Editors’ Notes Hello Nasty was The Beastie Boys' fifth album, released a dozen years after their classic debut. It was their last that featured a huge hit single: the wildly funky "Intergalactic." It debuted at the top of the charts in seven countries, earned them two GRAMMY® Awards, and was their first project with new DJ extraordinaire Mix Master Mike. Sonically, it's among their most experimental and wide-ranging works, with something for everybody: see the Latin funk instrumental "Song for Junior," the throwback old-school dedication "Three MCs and One DJ," the dub reggae jam "Dr. Lee PhD," and the wistful bossa-jazz ballad "I Don't Know." Of course there's also plenty of the goofy pop culture references and high-octane tag-team rhymes that we all know and love, plus a dizzying array of obscure samples blended with the live instrumentation. While it's not the Beasties' greatest album ever, it's arguably their most unique, and an essential piece in their lengthy discography.
