Beastie Boys – (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!) (1986)

April 27, 2011

Listen, Beastie Boys get namechecked in this blog’s clumsy strapline so they are overdue an appearance.

This is just a fantastic single from the classic Licensed to Ill LP released in 1986.

Looking back, how good were things when the Smiths, New Order, Beastie Boys, Elvis Costello, Electro, Early Chicago House, Husker Du, etc, etc. were on offer?

Two videos – the original track from 1986 and then the new 30 minute epic “Fight For Your Right Revisited” featuring Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Susan Sarandon, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Steve Buscemi, Shannyn Sossamon, Kirsten Dunst, Ted Danson, Chloe Sevigny and Orlando Bloom, as well as the actual Beasties.

I think we can all agree we’re on the same team here and that’s the no pie, no sledgehammer team”
