As most of you already know, Jimmy Fallon is the least funny man on the planet. I know toddlers funnier. Re-toddlers. Luckily for Fallon, people that are actually worth their human existence still associate themselves with him by appearing on his piece of shit Late Night Show. For example, the Beastie Boys rolled through on May 25 to speak about the recent re-release of their 1992 classic Check Your Head. The above excellence resulted.
A Beastie Boy/Roots collabo…dope, right? But even in all its dopeness, the performance – which is unquestionably the best thing to ever happen on Fallon’s show — still can’t save the other fifty-seven unbearable minutes with this jack-momma.
Anyway, I’ve always been a fan of the Beastie Boys, and even more so after I read the Check Your Head segment of Brian Coleman’s Check the Technique (you should buy it), in which Coleman provides an in-depth description of the three-year recording process of the album. In my opinion, “So What’cha Want” is the best track off said record, and maybe from the entire, extensive Beastie catalog. The original video for “So What’cha Want” (seen below) has always been one of my all-time favorites, too…
By the way, Adrock is an unsung hero of hip-hop. He’s one of the illest. Ever. Don’t try to debate it.
