    Not to mention Outside Lands and Austin City Limits. Hell, they were up against Tool at Lollapalooza and people were torn over the two.

    No, they certainly are not a "joke" band. Only an idiot would think that way. They are one of the few genuine creators of old school NYC rap in the mid eightees. Kanye West on the other hand is a fucking joke and hasn't done a fraction of what the Beastie Boys have accomplished in their almost thirty year history.

    Beastie Boys are about as novelty as Beck.

    Novelty and "a joke" are two completely different things. With that said, I would agree with your statement.

    I have a full on confirmation, heard it from 3 band members tonight: FOALS.

    One of the guys exact words, "yeah we are coming back around to the U.S. in April, we are doing a tour around Coachella". So there you have it, 2nd confirmation.

    That's not true, 'old school NYC rap' was around a nearly a decade before Beastie Boys even put out an album - they used to be a cheap punk-rock band before converting to hip-hop so I wouldn't even consider them 'genuine creators'.

    This is pretty accurate.

    Oh, and the Strokes aren't headlining over Arcade Fire.

    The Get Up Kids have a new album coming out in the Spring. One of Matt's other projects The New Amsterdams played in 05 or 06 and Spoon (which Rob is also in) played 2010. I say this is highly likely.

    Hopefully Guided By Voices, too.

    They put out their first album Licensed to Ill in 1986 (the year I was born), but they were releasing EP's since the early eightees. They maybe weren't one of the first rap groups from NY, but they definitely were one of the early pioneers.

    And Kanye West and Eminem have NOTHING on The Beastie Boys. This type of contemporary shit can't touch the rhymes of the three legends of the rap game.

    This is RIDICULOUS. I offer as evidence some of each's most "grand-standing" lyrics:

    BBs - Intergalactic: Well, now, don't you tell me to smile; you stick around I'll make it worth your while; got numbers beyond what you can dial; maybe it's because we're so versatile; style, profile I said; it always brings me back when I hear ooh child; from the hudson river out to the Nile; I run the Marathon til the very last mile; well, if you battle me I will revile; people always sayin my style is wild; you've got gall, you've got guile; step to me, i'm a rapophile: if you wanna battle you're in denial; comin from Uranus to check my style; go ahead put my rhymes on trial; cast-you-off-in-to-ex-ile.

    Kanye - Gone: Ah-head of my time, sometimes years out
    So the powers that be won't let me get my ideas out
    And that make me wanna get my advance out
    And move to Oklahoma and just live at my Aunt's house
    Yeah, I romance the thought of leavin it all behind
    Kanye step away from the lime-
    -light, like, when I was on the grind
    In the "One, Nine, Nine, Nine"
    Before, model chicks was bendin over or
    Dealerships asked me Benz or Rover, man
    If I could just get one beat on Hova
    We could get up off this cheap-ass sofa
    What the summer of the Chi got to offer an 18-year-old
    Sell drugs or get a job, you gotta play gyro
    My dawg worked at Taco Bell, hooked us up plural
    Fired a week later the manager count the churros
    Sometimes I can't believe it when I look up in the mirrow
    How we out in Europe, spendin Euros
    They claim you never know what you got 'til it's GONE
    I know I got it, I don't know what y'all on
    I'ma open up a store for aspiring MC's
    Won't sell 'em no dream, but the inspiration is free
    But if they ever flip sides like Anakin
    You'll sell everything includin the mannequin
    They got a new bitch now you Jennifer Aniston
    Hold on I'll handle it, don't start panickin, stay calm
    Shorty's at the door cause they need more
    Inspiration for they life, they souls, and they songs
    They said sorry Mr. West is gone!

    Eminem - Invasion: Here we go,
    I shoulda known
    I was bound to get pulled
    into some bullshit
    sooner or later
    you litte haters
    are too jealous of us to love us
    you hate it,

    then Obie's coming,

    the other 50 percent of it's whose color of skin it is
    But if you even considerin' takin' our label down,
    you better find our building
    and fly a fuckin plane into it
    But I ain't tryin to get to intricate into it,
    I'm just tryin to give you a little hint for your own benefit
    cuz then it's gonna get to the point
    where it escalates into some other shit,
    then I'm a flip
    then I'm a get to
    stompin' in my Air Force ones,
    won't be able to tell if its two purrs or it's one
    Cuz it's gone feel like so many feet kickin you,
    you think Nike just made these cleats into shoes
    I don't know what it is or what it could be,
    but I get a woody,
    when these pussies try to push me
    thinkin they gone put me in a position to pickle me
    yall tickle me pink,
    I think I'd just rather have Pink tickle me
    Hickory dickory dock tickety tock tickety,
    a little bit of the diggety doc
    diggety mixed with a little bit of the jigga j-jigga
    with a small pinch of Biggie,
    look at me,
    I'm just the bomb diggety

    They were a punk rock band before Licensed To Ill came out, which was originally intended to be a parody album of guys like Run DMC. Turns out they were actually pretty good. That's why they completely changed direction on Paul's Boutique, they didn't feel like fucking around anymore. That record is one of the best hip hop albums ever, but they were not pioneers of early NYC rap, they made fun of it.

    When it comes to lyricism/rhymes, to say they were better than Eminem is completely retarded.

    I am a huge Beastie Boys fan, but I have seen them many times when they weren't so old. I would only see them at Coachella if nothing at all interesting was happening at the same time.

    I've always thought the Get Up Kids would be great, like SDRE last year. Hopefully they'll put them in a tent though, the outdoor theater was way too empty for Sunny Day.

    lyrically, the beastie boys do not compare to eminem

    here are a couple favorite lines, as picked by the most hardcore fans on the official beastie boys message board:

    "I went to get a loan and they asked my race, I wrote down human inside the space"

    "so put a quarter in your ass cause you played yourself"

    clever but nothing really impressive in terms of lyrical technique.

    here's just one snippet from Em's first album:

    "my pen and paper cause a chain reaction
    to get your brain relaxing
    a crazy acting maniac in action
    a brainiac in fact son
    you mainly lack attraction
    you look insanely whack when just a fraction of my tracks run"

    that alone is a more impressive lyric than anything the beastie boys ever wrote. i'm not knocking them as a group, cause they definitely entertain and they've had a bunch of tight albums... also i think they were actually nominated for the rock & roll hall of fame. but rap lyrics wise, get real. think of how many rappers themselves proclaim eminem as the greatest lyricist ever. seriously, it's not a legitimate comparison.

    personally, seeing rakim would be dream come true.

    People seriously trying to talk about Beastie Boys lyrically? Half of their songs are about sandwiches and spelling out their name.

    Namaste

    Yeah, a butterfly floats on the breeze of a sun lit day
    As I feel this reality gently fade away
    Riding on a thought to see where it's from
    Gliding through a memory of a time yet to come
    Smoke paints the air
    Swirling images through my mind
    Like a whirlpool spin beginning to unwind
    And I stand at the edge cautiously awaiting
    As time slips by
    Carefully navigating by the stars in the sky
    And I sit
    And I think to myself
    And on the horizon, the sun light begins to climb
    And it seems like it's been so long since he shined
    But I'm sure it was only yesterday

    A cold chill of fear cut through me
    I felt my heart contract
    To my mind I brought the image of light
    And I expanded out of it
    My fear was just a shadow
    And then avoice spoke in my head
    And she said dark is not the opposite of light
    It's the absence of light
    And I thought to myself
    She knows what she's talking about
    And for a moment I know
    What it was all about
    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields
