Here’s the official video for Public Enemy’s Harder Than You Think, which has become the band’s first ever UK Top 10 hit thanks to its use on Channel 4’s Paralympics coverage.

The track originally featured on the album How You Sell Soul to a Soulless People Who Sold Their Soul? which came out in 2007. As you can probably tell from the video, the album was a low budget, independent release which didn’t cause much of a ripple on either side of the Atlantic. But whoever at Channel 4 heard it clearly had an ear for a big tune. CS
