The Message

I heart Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five almost as much as I heart The Sugarhill Gang. You just can't top the lyric

have you ever went over a friends house to eat
and the food just aint no good
i mean the macaroni's soggy the peas are mushed
and the chicken tastes like wood
so you try to play it off like you think you can
by sayin that youre full
and then your friend says momma he's just being polite
he aint finished uh uh that's bull

Grandmaster flash steered hip hop in a bit more of a political direction.

Freida Bee, I love "Rapper's Delight" too.

THe chiken tastes like wood line is all that really matters in all that, precisely, but I wanted to provide a context. It almost was the whole page long lyric, because in second place is...

i dont care what these people think

im just sittin here makin myself nauseous

with this ugly food that stinks

Of course the whole song is a gem!
