CNN.com - The Beastie Boys mouth off - Oct 4, 2004

I'm proud to say that the first cassette I physically bought in a store was "liscense to Ill". Though I didn't feel their last album as much as the majority of people did, the Beastie Boys still operate on the edge and don't give a fuck. This CNN interview is gold. Among the highlights, is this response to the question "Will you be playing your olderhits in concert?":

"We go way back," Diamond says. "We do some songs from 'Toys in the Attic,' 'Rocks,' 'Dream On.' "
Yauch chimes in: " 'Destroyer' (referring to a Kiss record)."
But it's not just about recycling old hits.
"We also do some of our newer songs that we feel really proud of like, 'Dude Looks Like a Lady,' " Diamond says.

Why can't other rappers or any artists, esp. the under 40 crowd, have this much fun in an interview?
