In celebration of Beastie Boys' 24th anniversary, Capitol Records has decided to pay tribute to their second (or third) best band ever: Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Adrock" Horovitz and Adam "MCA" Yauch - known collectively as Beastie Boys-will be lionized November 8th with the release of Solid Gold Hits. (No, the group is not breaking up.)
The infomercial-worthy 15-track compendium distills the NYC trio's storied career into an ADD-friendly digest format: Covering the Boys' first platinum-mining expeditions with "No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn" and "Fight For Your Right" through west coast detours "Shake Your Rump", "So What'cha Want" and "Sabotage," up to last year's return to #1 with the million-plus-selling To The 5 Boroughs' "Ch-Check It Out," "An Open Letter To NYC" and "Triple Trouble" -and all points between.
So whether you're reliving your own favorite Beastie Boys memories or sharing the Spike Jonze-helmed "Sabotage" or the Nathanial Hornblower masterpiece "Intergalactic" with a loved one for the first time, the audio and visual Solid Gold Hits experience is guaranteed to put the spice in your fruitcake this holiday season.
