    "You're no help," he told the lime. This was unfair. It was only a lime; there was nothing special about it at all. It was doing the best it could.

    license to ill was the soundtrack for my junior and senior years in high school :mrgreen:

    Now here's a little story, I've got to tell
    About three bad brothers, you know so well
    It started way back in history
    With Adrock, M.C.A., and me, Mike D.
    Been had a little horsy named Paul Revere
    Just me and my horsy and a quart of beer
    Riding across the land, kicking up sand
    Sheriff's posse on my tail cause I'm in demand
    One lonely Beastie I be
    All by myself, with nobody
    The sun is beating down on my baseball hat
    The air is gettin' hot, the beer is getting flat
    Lookin' for a girl, I ran into a guy
    His name is M.C.A., I said, "Howdy", he said, "Hi"


    He told a little story, that sounded well rehearsed
    Four days on the run and that he's dying of thirst
    The brew was in my hand, and he was on my tip
    His voice was hoarse, his throat was dry, he asked me for a sip
    He said, "Can I get some?"
    I said, "You can't get none!"
    Had a chance to run
    Pulled out his shotgun
    Quick on the draw, I thought I'd be dead
    He put the gun to my head and this is what he said,


    "Now my name is M.C.A., I've got a license to kill
    I think you know what time it is, it's time to get ill
    Now what do we have here, an outlaw and his beer
    I run this land, you understand, I make myself clear."
    We stepped into the wind, he had a gun, I had a grin
    You think this story's over but it's ready to begin


    Now, "I got the gun, you got the brew
    You got two choices of what you can do
    It's not a tough decision as you can see
    I can blow you away or you can ride with me" I said,
    I'll ride with you if you can get me to the border
    The sheriff's after me for what I did to his daughter
    I did it like this, I did it like that
    I did it with a whiffleball bat
    So I'm on the run, the cop's got my gun
    And right about now, it's time to have some fun
    The King Adrock, that is my name
    And I know the fly spot where they got the champagne."
    We rode for six hours then we hit the spot
    The beat was a bumping and the girlies was hot
    This dude was staring like he knows who we are
    We took the empty spot next to him at the bar
    M.C.A. said, "Yippe Yo, you know this kid?"
    I said, "I didn't.", but I know he did
    The kid said, "Get ready cause this ain't funny
    My name's Mike D. and I'm about to get money."
    Pulled out the jammy, aimed it at the sky
    He yelled, "Stick 'em up!", and let two fly
    Hands went up and people hit the floor
    He wasted two kids that ran for the door
    "I'm Mike D. and I get respect
    Your cash and your jewelry is what I expect"
    M.C.A. was with it and he's my ace
    So I grabbed the piano player and I punched him in the face
    The piano player's out, the music stopped
    His boy had beef, and he got dropped
    Mike D. grabbed the money, M.C.A. snatched the gold
    I grabbed two girlies and a beer that's cold.

    Big fan of the Beastie Boys.

    Favourite albums would be a close run thing between 'Check Your Head' & 'Paul's Boutique'.

    Had 'Check Your Head' playing in the car for the past week or so, awesome album. Keep forgetting how good it is.

    Gotta go with Ill Communication. I think it's a more refined, perfected version of Check Your Head. Second would probably be Hello Nasty.

    Best songs probably Sabotage, Flute Loop, Dub the Mic, Alive. Sure Shot.

    I can’t choose favorites when it comes to the Beasties.  I miss those boys so much.  Earlier this year, I saw Mike D do a weird little set in Brooklyn:

    Love the Beasties, saw them twice live, one of the best gigs I’ve ever seen was them on the Hello Nasty tour at Wembley Arena with the round revolving stage and Mix Master Mike providing the beats. They made so much energy from the crowd, insane! 

    Fave album, Ill Communication, followed by Check Your Head and Paul’s Boutique..

    I saw them a few days later in Worcester, MA.


    I miss those days so very much.

    Saw them in 1995 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Pretty sure we had the worst seats in the house but it was still a great show and a lot of fun.

    I recently started reading the Beastie Boys Book and am about 1/3 the way thru. Mike and Adam, along w/ friends and contemporaries, trade anecdotal stories like to the way the exchange rhymes on the records. The book reads like a history lesson in hip hop.

    I got the book for Christmas, and look forward to sitting down with it someday (If I ever finish the Faith No More biography... I really need to dedicate more time to reading).
