beastie boys: the good old days

Just because:

lti.jpgGirls - to do the dishes
Girls - to clean up my room
Girls - to do the laundry
Girls - and in the bathroom
Girls - that's all I really want is girls
Two at a time - I want girls
With new wave hairdos - I want girls

"I'm Mike D. and I get respect
Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect"
M.C.A. was with it and he's my ace
So I grabbed the piano player and I punched him in the face
The piano player's out - the music stopped
His boy had beef - and he got dropped
Mike D. grabbed the money - M.C.A. snatched the gold
I grabbed two girlies and a beer that's cold.

What time is it?


i think you know what time it is:
it's time to get ill

Ah, the good old days of the giant inflatable peni and dancing girls in cages and don't forget the secret message on the plane's tail... bah!

and another thing... at what point will they become the Beastie Men?

Ah, for the non-sanctimonious Beasties of old! Pardon me, but I'm going to go loop the video of "Body Movin'" until my neighbors batter my door down to make me stop.

But one wonders, given their newfound pacisfism, whether they would still be willing to fight for their right to party?

Oh man - I remember being at a party during my HS years and hearing this song. I bought the tape immediately. Heck - I think I still have it.. somewhere.

Sure, they'll still fight for the right to party, under the following definitions:

"fight" = complain, bitch, and moan
"party" = getting up at every available occasion to say, "Tibet, good. Iraq, also good. War, baaaad!"

It's all about the definitions.
One suspects they're being crabby because their moms really did take away their porno mags.


Ummm...it's not "What time is it?", it's "Whats the time?".

Whats another word for pirate treasure?

I read in an article that the BBs actually regret making license to ill (one of my all time favs). They claim that thier lyrics were irresponsible and the gratiuitous sex, drug and violence references "a bad thing".

I kinda like the gratiuitous sex, drug and violence references mixed with catchy riffs.

To me, the BBs nowadays (now that they are uber rich, famous, and have gone political) are kinda lame.

"My manager's crazy, he always smokes dust, he's got his own room at the back of the bus."

Forgot to add that "Licensed to Ill" had to be one of the best albums ever to have in a car with a bumpin' sound system. Ahhh the good ole high school days.

FYI - They released a special song (their first new material in four years) which you can download for free on their website. Or here:


Woops, I just read that you've already been tipped about the new Beastie song. Slap me and call me Chirac.

Time to put more orange juice in that Screwdriver, Michele.

Let it go...let yourself go...slow and low, that is the tempo!

Nobody bought it at the time, but they had a real masterpiece with Paul's Boutique. It's a fucking amazing album.


Riddle me this my brother can you handle it
Your style to my style you can't hold a candle to it
Equinox symmetry and the balance is right
Smokin' and drinkin' on a Tuesday night
Not how you play the game but it's how you win it
I cheat and steal and sin and I'm a cynic
For those about to rock we salute you
The dirty thoughts for dirty minds we contribute to
I once was lost but now I'm found
The music washes over and you're one with the sound
Well who shall inherit the earth the meek shall
And yo I think I'm starting to peak now Al
And then the man upstairs well I hope that he cares
If I had a penny for my thoughts I'd be a millionaire
We're just 3 M.C.'s and we're on the go
Shadrach Mesach Abednago

"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"

Only 24 hours in a day
Only 12 notes well a man can play
Music for all for not just one people
And now we're gonna bust with the Putney Swope sequel
More Adidas sneakers that a plumber got pliers
Got more suites that Jacoby & Meyers well..
If not for my vices and my bugged out desires
My year would be good just like Goodyear's tires
Cause I'm out pickin' pockets at the Atlantic Antic
And nobody wants to hear you cause your rhymes are so frantic
I mix business and pleasure way too much
You know wine and women and song and such
I don't get blue I gotta mean red streak
You don't pay the band your friends yo that's weak
Get even like Steven like pulling a Rambo
Well Shadrach Mesach Abednago you know

"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago" no
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"

Stealin' from the rich and I'm out robbing banks
Givein' to the poor and I always give thanks
Because I've got more stories that J.D.'s got Salinger
I hold the title and you are the challenger
I've got money like Charles Dickens
I've Got the girlies in the Couple like the Colonel's got the chickens
And I always go out dapper like Harry S. Truman
I'm madder than Mad's Alfred E. Newman
"Never gonna let them say that I don't love you"

"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"

My noggin is hoggin all kinds of thoughts
And Adam Yoggin is Yauch and he's rockin of course
Well smoke the holy chalice got my own religion
Rally round the stage and check the funky dope musicians
Just like Jerry Lee Swaggert or Jerry Lee Falwell
You love Mario Andretti cause he always drives his car well
Vicious circle of reality since the day you were born
And we love the hot butter "say what" the popcorn
Sippin on wine and mackin
Rockin' on the stage with all the hands clappin' Yea...
Ride the wave of fate it don't ride me holmes
"Being very proud to be an M.C."
And then the man upstairs well I hope that he cares
If I had a penny for my thoughts I'd be a millionaire
Amps and crossovers under my rear hood
Because the bass is bumpin' from the back of my Fleetwood
They tell us what to do hell no
Shadrach Mesach Abednago

"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago" no
"Shadrach Mesach Abednago"

My Nuts!!!

I belive it's booty.

that's what it is.

Aside from Zeppelin the BBoys are one of my favorites. I am so disappointed int their recent anti-war effort and they deserve to be fisked for such.

However, some of my favorite lyrics of the past...

I figured out who makes the crack
it's the sucka's with the badges and the blue jackets
