    I fuckin love the beastie boys man.
    I went and saw them at the river stage in '99 when I was 16. I still can't believe my parents let me go. The ticket said the show started at 7, so being a noob I got there at 7. The supporting acts were Biftek, The Avalanches, and The Resin Dogs - before any of them had really taken off.
    Being 10m from Mix Master Mike while he was doing his thing has to be one of life's highlights, not to mention the boys themselves. Being of virgin lungs, there were so many joints being passed around and I didn't really know what was going on so I just kept passing them on. I ended up getting a lung infection for the following two weeks, and I remember coughing up a lump of crunchy brown shit in the shower that was so solid, I had to mash it down the plughole with my foot (yes I'm sure it was phlegm). Still worth it though. There were two girls next to me making out for the whole show, and even at 16 I was kinda creeping on them a bit.
    My favourite album is Pauls Boutique, because you can listen to it even after one million times and still hear new things. It just makes me feel like a rad c*** whenever I listen to it, like I know something other folks don't. Kind of how people who ride steel bikes look at other people I guess.
    I think Hello Nasty is pretty under-rated as an album. I still listen to it a lot now.
    When I was a bit younger, my favourite was Mike D but now I'm more of an Adrock fan. I used to have several beastie's t shirts but they are all threadbare now. I cut the van out of the blue van/aloha mr hand shirt and I use it as a drinks coaster now.

    My most hated song is Sabotage. I don't know why, I think it's over-rated. So many better songs off that album. Sureshot, Get it together, Root Down. Fuck. How can you even talk about the beastie boys without being psyched.
    I'm pretty sure I have most of their albums except for Some Old Bullshit. I have Licensed To Ill on vinyl and listen to it every so often. The song I listen to most is Somethings Gotta Give, off the Check Your Head album.
    My favourite lyrics all come from Paul's Boutique.
    I got lucky I brought home the kitten, before I got lucky I slipped on the mitten - from Car Thief.

    You're all mixed up, like pasta primavera - I say this to the girl at work all the time and she loves it.

    Good solid thread man. I will post in here a lot.

    YEAH! This has regular periods of high rotation on the P!N20 sound system. I love it when the bass drum kicks in on Time For Livin'. Got it on blue vinyl - gave the black vinyl bootleg to a friend who was none the wiser

    I remember riding to my g/f's house and listening to "check your head" for the first time on tape whilst sitting in the sun outside her place waiting for her after school... that album is full of good memories.

    I went through a phase of Beastie Boys when I was about 16, listening to alot of punk music, but also hanging out with guys who loved hip hop, Beastie Boys were a great transitional group for me.
    They also were a hit at high school parties, where most of the angriest punk and hip hop was frowned upon by those with less teen angst issues. Thankfully, Beastie Boys released quality numbers like Intergalactic which, with its dance beat, really turned those parties attended in paddocks turn into some next level event, for which places like Labertouche have never recovered.
    I can appreciate Beastie Boys for what they are, but I don't believe I've put on one of their cds for well over 5 years.
    My favourite song would be Benny And The Jets, it makes me laugh.
    Summer of track bike.

    I think that was the tour when I saw them in Hobart. I was bummed The Avalanches didn't come down as I was into El Producto, but seeing the B Boys for the first time was just incredible - still one of the best gigs I've been to.
