With classic joints like Paul Revere and Sabotage and albums like Ill Communication, The Beastie Boys are in our hall of fame of seminal Hip Hop bands.
Their classic 1986 debut album, Licensed to Ill, the first rap album to top the Billboard charts has reached diamnond status, selling 10 million copies. They have been one of the longest running Hip Hop bands and one of four to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Regardless of the stats, in my opinion, their unchanged style of delivery with something that was ahead of time, made them unique, especially in todays Hip Hop. And they made some of my favourite instrumentals!
Sadly, the band is no more, due to the untimely death of Adam Yauch, aka MCA on 4th May, 2012. Featuring Ad Rock, MCA, Mike D and DJ Mix Master Mike, who joined the group on their 5th album, Hello Nasty and the title is from one of the tracks from that album.
