Two conflicting and shitty cliches… Which one’s right? Well… Neither really. Nope, neither really hit it on the mark….

So what’s the truth? Well! Funny you should ask! I’ve made a video that further explains this, and I do it by referencing early Beastie Boys material to make my points…


Yea, that early Beastie Boys music was kinda…. well…. Let’s just say they’re like a good wine that gets better with age…

Here’s one of the first tracks (and below that is a track they did from the 90s, where they changed completely, and they were stayed true to their vision, musically…


First: a track from their, ‘Licensed to Ill,’ album, called, ‘Fight for your Right.’


And then?

A few years later they came out with albums like, ‘Check Your Head,’ and ‘Ill Communication,’ and this track is definitely my favorite: ‘So What Cha Want,’ a perfect hybrid of rock and hip hop… It definitely didn’t have the same aesthetic of that first track, as you can easily see… Much more lo-fi… And they stil have that same, ‘we don’t give much of a shit,’ kinda feel… But frat boys? I wouldn’t call ’em that… Not with this one… I don’t think most people would:



Well, that’s all for this post. Fuck terrible outmoded cliches from 50 years ago that just keep getting passed down from generation to generation… Hand-me-down-cliches… Fuck em. All of em. There are always alternatives.
