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.
Just in case you thought Dark Was the Night (The W) was too downtrodden for your musical tastes, Waxplotation will be releasing another Causes album. This album, like the last, will go towards in the efforts in Darfur.
