YMMV: Public Enemy
  • Award Snub: Snubbed by a single track no less. Apocalypse 91... The Enemy Strikes Black was beaten out for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group at the 34th Grammy awards by the forgettable Will Smith single "Summertime".
  • Ethnic Scrappy + Magical Negro: Bashed to hell and back on "Burn Hollywood Burn", with Ice Cube and Big Daddy Kane joining the fun.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: In "Caught, Can We Get a Witness?" they seem adamant about never 'Selling Out'. A couple of decades and mounting Child Support payments later, Flav needed some cash, and, once VH-1 came calling...
  • Sequel Displacement: Nation of Millions makes it so easy to forget it's their second album...
  • Unfortunate Implications: It Takes a Nation of Millions... has only three songs with profanity, about as many as De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising. Yet only PE got the Parental Advisory Sticker. Gee, how could THAT be?
