8/8 From the Soundboard – The Beastie Boys

From the Soundboard is a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On Wednesday, August 8, regular programming is back and we’re going focus on one of Hip Hop’s innovative groups, The Beastie Boys.

“As the first white rap group of any importance, the Beastie Boys received the scorn of critics and strident hip-hop musicians, both of whom accused them of cultural pirating, especially since they began as a hardcore punk group in 1981. But the Beasties weren’t pirating — instead, they treated rap as part of a post-punk musical underground, where the D.I.Y. aesthetics of hip-hop and punk weren’t that far apart.” [Stephen Thomas Erlewine – All Music Guide]
