Beastie Boys - Make up your minds please

How Beastie Boys chose their name - CC_No_13_Dr_Jekyll_and_Mr_HydeBreeders of hip hop, punk rock and rap core from New York.

Later on a better story was devised – see hereafter – but it does look like the group name simply came from a flash of wit that perhaps was more instinctive than rational. In particular the desire to choose a crazy name seems to have been father to the thought – it had to be something in the style of The Young Aborigines or The Angry Samoans.

The better story, as promised: at a later stage it was suddenly reported that Beastie is an acronym for Boys Entering Anarchistic States Toward Internal Excellence. Pardon our French, but that is a lot of bull.

Active: 1979-present, USA
