Peaking at on the Hot 100 in September 1982, "Planet Rock" was just the third rap song on that chart, following "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang ( 1979) and "The Breaks" by Kurtis Blow ( 1980). But compared to other rap songs of the era, "Planet Rock" was in a different galaxy. When they released "Planet Rock" the next year, it was with a different set of MCs: The Soulsonic Force. This was a time when the DJ was considered the star and the rappers could be interchangeable.
