BEASTIE BOYS Released Big Time 4th Scream & Shout ‘ILL COMMUNICATION’ Album 25 Years Ago …

31 May 2019

Far-out hip-rap-hop rock legends BEASTIE BOYS released their fourth ace full length scream & shout ILL COMMUNICATION today 25 years ago, on 31 May 1994. An artistic
and commercial success hitting the top spot of the US Albums Chart.

Rolling Stone wrote: “Ill Communication continues the formula established on ‘Check’ — home-grown jams powered by live instruments; speedy hardcore rants; and insane rhyme
styles buried under the warm hiss of vintage analog studio equipment. ‘Ill’ maintains the Beasties’ consistency of style, but underneath its goofy, dope-smokin’ antics lies — gasp! —
an artistic maturity that reveals how the Boys have grown since they began as pimply New
York punks making anarchic noise.’

BEASTIE BOYS Released Fulminating ‘SABOTAGE’ Single 25 Years Ago Today…

When timeless in sound and vision it’s a…


28 January 2019

SABOTAGE is definitely one of the best BEASTIE BOYS slams ever. A scathing rapcore
blast with Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz‘s screaming hysterically ‘Oh my god, it’s a mirage I’m tellin’ y’all, it’s sabotage‘ over a rock injected rap blow-up. It was released 25 years ago today, on 28 January 1994 as the first single from their fourth longplayer ILL COMMUNICATION. Funny thing is Ad-Rock revealed afterward that “ the track was recorded as an instrumental, and the vocals weren’t added until two weeks before the record was completed. It was the last song on ‘Ill Communication’ to be finished.” The hilarious accompanying video was directed by Spike Jonze. A parody of the 70s American macho TV crime series.
