Thirty years ago, the world was introduced to three guys from New York City by the names of Adam “Ad-Rock” Horowitz, Adam “MCA” Yauch (RIP), and Michael “Mike D” Diamond… otherwise know as the Beastie Boys. November 15, 1986 is a day that would forever moralize this group with the release of their debut album, License To Ill. You may recall songs such as “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party),” “No Sleep Till Brooklyn,” and “Brass Monkey.” These songs were each greater than the next, but a song that will forever live in the WIFFLE community is “Paul Revere.” This is because the Beastie Boys would use a verse in this song that went “I did it like this, I did it like that. I did it with a WIFFLE ball bat.” In honor of this thirty year anniversary the Beastie Boys will be having a deluxe vinyl re-release of the album!
As announced by the Beastie Boys on Twitter the other night, you can pre-order the deluxe vinyl re-release of License To Ill now! The album is due out October 14, 2016.
