Beastie Boys- Ch-Check It Out

April 28th, 2004

This is three minutes and ten seconds of classic Beastie Boys, showcasing their usual vocals over sounds and samples that have come to be expected of them over the years. It's fun, it's catchy and it's loud. It's also very refreshing against an all too similar sounding mainstream backdrop. The first single from their first album in six years 'To The Boroughs', it is surely the ideal track to accompany with yet another entertaining music video. Throughout the entire song is a looping sample which you're likely to have playing over in your head a lot this summer and a great drum break. The lyrics aren't saying too much, but then what lead single does. It says something when a band can keep doing the same type thing for something like twenty years, and remain fresh with it.
