Afrika Bambaataa - Planet Rock (Breakdance video remix)

The single "Planet Rock" was one of the earliest hits for hip hop and remains one of its pioneering recordings. The single's liner notes credit Kraftwerk with the song.

In creating the track, portions of Kraftwerks "Trans Europe Express" were used, along with portions of songs by Captain Skyy and Ennio Morricone. Rather than sampling these works digitally, the phrases were re-recorded in the studio. "Planet Rock" is also cited as the first electro funk record. "Renegades of Funk" was covered by Rage Against the Machine on their Renegades album.
