On my List


In celebration of Beastie Boys' 24th anniversary, Capitol Records has suddenly decided to pay tribute to their second (or perhaps even third) best band with a greatest hits record: 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.

This sick ass 15-track compendium distills the NYC trio's storied career into a very friendly friend format: Making itís way from the “No Sleep 'Til Brooklyn” and “Fight For Your Right” antipasti, through the “Shake Your Rump, “So What'cha Want” and “Sabotage” primi piati, right into last years secundi piati To The 5 Boroughs' “Ch-Check It Out,” “An Open Letter To NYC” and “Triple Trouble” – and all courses in between.

So whether you're reliving your own favorite Capitol Records memories or sharing the “Sabotage” or the “Intergalactic” with a loved one for the first time, the audio and visual Solid Gold Hits experience is guaranteed to put the nuts back in your fruitcake this holiday season.
