Afrika Bambaataa - Planet Rock

Planet Rock - The Album is an old school rap album by Afrika Bambaataa & the Soulsonic Force, released in 1986 (see 1986 in music), as a collection of previous singles.

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 Kraftwerk's "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.
