Waterstones Says

To the five boroughs and back: this is the definitive, insider testimony of the NYC threesome who transformed music for a generation.

MCA. Mike D. Ad-Rock.

For at least one generation, the Beastie Boys were everything music could be.

Smart, innovative, magpie-like in their interests, magnetic on stage, this unlikely trio of affluent young New Yorkers bonded the principles of rap with a raw, post-punk energy. Their debut album Licensed to Ill – brimming with strange, controversial frat-boy satire – launched a phenomenon that would continue for some 18 years, the group consistently reinventing their sound.

Dodging lawsuits, pioneering new standards of video production, founding a media empire through their Grand Royal label, the Beastie Boys were fundamental to the shaping of modern culture.

Now – with a style as distinctive and eclectic as their music - the Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir. Alongside their narrative history, the book presents rare photos, original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys' New York, mixtape playlists, pieces by guest contributors, and many more surprises. For the Beastie Boys fan, there can be no better tribute to their creative alchemy.

“My book of the year”

It’s full of the bullish, cheeky and frankly childish humour of the early Beasties with the talent, thoughtfulness and insight of the more mature output of the 90s and later. I’ve read it with glee, curiosity and... More

“Great present”

Bought this for my other half as he is a massive beastie boys fan so I haven't personally read it, but he loves it- great photos inside too. Also looks great on a coffee table
