In January 1981, "Rapture" was released as the second and final single from the album. The song reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it stayed for two weeks. It was the first No. 1 song in the U.S. to feature rap vocals.
And you hip-hop,
and you don't stop
Just blast off, sure shot
'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars
Yes, when you scan a Led Zeppelin album, it mostly sounds the same too...
Scanning isn't listening...
Not sure thats true, about LZ or many others
Does scanning a Beatles album sound the same from track to track.
Don't think so
lol, Keith Richards says your rap sucks monkey balls

While Richards did not hold back — saving his harshest musical critiques for hip-hop — Daily News reporter Jim Farber noted the guitarist "follows every put-down with a wink."
Still Richards was quick to crack, "Rap — so many words, so little said." He added: "What rap did that was impressive was to show there are so many tone-deaf people out there. All they need is a drum beat and somebody yelling over it and they're happy. There’s an enormous market for people who can't tell one note from another."
This isn't the first time the guitarist has expressed displeasure for the genre. Speaking to Rolling Stone in 2007, he said, "Hip-hop leaves me cold. But there are some people out there who think it's the meaning of life... I don't wanna be yelled at; I wanna be sung to. I never really understood why somebody would want to have some gangster from L.A. poking his fingers in your face. As I say, it don't grab me. I mean, the rhythms are boring; they're all done on computers."
It is to someone who isn’t listening.
No, even to someone not listening, actual musicians can vary greatly in the presentation. Not always, and not all, but many can and do.
99% of hip hop and rap sound the same, because, it is the same. Krapp.
I blame this whole crappy Genre on The Fresh Prince and Hammer time.
Again...you aren’t listening.
So you can’t possibly hear.
Anyone who posts such a video about ‘why hip hop culture sucks’, which was maybe the DUMBEST thing I’ve heard in months...can’t be listening. Admit it - you didn’t even listen to that video before you posted it. You just pasted it because of the title. If I had more time I would transcribe what you felt was so relevant.
East Coast, West Coast...for example....have totally different sounds.
Totally different flows...
