The human encyclopedia of music, and turntable technician, has quickly become the go-to DJ in Sydney for all things Hip Hop, soul and funk! Get ready for a show filled with high profile guests, plenty of laughs, insight, knowledge, and more dope music than you know what to do with. Hardcore Classic brings you the best of the past and combines it with the latest heat hittin’ the street. Nothin’ but pure unadulterated HIP HOP!
