We had a big idea for the music going into recording our last record, 'Hot Sauce Committee Part Two.' Every song would be made of fake samples. It was meant to be sort of a record collector's unattainable nightmare. . Listen: Link in bio. Read more: beastieboysbook.com . #beastieboysbook#beastieboys#hotsauce#hotsaucecommitteeparttwo

After 'To the 5 Boroughs,' we wanted to get back to playing instruments. It had literally been years since me, Adam, Mike and Mark had made music together, and we missed that spontaneous feeling of improvising with physical objects, away from a computer. We had no big concept or specific goal in mind for what we wanted to make; we just knew we wanted it to be live and direct. And fun. The end result was an all-instrumental record called 'The Mix-Up.' . Listen: Link in bio. Read more: beastieboysbook.com . #beastieboys#beastieboysbook#themixup

One day we met up to start thinking about what to make, and Yauch declared that whatever our next record was gonna be, it had to be an all-rap record. No instrumentals. I don't know what led him to that decision, but that was it. Me+Mike tried to argue with him about it-why did we have to decide now, why not just see what happened-but Yauch was not the wavering type. He was the most determined person I knew. Maybe it's something to do with him being an only child, and since Mike and I are the youngest of three-kid families, we're used to not getting our way. Or at least giving in to battles that weren't that important to us. I mean...it's always been so much fun making music together, what's the big deal? An all-rap record it is. And we got to work. .

When you get a sec...listen to the songs "Song for Junior," "Song for the Man," "Sneakin' Out the Hospital," "I Don't Know," and "Body Movin'."

And within their musicianship, they're not particularly skilled, nor are they particularly awful. Rather they embody all that is mediocre. Yet to my surprise, as well as that of the entire music journalist community, they've managed to create a new recording that some refer to as "pretty good." - Tim Willoughby, Syncopation (April 1994) .

Pass The Mic - Yauch was on a mission. He was standing in the middle of the live room at G-Son, directing traffic. We were several months into the recording of 'Check Your Head.' The process had been loose but productive. We had never made a records like this. We knew how to play and we knew how to sample and program and scratch and MC, but doing all of the above was uncharted territory. We didn't know what we were doing, in the best way possible. theere was a lot of experimentation. Which was what Yauch was consumed with that day. . Listen: Link in bio.

'Licensed to Ill' came out on November 15, 1986. Listen now - link in bio. . "Paul Revere" and "The New Style" had been released as singles. Both did well; they built on the success of "Hold It Now, Hit It," got played by the same mix shows and club DJs. By early February 1987, the LP had gone platinum. DJ Run had been proven correct. This seemed incredibly fast; we were barely out of high school. Being small-time celebrities in our little NYC nightclub world had been fun; getting a chance to make records was incredible; opening for Madonna and Run-DMC was surreal. But this was something else entirely. And nobody - us, Rick, Run, nobody -could have imagined what happened next. . Read more in Beastie Boys Book: beastieboysbook.com
