The 20 Best Beastie Boys Songs of All Time

What with all of this “Fight For Your Right Revisited” hoo-ha, it appears as if the Beastie Boys are coming to terms with the full arc of their career. For the Beasties, their first mega-smash hit used to occupy the same cultural dead zone as the Star Wars Christmas Special: Yes, of course it existed, but you weren’t going to get them to admit it.

But now, with an increasingly long lag time between albums and Adam “MCA” Yauch’s health issues throwing the group’s future into doubt, maybe it’s time to settle old scores.

So, in honor of both the Boys hitting the quarter-century mark and this week’s release of Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2, Paste presents our 20 favorite Beastie Boys tunes of all time. Plus: 5 instrumentals!

With a catalogue so deep, exclusions abound. Flame wars may commence in the comments section!

20. “An Open Letter to NYC”
The limp To The 5 Boroughs was a big letdown when it came out. Well, except toRolling Stone’s editors, who apparently appreciated all of the jabs at good ol’ Dubya. But “An Open Letter” works as a passionate aural collage and tribute to the Beasties’ hometown. Ostensibly, the song is a post-9/11 pep talk. But it’s more a portrait of the Big Apple as three men once knew it, and the ideals that the city still represents.

Quotable: “Dear New York, / I know a lot has changed / Two Towers down / But you’re still in the game.”

 

19. “Skills To Pay The Bills”
Okay, enough serious crap. Here’s the Beasties doing that three-headed braggadocio thing we all love so much on this non-album track.

Quotable: “I’m selling sex rhymes by the pound.”

 

18. “The New Style”
Maybe it’s because MTV played them to death, but I have little love for the big singles on Licensed To Ill. It’s like listening to three junior high school boys grunt over bad hair metal. Give me this instead, any day: a hard, skeletal beat, with each Beastie jockeying to out-schlock the others.

Quotable: “I’ve got money and juice, twin sisters in my bed / Their father had envy so I shot him in the head.”

 

17. “Professor Booty”
Because they have such beautiful chemistry collectively—and such interchangeable flows individually — there aren’t a lot of Beastie Boys songs like this one: each guy gets a verse all to himself. Adrock riles up the crowd, Mike D plays the easygoing philosopher, and MCA absolutely grinds rival MC Serch down to the cuticles.

Quotable: “Professor… what’s another word for pirate treasure?”

 

16. “The Move”
A live favorite. That harpsichord interlude is such a double-take moment for first-time listeners.

Quotable: “I don’t mean to brag / I don’t mean to boast / But I’m intercontinental when I eat French toast.”

 

15. “Get It Together”
A gem tossed off between two-on-two basketball games, “Get It Together” features a freestyling Q-Tip at the peak of his powers and the Beasties riding his verse’s coattails.

Quotable: “‘Cos she’s the cheese and I’m the macaroni!”

 

14. “She’s Crafty”

These guys don’t do enough story songs. Who could top this cautionary tale of a scheming party girl?

Quotable: “The girl is crafty like ice is cold.”

 

13. “Jimmy James”
Does anyone else get a Public Enemy vibe from this beat? What a statement to open Check Your Head. And it became the namesake for an excellent NewsRadio character.

Quotable: “People how ya doing there’s a new day dawning.”

 

12. “Body Movin’”
The night of 1,000 steel drums!

Quotable: “Like a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape / I’m fine like wine when I start to rap.”

 

11. “Car Thief”
We easily could have packed another two or three Paul’s Boutique deep cuts onto this list, but this track wins for its sheer, spaced-out L.A. vibe.

Quotable: “Buy my cheeba from the cop down the street / The only cop with the rope chain when he’s walking the beat.”

 

10. “Pass The Mic”
The exotic flute and MCA verse that open this track signal a new direction for the trio: a bit more introspection, but still plenty of bump to the beats.

Quotable: “Everybody rapping like it’s a commercial / Acting like life is a big commercial.”

 

9. “Sure Shot”
An inescapable banger in ’94. The sound of summer. Driving. With all the windows down. Who cared if the guys had gray hairs at this point?

Quotable: “I wanna say a little something that’s long overdue / The disrespect to women has got to be through.”

 

8. “Shadrach”
For all the inspired beat tapestries they sewed together on Paul’s Boutique, the Dust Brothers’ greatest decision might have been handing the reins to Sly & The Family Stone on this cut. And lyrically, this was like a quantum leap for the three Beasties. Biblical allusions, tight tag-team wordplay, and “equinox symmetry.”

Quotable: “If I had a penny for my thoughts I’d be a millionaire.”

 

7. “So What’cha Want”
The Beasties at their most nasal, which is saying something. (The vowel sounds in the song title don’t help). But one can see why this jam took off in ’92, amidst the grunge explosion. It’s distorted, spiky, and perfect for young moshers. And dig that organ.

Quotable: “I’m as cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce.”

