I still like the Beastie Boys' "Licensed to Ill" today! I played that tape over and over on a bus trip to Florida in April of 1987 during spring break! The lyrics are still funny! They mention White Castle hamburgers on just about every song that it's so funny! White Castle's sales must have tripled in 1986-1987 because of the Beasties'numerous mentions of them. Mike D, King Ad Rock and MCA were some funny fellows from Brooklyn on this album. The basslines on "Posse In Effect", "Slow And Low","Slow Ride", "Hold It Now", "Time To Get Ill", "The New Style," "Brass Monkey" and others have this smoothness to them and have you dancing in a sleazy and sneaky way! And have you moving your hands in crazy, wild directions too! I still dance to them today the same way at 34 than I did at 17! This was raw, no-nonsense hip-hop here and they really pulled it off! It's still catchy today! And the rock-based numbers "Rhymin' and Stealin", "Fight For Your Right to Party" and "No Sleep Til Brooklyn" are still solid, proving the Beasties could rap over loud rock guitars! Girls is so funny for its short 2 minutes and dorky music. A year before '86, they were the opening act on Madonna's tour. This album really made them big stars and that's why they're more in demand today for tours! Their new single from their upcoming 2004 album is so funky! They still have it a strong 2 decades later!!!!!!! "Licensed To Ill" is still a classic and still funny and funky today!
