Album Review

Raising Hell is a 1986 (see 1986 in music) album by old school rappers Run-D.M.C.. Their breakthrough album, Raising Hell trumped standing perceptions of commercial viability for hip hop groups, achieving triple-platinum status and receiving critical attention from quarters that had previously ignored hip hop as an urban fad that would soon disappear from the mainstream American consciousness.

Notably, Raising Hell features the well-known collaboration with Aerosmith, "Walk This Way". While the song was not the first fusion of rock and hip hop, it was the first one to make a significant impact in the charts. It became the first rap song to crack the top 5 of The Billboard Hot 100. Raising Hell peaked at #1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop Album chart, and at #6 on the Billboard 200.

Also, later the song "It's Tricky" would be featured on the game SSX Tricky as the theme song for the game. In 2003, the album was ranked number 120 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
