This is no April fools joke, I think today is going to be a Public Enemy listening day for me. I wonder how many people now know how politically upfront their lyrics were. Fight The Power is just one example of this, and it isn't anywhere near their most controversial or direct songs. By The Time I Get To Arizona, was a song about the assassination of a governor because he didn't believe people should observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a paid holiday back in 1987. Just as a fun (and a little scary) fact, the first time Martin Luther King Jr. Day was officially observed in all 50 States in the U.S. was the year 2000.
