Yo! Bum Rush the Show is the debut studio album of American hip hop group Public Enemy. The album was originally released in 1987 under Def Jam Recordings.

The group's logo, a silhouette of a black man in a rifle's crosshairs, debuted on the album's cover. Yo! Bum Rush the Show features a sample-heavy sound by production team The Bomb Squad.

NME magazine named it the best album of the year in its 1987 critics poll. Along with the Beastie Boys Licensed to Ill (1986) and LL Cool J's Radio (1985), music writer Cheo H. Coker has cited Yo! Bum Rush the Show as one of three of the most influential albums in hip hop history. In 1998, it was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums. In 2003, the album was ranked number 497 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. - Wiki

“Public Enemy's records were produced by Rick Rubin (the rock producer who has a soft spot for hip-hop). Rick has worked with many different groups, ranging from the Beastie Boys to Slayer. While Public Enemy were arguably the most influential hip-hop act of the late both in image and lyrically, the group's music was also heavily influential. The group’s sounds had a lot of cut and paste in it as well as a lot of funk and heavy guitar sounds. The group's production crew, The Bomb Squad were the ones responsible for this as well as the group's lead turntableist, Terminator X.” - Sputnik Music
