Beastie Boys' star-studded, hilarious trailer: Fight For Your Right-Revisited

The Beastie Boys' trailer for "Fight For Your Right-Revisited" is a star-studded hilarity of a thing, as silly as you can imagine, funny and just plain great. It's to promote their next CD, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2, which comes out on May 3. I never met a Beastie Boys album I didn't like, and from the sounds of things, this will be no exception.

  1. Pacer!! Nearly as good as the Jensen Interceptor. And Ms Sarandon. Not looking forward to this at all. Really.

  2. Damn – that was cool. A who’s who of comedy. I just hope the new album isn’t weak sauce like “To the 5 Boroughs”, whose best part was the album cover artwork.

  3. Sorry, lost me the moment Will Farrell’s face appeared on screen. That man fills me with the “desecration of my childhood” rage over Land of the Lost and the Green Hornet.

    Wouldn’t have been so bad if either was actually funny.

    1. Aww… I thought Land of the Lost was particularly funny as far as Will Farrel movies go.

  4. I usually post cynical BB comments too, but I really don’t see how you can in this case.

    I understand disliking some of the actors (esp. Will Ferrell, though I personally like him when he’s in decent films e.g. *not* Land of the Lost – why anyone would even bother seeing that, though, I’m not sure) but this is so outrageously silly and self-deprecating (and well-made and sharply edited) there isn’t much to dislike.

    Although I do hope the full video makes more sense than this. Doesn’t have to be completely coherent, just a tiny bit coherent :)

  5. What I don’t get is how the Beasties spent most of the mid to late 90’s denouncing their earlier albums like Licensed to Ill and Paul’s Boutique as childish, derogatory, and promoting alcohol and drug use (not that there’s anything wrong with that in my book). Yet here they, back to kicking it live, no sleep till brooklyn style.

    Guess it was time to Check Your Bank Account?

    Don’t get me wrong, I loved the first few Beastie Boy albums, but when they started telling me that I shouldn’t like them, it was a little disappointing. I guess everybody grows up, gets disgusted by the things they did in their youth, then sometime later, wants to wax nostalgic.

  6. Yes, I am going to watch that several more times, even just for Will Arnet getting a beer can thrown at him in his six thousand dollar suit.

  7. Not going to even waste my time. Will Ferrell is proof to me that the gene pool needs fungicide.

  8. Sorry, but I just can’t help but chime in to defend “To The 5 Boroughs.” Aside from those unfortunate political raps, which also are exactly the only bad tunes the Boys have done, it’s a great album. It really is, dang it! (Oh, why did they put in those political raps?)

  9. I never met a Beastie Boys album I didn’t like

    You stopped listening at Check Your Head, then? Wise choice! :P

  10. About “To the five burroughs”…

    It has been the CD that is stuck in my car’s cd player since August. The cd player still plays it so my music selection is radio or Beastie Boys.

    I’ve even traveled on long road trips with it. Going to replace the deck soon though.

      1. Yes, yes I am. The car has been on the verge of collapse for a long time so I didn’t want to put money into a stereo. I finally broke down last night when I realized it was sapping my will to live.

  11. To all the TT5B-haters: do you complain about Public Enemy waxin’ political as well? I don’t think so.

    1. Public Enemy never waxed political contrary to how they had previously presented themselves. Same with KRS-One or Rage Against the Machine. 1986 Beastie Boys would depants and kick the the 2003 Beastie Boys in the balls while slamming a beer.

      The album isn’t COMPLETELY devoid of having a decent song – but the over all feel and theme were crap.

  12. Why does all current American comedy look like it was written by 10-year-old boys with ADD?

  13. Beastie Boys _&_ time travel? Sweet!

    Oh, and I thought TT5B was pretty good. Everything on it was better than Egg Raid on Mojo. Ugh, pisses me off every time that song pops up in my playlist.

  14. Will Ferrell ruins everything he touches. I guess this now includes the Beastie Boys.

    If you think Will Ferrell is funny, watch his movies while thinking to yourself, “Will Ferrell is not funny” and maybe you will see the light.
