Mashup Master Mylo the Cat again digs into the Beastie Boys catalog, using existing "Sesame Street" footage from the 1985 film 'Follow That Bird' to give us a scene-by-scene recreation of the '70s crime show spoof.
From time to time the internet is good for a genius mash-up video and that time has come once again. In this genius creation, Swedish Chef, Animal and Beeker throw down on some of the grooviest lyrics of all-time.
Remember that adorable commercial that took the catchy Beastie Boys song 'Girls' and re-worked it into a girl power anthem for engineering toys for little girls?
Well, apparently, the remaining band members didn't find it endearing, as they're currently suing for copyright infringement.
While fans may argue whether the Beastie Boys are more hip-hop or rock, one thing that’s unanimous: They never sold out. And if the late Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch’s will is followed, they never will. The ‘Fight for Your Right’ rapper’s last will and testament bans his music from being used in ads.
This is very poor timing. The Beastie Boys were slapped with a copyright-infringement lawsuit just one day before group member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch passed away. According to AllHipHop.com, Tuf America filed the lawsuit on May 3 claiming the group unlawfully sampled portions of Trouble Funk’s songs on two of their classic albums.
