190: “Nonstop Disco Powerpack” by The Beastie Boys

I get paid for this shit.Talk about a time machine timewarp. To celebrate the release of their latest album, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (May 2011), the Beastie Boys threw free tracks of the entire album onto YouTube, and get this… the tracks are recorded off a damn jambox sitting on the Knicks’ floor in Madison Square Garden.  It sounds terrible, like warm ass.  It’s poetry.

I hope you’ve appreciated what has gone down here this month… it’s fruition of the future.  You don’t need flac files and gold speaker wires to taste these jams.  A jambox (and/or a broadband Internet connection) is all the technology you need.  And if you want a distilled taste of Beastie Boys relevance listen to Ad-Rock find his flow at 1:05.  Dude was born in 1966.  But he’s only as old as his last idea.

And yes, there’s a 30-minute video revisit of “Fight for your Right” with Will Ferrell, Jack Black and Jim Henson’s muppets.  Here it is.

So strap on your hightops, tighten up your fade, let your suspenders hang, and enjoy a radical ride, dude.
