Two unreleased Beastie Boys tracks in collector vinyl set

A number of fans who ordered the Check Your Head collector's vinyl set have discovered a surprise bonus 7-inch record containing two NEW, unreleased songs in the set. The bonus album has not been found in every copy of the collector's set.

The first track, titled "Lee Majors Come Again," is rap over hardcore instrumentation. Listen HERE.

The second track, titled "B Boys in the Cut," is an a cappella. Beastie heads will recognize the end of the track as the "My New Name Is Larry" routine that the Beastie Boys have been throwing into their live show for the last few years. Listen HERE.

You can download the new acapella at http://www.beastiemixes.com/acappellas.php

They sound like old songs. The part where MCA explains the routine on the a capella sounds new.

I'm curious how many people did not get the bonus record.

Hearing new Beastie Boys has made my day, but now I am greedy for more! New album please!!!! :-)

Can you post mp3s? Thanks!

6:12 PM Hot Sauce said...

Sorry, no-can posty mp3s without permission. Mp3s are floating around out there, though.

For the record, both songs are NEW. The lyrics give away that they're current works. I'm transcribing them for Beastiemania.com.

In "B Boys in the Cut" Horovitz references the film Zoolander:

"I'm like Oscar the Grouch
Trashy, rockin' Derelicte, flashy"


In "Lee Majors Come Again," Yauch references Mix Master Mike and his "sneeze guard." MMM was not their DJ during the CYH period, and he's only used the sneeze guard since 2006.

Thanks for settling the old vs new debate. When are you posting the lyrics?
The new songs are great. I look forward to hearing 'B Boys in the Cut' with beats.

6:42 PM Hot Sauce said...

I need a few proofhearers to give me feedback on what I transcribed before I post them. If anyone thinks they can do that, holla at me.

6:49 PM Fittonia said...

What does Lee Majors think about the Beasties writing a song about him? Inquirying minds want to know.

7:01 PM Kevin said...

I'm sure Lee Majors is flattered.

@Hot Sauce: I'll help.

7:24 PM Hot Sauce said...

Email me, Kevin. The address is in the "About Mic to Mic" section.

7:52 PM Danielle said...

I hope the new album sounds like these songs. They are wonderful!

8:32 PM Jay said...

Beastie Boys still doing it!

1:14 AM BART said...

2:38 PM Coco said...

Wow...if these songs are any indication what we can expect on the new record I'm going to be very happy with the new album.