 

6. “Hey Ladies”
Yeah, no wonder Paul’s Boutique tanked commercially. This single, both sonically and in its accompanying video, recast America’s favorite frat boy lunkheads as a bunch of psychedelic space pimps with a disco fetish. But damned if it isn’t a masterpiece. The Beasties aren’t exactly saying anything here that they weren’t onLicensed to Ill—they still want your daughter in the backseat. But it’s how they’re saying it, with dense pop-culture asides and atop a luscious Dust Brothers beat, that makes all the difference.

Quotable: “Vincent Van Gogh go and mail that ear!”

 

5. “Paul Revere”
Every rap group needs an origin story, and this one is a barnburner. With perhaps a minor embellishment or two, the Beasties recall that magical day when they first met—a day of gunplay, robbery and plenty of booze, of course.

Quotable: “I did it like this / I did it like that / I did it with a Wiffle ball bat.”

 

4. “Intergalactic”
Just a seismic comeback single. On an album (Hello Nasty) bursting with weird tangents and bugged-out beats, this miniature space odyssey might have been one of the weirdest things on there. But it kicks like a Klingon—especially at Bar Mitzvah parties.

Quotable: “When it comes to beats, I’m a fiend / I like my sugar with coffee and cream.”

 

3. “Root Down”
Bass for your face. The greatest groove in the Beastie Boys’ library.

Quotable: “The original nasal kid is doing damage!”

 

2. “Shake Your Rump”
Bam! Right out of the gate, the first proper track on Paul’s Boutique is firing on all cylinders with a huge drum fill. It only gets juicier from there. Which part do you rock hardest to? The funky scratch guitar? The gooey synth bass? The bong hit in the middle? How about all of the above?

Quotable: “Running from the law, the press and the parents / Is your name Michael Diamond? / Naw, mine’s Clarence.”

 

1. “Sabotage”
Even after they became all “mature” or whatever, the Beastie Boys have always been about getting the crowd amped. And nothing in their repertoire gets fist pumping and heads banging like this raw, fuzzed-out slab of aggro-funk. A song so hard, it apparently will inspire no less a badass than James Tiberius Kirk in a few centuries.

Quotable: “WHHHHHYYYYYYYY?”

所有的時間最好的20 Beastie Boys的歌曲
“爭取你的權利再訪”呼,哈,看來彷彿野獸男孩要來計算他們的職業生涯的全弧什麼用了這一切。對於狂野男孩樂隊,他們的第一個大型紅極一時過去佔用相同的文化盲區的星球大戰聖誕特別:是的,當然它的存在,但你不會讓他們承認這一點。

但是現在,隨著專輯和亞當“MCA”Yauch的投擲組的未來產生懷疑的健康問題之間越來越長的滯後時間,也許是時候,心有不甘。

所以,為了紀念雙方打到四分之一世紀標誌和本週發布的男孩辣醬委員會,鉑。2,粘貼提出的所有時間我最喜歡的20 Beastie Boys的歌曲。加:5樂器!

與目錄做深,排除比比皆是。烈焰戰神可以開始在評論部分!

20,“一封公開信給紐約市”
跛行到5自治市鎮是一個巨大的失望,當它走了出來。嗯,除了滾石雜誌的編輯,誰顯然,在良好的醇感謝所有刺戳“Dubya。但是,“一封公開信”作為一個充滿激情的聽覺拼貼和讚揚狂野男孩樂隊“的故鄉。從表面上看,這首歌是後9月11日的動員講話。但它更在大蘋果的肖像三個男人一旦知道了,那這個城市依然代表著理想。

新書: “親愛的紐約,/我知道發生了很多變化/雙塔下跌/但你還是在遊戲中”

 

19,“技能來支付帳單”
好了,夠嚴重的廢話。這裡是狂野男孩樂隊做了三頭夸父的事情,我們都愛這麼多關於這個非的專輯曲目。

新書: “我賣的性別押韻的英鎊。”

 

18“新樣式”
也許是因為MTV的發揮他們的死亡,但我有在大單打小愛授權給生病。這就像聽三個初中男生咕嚕了壞頭髮的金屬。給我這個不是,任何一天:一份耕耘,骨骼拍,每野獸爭奪到了,蹩腳的人。

新書: “我有錢,果汁,雙胞胎姐妹在我的床上/他們的父親不得不羨慕,所以我拍了他的頭。”

 

17,“教授藏寶”
因為他們有這樣漂亮的化學集體和互換等個別流動-有沒有很多的Beastie Boys的歌曲像這樣的:每個人得到一首詩歸自己所有。Adrock激怒了人群,邁克ð扮演隨和哲學家,馬華絕對研對手的MC產品查詢下到角質層。

新書: “?教授......什麼是另一個字的海盜寶藏”

 

16“動起來”
的現場喜愛。這大鍵琴的插曲就是這樣的Double-Take的時刻,第一次的聽眾。

新書: “我的意思不是吹牛/我並不是自誇/但我洲際,當我吃的法式烤麵包。”

 

15“得到它在一起”
à寶石二對二籃球比賽的拋出,“得到它在一起”採用了即興饒舌棉條在他的權力和狂野男孩樂隊騎著他的詩歌的光環高峰。

新書: “'因為她是奶酪和我的通心粉!”

