Day Twenty-Five: They're Beasties, Yes, but Only because They're Boys

Day 25 - A song that makes you laugh

Ah, the Beastie Boys. Not only are they proof that Generation X used to be cool, they're also living testament to the notion that white boys can do something hip - and there's nothing derisive about my statement whatsoever. I fondly recall evenings spent in the basement of one J.T. Yenter,* during which time there were discussions about -amongst much else- the best song on the band's debut album, License to Ill. My stance then, as well as now, is that No Sleep till Brooklyn wins hands down for no other reason than that the video features a motherfuckin' gorilla wailing on his motherfuckin' ax; and while that may not make me laugh, it does make me smirk.

Beastie Boys - No Sleep till Brooklyn

* "Don't you know who I am? I'm J. fucking T. of S.T. fucking C."
