Video: Run-DMC at Fun Fun Fun Fest

DMC said it wouldn't happen. But it did, and it happened last night at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest.

"Do you really want to see me and Run running around without Jay back there?" he told The Boombox in 2010, referring to band DJ Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell, murdered in 2002. "With some other DJ? It'll be disrespectful ... We can probably get back together, but it's got to be in a different form. So it's not going to happen yet."

But DMC and Joseph "Run" Simmons finally chose Day 1 of Fun Fun Fun Fest for their first show together since 2002. Here's the first moments of that historic Friday night performance (for those going to FFFF on Saturday, DMC will perform by himself at 3:15 p.m. on the Blue stage).
