Few artists have the bravo to come onto the scene, kicking in the doors of a genre that…by looks…they would never fit into.
And then came “The Beastie Boys”.
Originally a punk band…true…that made noise with an self released album named “Cooky Puss”.
They grasped hold of the hip hop scene with their huge album “License To Ill”, which when released had no images of the band.
They let the music do the talking.
The rest is music history.
For this week, I chose my favorite Beastie track off their album “Paul’s Boutique”. It brings the funk and pays homage to none other than “Saturday Night Fever” and the disco era.
The cover is quite entertaining as well. 2 guys, 1 guitar, a bucket and a cowbell.
Ain’t it funky, now!
The Beastie Boys…..you have been covered on Sunday.
