About Beastie Boys
The Beastie Boys first got together in 1981. After supporting Madonna on the 1985 Virgin Tour, they went on to play with the likes of Run DMC and LL Cool J on the groundbreaking Raising Hell tour, where many listeners first learned that the band was white.
Their fist album, Licensed to Ill, became the fastest-selling debut for Columbia and the first hip hop record to break five million in the 80s. After two other successful studio albums in the 90s, Check Your Head and Ill Communication, the Beastie Boys went on to win the Video Vanguard Lifetime Achievement Honour at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.
Recent albums Hello Nasty and To The 5 Boroughs have showcased both a diversification of musical influences and a more mature lyrical output, while maintaining their fun loving style.
