Don’t Judge A Book…

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

If there ever was truth to the age-old saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover,” it would definitely apply to the Beastie Boys.  Not only are the world-renowned musical talents, but they are lyricists extraordinaire.  However, if you were to pass them by on the street, you would think, “dweeb.  dweeb.  and older dweeb.”  But once the music starts, and they start spitting out their rhymes, yikes!  whodathunk.  Especially Adam Yauch aka “MCA” (the one in the brown overcoat in the YouTube clip below).  In the clip from their performance on Jimmy Fallon, MCA is just lurking in the background, looking like a creepy, old pedophile.  But once he starts his rhymes, “Wow, if I didn’t know them, I wouldn’t have seen that coming.”

So, if there ever is a vote for, “A band whose image/age doesn’t fit their music,” I would say the Beastie Boys would beat out The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen hands-down.
