Let me set the stage for you:
The year is 1987, President Ronald Reagan is waging his war on drugs, and America is setting their yacht/coke parties to the mellow sounds of The Beach Boys. Thanks to several film soundtracks, Diamond Dave, and the soft-rock hit "Kokomo," The Beach Boys were experiencing a surge of popularity that would later lead them to their acclaimed appearances on Full House.
Meanwhile, Hip Hop was making its climb to secular popularity. The Fat Boys were a pioneering group in "beat-boxing," or hip-hop's answer to The Beach Boys angelic, so-cal harmonies. Clearly a contest was needed to decide which would be more culturally relevant at the time: Douche-bag yacht pop or non-threatening popular hip-hop. This battle was set up in the form of a duet between the two groups.
The Beach Boys were a pop group from southern California that achieved much of their success in the 1960's. The genius of songwriter/producer Brian Wilson took them to the heights of commercial success and later critical success with efforts like the breakthrough Pet Sounds. But then poor Brian cracked a bit and spent a decade lying around in bed, eating cheeseburgers, and snorting coke. By 1987 he was in recovery by allowing the evil Dr. Landy to control his thoughts and actions. Dennis Wilson had tragically drowned in 1983. This allowed king-douche Mike Love to take over the band. By the time of this duet the Beach Boys were Mike Love, a dude from the Mommas and the Papas, a producer who worked with Charles Manson, and a Reaganaut touring band.
The Fat Boys were a hip-hop group from Brooklyn. They beat-box. I can't remember if they were actually fat.

So Who Wins?
