The Beastie Boys dropped a surprise bomb at center court in Madison Square Garden on Saturday morning, playing their entire new album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two through a boombox on the Knicks basketball court.
If you slept through the 7:30am PST showtime, never fear – we’ve got the entire stream for your listening enjoyment right here:
Fans seem thrilled with the new sounds so far, with references being made to Paul’s Boutique and Ill Communication. Time will tell if it tops the mid-career highwater mark of Hello Nasty, but either way, it’s fantastic to know that cancer didn’t permanently derail the Beastie Boys’ momentum.
Pre-order Hot Sauce Committee Part Two through the Beastie’s official site, and we’ll see you on May 3rd!
