Veteran rappers the Beastie Boys have blasted American President GEORGE W Bush on their forthcoming album, their first in six years.

The SABOTAGE trio have spent the last couple of years recording the heavily political TO THE 5 BOROUGHS - due for release later this year (04) - and one song slams Bush's foreign policy and calls for voters to kick him out of office.

The New Yorkers' disc also includes a track called AN OPEN LETTER TO NYC, which comments on the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
