4Ever Songs: Beastie Boys ‘Fight For Your Right’

The Beastie Boys helped establish hip-hop as the dominant force we know today with their emphatic 1986 debut release Licensed To Ill. The album was a breath of fresh air, a hybrid of the underground New York hip-hop scene and the punk movement, with the Beastie Boys channelling an attitude reminiscent of Joe Strummer among many others.

That album is one of the finest debut offerings of all time. It spawned splendid songs like ‘Brass Monkey’, ‘The New Style’ and ‘No Sleep Til Brooklyn’, but, controversially it would be ‘Fight For Your Right’ the most played song from the album that the group would be least proud of recording.
