Kid ‘n Play’s Face The Nation Is Also Twenty Years Old This Month

I could write a five thousand word essay about how Chad Channing’s uncredited cymbal work on “Polly” is directly responsible for Bill Clinton’s first presidential victory, but it seems more pertinent right now to remind humanity that Kid ‘n Play also dropped an album on September 24, 1991. Face the Nation, the playful rap duo’s third and final effort, yielded a number one hit in “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody” and gave the world an excuse to keep its parachute pants on for just that much longer. I like to think right now, up in Heaven, Kurt’s cabbage patching to this song with Jim, Jimi, and Tupac.
