So What'cha Want?

Beastie Boys

I hadn't known this, but the Beastie Boys started out as punks. After blowing away the world of hip-hop with "License To Ill" and their subsequent records, this EP marked a brief 11 minute return to those punk roots. In both genres, MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock aren't shy and hold no punches when it comes to their politics.

Seemed suitable today. Get your sticker?

Now THAT was a presidential speech! Seeing Jesse Jackson and Oprah really crying was something. Truly, an historical day.
