ABOUT BEASTIE BOYS BOOK:
A panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys, a book as unique as the band itself—by band members AD-ROCK and Mike D, with contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more.

Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam “AD-ROCK” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the almost impossible-to-fathom overnight success of their debut studio album Licensed to Ill; that album’s messy fallout; their break with Def Jam, move to Los Angeles, and rebirth as musicians and social activists, with the genre-defying masterpiece Paul’s Boutique. For more than twenty years, this band has had a wide-ranging and lasting influence on popular culture.

With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside the band narrative you will find rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys’ New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises.

‘The Goldbergs’ Fight For Their Right to Party with the Beastie Boys at MTV’s Spring Break

‘The Goldbergs’ Fight For Their Right to Party with the Beastie Boys at MTV’s Spring Break

The Beastie Boys circa 1986.

ABC-TV’s hit comedy The Goldbergs lather on the suntan oil, cut the sleeves on their T-shirts, and load up their coolers to visit sunny Ft. Lauderdale, FL, to fight for their right to party on MTV’s Spring Break on Wednesday, April 4 at 8 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. CST.

“I vividly remember watching The Beastie Boys party on MTV Spring Break with my brother, Barry,” said Adam F. Goldberg, Executive Producer, The Goldbergs. “MTV’s Alan Hunter made it look like a 24-hour non-stop celebrity-filled party. It became our dream to go. My grandfather had a condo at a retirement community in Ft. Lauderdale and every spring break we’d go visit him. Pops was always the life of the party and we begged him to take us, but my parents flat out refused!”

“I’ve been a die-hard fan of The Beastie Boys ever since their first album took my school by storm when I was entering middle school,” said Goldberg. “I wanted to be a Beastie Boy. After all, they’re members of the tribe that meant even kids like me could be rap stars. I was so obsessed that I have countless hours of video footage where I lip sync every song from (the Beastie Boys’) “License to Ill” and “Paul’s Boutique.” I took on the nickname ‘Ad Rock.’.I saw MTV Spring Break as my one chance to meet them, but of course my smother, Beverly shut down any chance of me going.”

“MTV’s irreverent brand, in stark contrast to the socially conservative stuffiness of the times, had no better showcase for all that was rude and out of control than Spring Break, said Hunter reflecting on his time at MTV Spring Break. “And, no better court jesters than the Beastie Boys to make the poor parents of the day even more convinced that MTV was truly the devil’s workshop.”

Hayley Orranthia and Troy Gentile on ABC’s ‘The Goldbergs’

“THE GOLDBERGS” is a series based on recreations of Adam F. Goldberg’s real-life experiences of growing up in suburban Philadelphia in the 1980s.

Just like that first MTV Spring Break which aired in 1986, from Daytona Beach, FL, with MTV VJ Alan Hunter and the Beastie Boys, The Goldbergs have their expectations set high and are ready to visit Florida for a similar party.

In this particular episode older brother Barry Goldberg (Troy Gentile) devises a plot with his sister, Erica (Hayley Orrantia) to visit their grandfather in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and attempt to have the craziest spring break ever. They quickly realize that their grandfather’s condo is in a retirement community with grumpy “old farts”. When Barry and Erica rebel, they end up getting arrested for going for a night swim and stealing a knish from the snack bar.

Amazingly, this absurd story is actually 100-percent true. Adam Goldberg’s brother is interviewed at the end of the episode about his run-in with the police.

“It’s a legendary story in our family. My brother went for a nighttime dip and was heating up a knish when a dozen officers stormed the pool,” said Goldberg. “They were told there was at least 20 kids partying, because he was playing The Beastie Boys’ ’No Sleep ’Till Brooklyn’ on his boom box.”

The Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep ‘Till Brooklyn” is prominently featured throughout the episode as the party anthem.

Like all Goldbergs episodes, the incident is perfectly recreated. In the episode, after the police arrest them, Pops bails them out. The two Goldbergs children realize that bigger than Spring Break is the bond they have with their grandfather

“There’s only one thing harder than becoming an adult,” the narrator states in the episode. “That’s growing older. But when you start to slow down, the people who do love you the most will make sure that life continues to be a party.”

Adam F. Goldberg and Doug Robinson are executive producers. The episode is produced by Adam F. Goldberg Productions, Doug Robinson Productions, and Happy Madison in association with Sony Pictures Television.

Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch Making ‘Fight For Your Right’ Film With Elijah Wood & More!

Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch Making ‘Fight For Your Right’ Film With Elijah Wood & More!

beastie-boys-300x241

Beastie Boys

Beastie Boys’ Adam Yauch is to write and direct a short film, set to star Elijah Wood, about the band’s 1987 music video ‘(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!)’.

The film ‘Fight For Your Right Revisited’ will feature not only Elijah Wood but guest roles by Danny McBride, Seth Rogen, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly and Jack Black, according to Sundance.org.

The short film will premiere at the Sundance Short Film Festival, between January 20-30, in Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.

The Beastie Boys had been gearing up to release their new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 in 2009, when Adam Yauch had to undergo emergency surgery for a cancerous tumor. As a result, the group delayed the album’s release indefinitely. But according to an announcement on the Beasties’ website, there’s a new album coming very soon, though it won’t be the album they originally intended to release.

From the official Beastie Boys website:

“Although we regret to inform you that Hot Sauce Committee Part 1will continue to be delayed indefinitely, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be released on time as originally planned in spring of 2011.”
