Song Of The Day - "Finger Lickin' Good" by Beastie Boys

From their not-so-humble beginnings as a truly awful Hard Core band who I saw as an opening act on Big Audio Dynamite's first U.S. tour...to the hardy partyers who opened for Madonna on her "Virgin" tour...to the Brooklyn Dust masters who came into their own with "Paul's Boutique" and Spike Jonze videos...to the elder statesmen of Hip Hop on the cusp of releasing their first new record in too many years...the Beasties have managed to invent and reinvent Rap and Hip Hop in their own image many times over. This one comes from "Check Your Head" and I love the use of the Fifth Dimension sample from "Aquarius/Let The Sunshine In."
