Here's that Beastles album you've been waiting for!


Last weekend, I let you know that a new Beastles album was forthcoming from djBC, who was reprising his mid-2000s project to mash up the Beatles and the Beastie Boys, which disappeared thanks to legal threats from EMI. Now, djBC writes,

The third and final Beastles album, Ill Submarine, is now out. 20 songs mashing the Fab Four with the B-Boys.

Some folks seem to be discovering this stuff for the first time, which is cool. I guess that makes sense- its been about 9 years since the first album came out- 2004! and 6 or 7 years since "Let It Beast." It seems like ages ago.

For those who are catching up, Silence Seven from Beastiemixes.com is kindly hosting the first two albums of Beastle mixes as well.

Dedicated to the memory of Adam Yauch.

I've been listening to this all week now. I suggest starting with No Sleep Til the Sun Comes Up, Brrthday and Twist That Train.

The Beastles : Ill Submarine (Thanks, djBC!)

  1. Cory – there’s an error in the link to the first albums. It’s listed as http://beastiemixes.com/remixer.php?id=138%20as%20well. Got to remove the “as well.”

  2. “his mid-2000s project to mash up the Beatles and the Beastie Boys, which disappeared thanks to legal threats from EMI.”
    And perhaps a rush of good taste to the brain.  “Beastie Boys” considered as music?  I don’t think so.

    1. I think they’re one of the greatest bands of the past 3 decades. Apparently you never heard Paul’s Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication or Hello Nasty?

      1. I NEVER thought they’d do something as good as Check Your Head again until Hello Nasty came out. I was floored.

    2. Based on Fight For Your Right to Party and Hey Ladies, I thought I HATED the Beastie Boys.

      Then I heard Pass the Mic on a mix tape that came free with a magazine and I discovered an entire new world of music.
