My Favorite Beastie Boys Song per album in descending order and once again my favorite song is a deep cut off of Check Your Head…

Hot Sauce Committee Part Two (2011): My favorite songs off of their last album are the reggae track, Don’t play no garmes that I can’t win (With Santigold), the bad ass Too Many Rappers (With Nas), and smooth groove instrumental Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament.

The Mix Up (2007): From the Grammy Winning All instrumental album The Electric Worm and Dramastically Different.

To the 5 boroughs (2004): Three The Hard Way & Hey Fuck You.

Hello Nasty (1998): Three Mc’s and One DJ, Sneaking out the hospital, and the bizarre bossa nova I don’t know sung by MCA and Miho Hatori from Cibo Mato.

ill communication (1994): B boys making with the freak freak (with a hilarious sample of old time comedian Mantan Moreland), Root down, Flute Loop, Get it together (with Q Tip) and Sabotage.

Check your head (1992): So whatcha want & Something’s Got to give

Paul’s Boutique (1989): Hey ladies, High Plains Drifter, Car Thief.

License to ill (1986): Slow and Low & No sleep till Brooklyn

The song that started it all was the Carvel ice cream crank call novelty record that a friend of mine had a bootleg 7 inch of Cookie Puss from 1983.

But my all time favorite Beastie Boys Song is this song which was a return diss on fellow white rappers 3Rd Bass. MCA’s Rapid Fire third verse aimed at MC Serch is just mad spitting classic…Professor Booty from Check Your Head



“…Thought you could walk on me to get some ground to walk on
I’ll put the rug out under your ass as I talk on
I’ll take you out like a sniper on a roof
Like an emcee at the fever in the DJ booth
With your headphones strapped, you’re rockin’ rewind/pause
Tryin’ to figure out what you can do to go for yours
But like a pencil to a paper, I got more to come
One after another, you can all get some…”
