From swilling beer and swiping VW badges to universal respect and hanging out with the Dalai Lama, no one has taken a musical journey to rival that of the Beastie Boys. MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock are assured a place in rock's pantheon, and yet still they divide their time between saving the world and creating incredible records like Licensed To Ill, Ill Communication and Check Your Head.
This Pocket Essential reviews each of the act's albums and features exclusive interviews with friends and collaborators. The book also details the band's birth, their transformation from hard-core punks to break beat kings, and controversies ranging from the outrageous stage shows of their early days to their clashes with everyone from The Prodigy to The People's Republic of China.
