Guess The Tune Game

Biography

Famous band Beastie Boys was formed in the late seventies in New York. Initially the musicians chose the name The Young Aborigines and began playing a hard-core punk. However two years later, when Adam Yauch joined the band, its name was changed into the well-known for everyone nowadays Beastie Boys. The Americans’ career started from the gig at Yauch’s seventeenth Birthday Party and the very first listeners supported and enjoyed the new-fangled group’s performance, so it turned out to be easier for Beastie Boys to move on. Later they were playing numerous concerts, and again and again they proved to the audience that the band had the very serious intensions. This way Beastie Boys found lots of fans, who had been looking for the group’s studio album.

However it was not the time for the album yet, but the band’s debut EP titled Pollywog Stew saw the light in 1982. A year later it was followed by an experimental Cooky Puss (1983), which became the band’s first hip-hop record. For many fans such a transition from punk to hip-hop became quite a surprise, which makes sense, actually. Nevertheless, that record got positive reviews and interested listeners: as a rule musical cocktails attract attention of lovers of all styles that were absorbed by the brand new one. By 1986 Beastie Boys prepared the material for the long-awaited debut long play Licensed To Ill. Since the moment of its release a huge number of its copies - more than nine millions - were sold all over the world! Does anyone need other proofs of the fact that Beastie Boys’ first album turned out to be extremely successful?

In 1989 the musicians’ discography was enlarged by the record Paul's Boutique that got double Platinum Status, and three years later Beastie Boys released not less fascinating Check Your Head. New York far-outers were confidently moving forward – the concerts always had full houses, while the albums were called-for and were bought up in practically no time. In the middle of nineties Beastie Boys made a statement that they wished to keep on developing: the album Ill Communication appeared in 1994 and it peaked at the very top of Billboard 200. Hello Nasty was issued in 1998 and it managed to repeat the success of its predecessor. Sure thing that not every band or performer had an opportunity find a place on the top of that chart at least once. Beastie Boys did it three times in a row: To The 5 Boroughs of 2004 also was the first on Billboard 200, above all its competitors.

The group released an interesting instrumental album The Mix-Up in 2007 and it won a Grammy Award in the nomination Best Pop Instrumental Album. Beastie Boys do what many people only dream about: the musicians do what they really love and enjoy that and get the acknowledgment of listeners. That band created its own unique style. That achievement is totally worth respect by itself, while the fact that Beastie Boys’ sound was enjoyed in the whole world stands for their originality and music distinctiveness. Now listeners should rejoice and celebrate: the legendary Americans prepared fresh material for us. Their newest studio attempt titled Hot Sauce Committee Part Two saw the light in 2011, and music lovers have reasons to suppose that this long play will be as fascinating as band’s all previous works.
