Fight The Power....Isley Brothers or Public Enemy?

Same title. Different piece. But, basically the same message.

  Which of these definitive tracks moves you more?

Yeah...   that IS a Hard Choice.  :-\


The Isley Brothers'   Fight The Power was used in 'Taxi' directed by Tim Story.  I liked the way the song was used in a whimsical way in 1 scene.

Public Enemy's   Fight The Power was not only featured in 'Do The Right Thing' directed by Spike Lee but was the underlying theme song throughout the entire movie; the song was played more than 10 times, if I am not mistaken.

I'm giving it to Public Enemy because of the music group's relevance.
