The street was referenced in a number of their songs, including “Check the Rhime,” and they shot the music video for the single outside Nu-Clear Cleaners, a dry cleaning business on the road back in 1991. Now a group of fans have submitted plans to local council member, Daneek Miller to create a mural on the side of the building as a permanent tribute to the band.
