I could not stop laughing when I first popped the tape of “I’m the Man” into my car stereo, wayyyy back when it came out.
The sampling of Sam Kinison’s famous scream, plus heavy metal riffs and New York white-boy raps were groundbreaking.
Yes, it was a joke, but it was also a homage to hip-hop, and opened the door for the Rage Against the Machines and the like.
Wished there was more on the recording; the cover of “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” was good, as was the live “Caught In A Mosh.”
Got to see “I’m the Man” done when they opened for Ozzy Osbourne in 1989…a killer show, topped off with this.
A great band that’s grown but still tells the world to f— off!
