– You ready?
– Yeah. – [rapping] Now here’s a little story
that I got to tell about three bad brothers
that you know so well. It started way back
in history – with Ad-Rock–
– MCA– – And me, Mike D. [cheering] – Hello, everyone. – What we’re gonna do
right here is go back. Way back.
Back into time. -WOMAN: The Beastie Boys.
-MAN 1: The Beastie Boys. -MAN 2: The Beastie Boys.
-MAN 3: The Beastie Boys. – In the early ’80s, everyone
in our scene was in a band. We wanted to be rappers so bad. But we were mediocre at best. – [rapping] Now hit it, hop,
just don’t stop…. – Most rappers hold their rhymes in little pieces of paper, right? – We went from being famous
in a 14 block radius to being on tour with
Madonna and Rick Rubin. – The shows kept getting
bigger and bigger. – We morphed from
making fun of party bros to actually becoming
those dudes. – We were burning out. – I just didn’t even recognize the person
that I had become at that point. – Yo, hold up!
It’s not over yet. – Go! – There’s not that many times
in your life when you realize
you’re in a new chapter. – WOMAN: The Beastie Boys are back after a six year absence. – We changed how we
wanted to be as people and friends. – We got inspired,
and while experimenting, we found our voice. – Woo! – Really? High five? – Yeah. Yeah, it’s comin’ back, Adam.
It’s comin’ back. – Adam Yauch was
the driving force; the one that not only
gets themselves going and doing great things, but says
we should all do this. Yauch was
that type of friend. ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ Who does know? ♪ – Yauch, Mike and I have spent
more time with each other than with our own families. – It’s not like all of it was easy,
or highlight film, but who gets to work
every day with their two best friends? ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ I don’t know ♪ ♪ I don’t know ♪
