"I've been a spokesperson for a generation," Chuck D notes on "Long and Whining Road," a proud fact whose modest past tense suggests why these commercial has-beens still make terrific albums. Chuck has nothing to prove and plenty to say. Flavor Flav is the funniest rapper ever to bamboozle VH1. And their young guitar-bass-drums "baNNed" slams their conscious points down.
