The. Beastie. Boys.


Like it or not motherfuckers, the Beastie Boys are some of theeee most influential pioneers of Hip Hop. When I was introduced to Hip Hop (at the tender age of 10) by a late night radio host named Dr. Demento, who played a song called "Fight For Your Right" by none other than Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "MCA" Yauch, and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz. I linked that shit up to Wikipedia just for all you ignorant-ass bitches out there. My world would never be the same. What was next? Run DMC, Fat Boys, Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Public Enemy, and Grandmaster Flash to name a few. Some old, some new, if you don't like it....fuck you. The following was transmitted to me via Electronic Mail by the B-BOYS this very day:
