Earlier this Spring when the Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the great, inimitable ?uestlove put together for the Hall of Fame people this mix of the Beasties’ most beloved tracks. Questo decided to let this one out in honor of the late Adam Yaunch’s birthday.

Questo on the mix:

what you are listening to was a quickie lunch break demo i had to put together for the rock & roll hall of fame staff (basically the heads of Rolling Stone) and the Beastie Boys and the gazillion prospects of guests who were approached to be part of the performance.
which means i had to lay out a very thorough map: i took the characteristics of the 3 Beasts and arranged the songs that i felt best fit them (keeping their demand that “Fight For Your Right” have NOTHING to do with their moment in the sun.
i begged all 20 parties involved to lemme create something THEN start nitpicking if its not satisfactory.
in my head i wanted to include ALL fan highlights…
it was lost in the mix of a gazillion magical mp3s i had so i figured it was apropos to whip this baby out in honor of the late great Yauch’s bday passing this week
i think its kinda funny.
dig.
