Remember when the Internet was aghast at the first Star Trek Beyond trailer, soundtracked with the Beastie Boys hit “Sabotage”? It might not have fit well with many people’s idea of boldly going (and thankfully the film was much more traditionally Trekky than that trailer), but it turns out it really works for Star…
When I think of how little we know about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, it kind of boggles my mind. All the toys are from the first third of the movie, and we haven’t seen most of the old characters And we’ve only seen a few of the new aliens.
Mario Wienerroither is keeping himself busy these days and just sent us his new video. This time, he took the music off Fight For Your Rights (To Party), a classic song by the Beastie Boys, transforming the original insane party into an even more insane and awkward act of vandalism.
Yesterday, the New York Times ran a tour of the amazing Brooklyn townhome Beastie Boy Mike D lives in with his family. The house is super cool, but most of the stuff inside is either one-of-a-kind or wildly expensive, by non-famous-person standards. Except for the amazing Brooklyn-themed wallpaper that Mike D designed…
As part of an upcoming special issue that pays tribute to Adam Yauch—aka MCA—by looking at the visual history of the Beastie Boys, Juxtapoz magazine conducted interviews with the artists behind the group's memorable album art. And while this three-minute highlight doesn't go into as much detail as the magazine will,…
Everything about this clip is wonderful. As we mourn the loss of Adam "MCA" Yauch, Portland dad James Winters gathered his kids and his nephew to pay tribute to the late Beastie Boy with this recreation of the music video for "Sabotage."
Yesterday, we lost Adam Yauch, better known as MCA, one of the original members of the Beastie Boys, the favorite band of young joyriding James Kirk. Let's pay tribute to him today with the giant robot vs. Cthulhu music video he directed, for their song "Intergalactic."
I'm going to miss you, MCA. I grew up with the Beastie Boys. Literally, figuratively. They were the soundtrack of getting older.
Is it just me or does 5000 fps really make everything more awesome?
A quick YouTube search will pull up countless video reenactments of this Beastie Boys jam by suburban bros. It's an anthem for losers—a hip hop relic realized with the brute force of cock rock. Thank Rick Rubin.
Personally, I'd rather play Chris Cunningham directing Aphex Twin, but it's probably for the best I'll never get that opportunity. If you have $750 knocking around, the Beastie Boys are selling their three 11.5-inch figurines from their latest music video.
You know your Friday is going to be awesome when you hit play on a video and the first thing you see is Groover playing the initial notes of the Beastie Boys' Sure Shot on a flute. Rock on!
The new Beastie Boys music video is pretty awesome, is it not? But considering it was directed by Spike Jonze, that's not at all surprising. Here's what (the controversial) Final Cut X and about four days' time is capable of, via the fine effort from the folks at Wonderful Creative. [Vimeo via Jezebel]
Here's something for all your Supermarionation fans out there. Longtime Beastie Boy collaborator and Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze has directed 11 minutes worth of action figures teaming up with the Abominable Snowman to battle a vast anti-Beastie Boy conspiracy. Also, the undead show up for reasons…
Your average rap video, this is not! In the 11-minute course of Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win, the plasticized trio gets shot at, shoots back, escapes in a submarine, takes Santigold waterskiing, and kills many bad guys.
Last night, the Beastie Boys premiered the full-length 30-minute version of their short film, Fight for Your Right Revisited, in which basically every famous person ever guest stars and the Beastie Boys meet their future selves.
The Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" may be Young James Kirk's theme song, but it also goes great with Battlestar Galactica, as this shot-for-shot recreation of the "Sabotage" music video using BSG clips proves. [YouTube]
With Star Trek out on DVD today, we're reminded of the awkward insertion of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" into the 24th century. But was it as random as it seemed, or just returning an overdue rap favor?
Perhaps my favorite Star Trek in-joke is this video explanation for the Beastie Boys' song "Sabotage" playing during baby Kirk's wild ride. Turns out Shatner had a problem with the word "sabotage." [Topless Robot]
