I'll never forget seeing them live the week Licensed To Ill hit number one. It was such a revelation to see hip-hop fans, alternative fans, and metal fans at the same concert. That just didn't HAPPEN then.
By way of tribute, the Mets used all Beastie Boys songs as entrance music for their hitters tonight. Nice tribute to a New York legend.
The original version was all synthesizers and crap. The new version (the one that I own) has all live instruments, and it kicks butt!!! Everyone should go out and get it. It is the feel good album of the century!
