Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Beasties Got What You Want

If you’re name happens be Ad-Rock, MCA or Mike D – 2009 is shaping up to be quite the year. The trio otherwise known as the Beastie Boys have already reissued two of their classic albums – Paul’s Boutique and Check Your Head – with Ill Communication to receive similar treatment later this summer. The trio will also be hitting the festival circuit hard this summer with appearances at Bonnaroo (holding down the pre-Phish slot on Friday night), Outside Lands, All Points West and Lollapalooza. Oh, and they also happen to have a new album on the way too, which is due later this year and will be called Hot Sauce Committee – yup that is evidently the real title.

On Monday night the trio stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to promote their latest reissue and to perform the classic album track So What’cha Want with The Roots providing live backing and absolutely nailing the songs samples, check it out…

  1. I dig the Roots on this but the Beasties sure seem to lack their signature energetic stage presence. Yauch seems pretty bored by the whole thing…

    With that said, it’s still a pretty good version (though I would’ve liked to see a deeper cut off the record. “Live at PJs” anyone?)
