I realise this may seem a bit bandwagon-jumpy; since the sad passing of Adam Yauch earlier this month there's been no shortage of tributes to the Beastie Boys. Which is fair enough, they were pretty great.
Here's the thing. It's probably not the most popular opinion, but I think the Beastie Boys were kind of overrated as a hip-hop act. Not bad, just not that great.
But as a hardcore, jazz and funk outfit, they were awesome.