 

14,“她的狡猾”

這些傢伙沒有做足夠的故事的歌曲。誰可以頂一個詭計多端的派對女孩這個警世故事?

新書: “姑娘是狡猾的像冰一樣冷。”

 

13,“吉米詹姆斯”
沒有任何人得到這一掌公敵的氛圍?什麼語句來打開檢查你的腦袋。它成為了同名的一個很好的NewsRadio字符。

新書: “人們怎麼做雅有一個新的一天到來。”

 

12,“身體往前”
1000鋼桶的夜晚!

新書: “就像一瓶教皇新堡的/我很好,就像酒,當我開始說唱”

 

11“汽車大盜”
,我們很容易可以裝兩三保羅的精品大幅削減到這個名單,但是這條賽道贏得了它的純粹,間隔出洛杉磯的氛圍。

新書: “買我的cheeba從警察在街上/有繩鏈,唯一的警察,當他行走的節奏。”

 

10,“傳話筒”
的異國情調長笛和馬華詩歌打開這個軌道信號為三人的新方向:多一點反省,但仍然有很多凹凸的節拍。

新書: “每個人都說唱就像是一個商業/表演般的生活是一個大的商業。”

 

9,“當然拍攝”
在94年的一個不可迴避的香腸。夏天的聲音。駕駛。與所有的窗戶了。誰在乎,如果球員在這一點上有白髮?

新書: “我想說的一點東西是姍姍來遲/不尊重婦女已經得到了通過。”

 

8,“沙得拉”
對於所有的靈感節拍掛毯他們一起縫在保羅的精品,灰塵兄弟的最重大的決定可能已經交給了韁繩斯萊和斯通家族在這個切。和抒情,這就像一個質的飛躍三個狂野男孩樂隊。聖經典故,緊標記隊的文字遊戲,而“春分對稱性。”

新書: “如果我有一分錢的我的想法我會成為百萬富翁。”

 

7,“所以What'cha旺旺”
的狂野男孩樂隊在他們最鼻塞,這是在說什麼。(元音音歌名不幫忙)。但是我們可以看到,為什麼這卡在92年起飛,在一片垃圾爆炸。它扭曲了,高低不平,最適合年輕moshers。挖器官。

新書: “我涼在一碗辣椒醬黃瓜。”

 

6,“嗨女”
是啊,難怪保羅的精品重挫市場。這種單一的,無論是音質和其附帶的視頻,重鑄美國最受歡迎的兄弟會男孩lunkheads與迪斯科神物一堆迷幻空間皮條客。但該死的,如果它不是一個傑作。在狂野男孩樂隊不完全說什麼在這裡,他們沒有授權給生病 -他們仍然希望在後座的女兒。但它的他們是如何說的,密集的流行文化旁白和上面一個甜美的灰塵兄弟擊敗,這讓一切變得不同。

新書: “文森特梵高去郵寄的耳朵!”

 

5,“保羅·里維爾”
每一個說唱團需要一個起源的故事,而這一次是barnburner。有可能是一個小點綴,二,狂野男孩樂隊記得的槍戰,搶劫他們第一次見面-A時,一天,當然還有大量的酒氣,神奇的一天。

新書: “我這樣做,是這樣的/我做了這樣的/我做了一個Wiffle球棒”

 

4,“星際”
就在地震復出單曲。上一張專輯(你好討厭)與怪異的切線和竊聽出次爆破,這個小型太空漫遊可能已經在那裡的最奇怪的事情之一。但它踢像克林貢語,尤其是在成年禮派對。

新書: “當涉及到節拍,我是一個惡魔/我喜歡我的糖,咖啡和奶油。”

 

3,“根下”
低音你的臉。最槽的Beastie Boys的“庫。

新書: “原來鼻孩子做傷害!”

 

2,“搖你的臀部”
巴姆!右出大門,就先正軌,保羅的精品是射擊一個巨大的鼓填充所有氣瓶。它不僅會從那裡多汁。哪一部分你最難搖滾到?時髦的划痕吉他嗎?糊糊合成貝司?奉在中間打?如何對上述所有的?

新書: “從法律,媒體和家長運行/你的名字是邁克爾鑽石?/瑙,礦山的克拉倫斯。“

 

1,“破壞”
即使他們成為所有“成熟”或什麼的,野獸男孩一直對獲取陶醉的人群。並沒有在他們的劇目得到的拳頭抽水和頭撞像仇恨放克的這種原始的,模糊化輸出板。一首歌這麼辛苦,這顯然會激發沒有少一個壞蛋不是詹姆斯·提比略·柯克在幾個世紀。

新書: “WHHHHHYYYYYYYY?”

 

獎金:該五大Beastie Boys的所有時間,樂器:

5,“正在偷”出了醫院“
4。“薩布羅薩”
3。“槽福爾摩斯”
2。“在3的”
