Fave Song #5

Beastie Boys – (You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)

From Wikipedia:

“Ironically, the song was intended as a parody of party and attitude songs, such as “Smokin’ In the Boys Room” and “I Wanna Rock.” However, the irony was lost on most listeners. Mike D commented that, “The only thing that upsets me is that we might have reinforced certain values of some people in our audience when our own values were actually totally different. There were tons of guys singing along to ‘Fight for Your Right’ who were oblivious to the fact it was a total goof on them.” The guitar solo was played by Slayer guitarist Kerry King.

Despite probably being the group’s most famous song, the Beastie Boys have expressed distaste for it. In The Sounds of Science liner notes, MCA jokingly says the song “sucks”, though they did not feel the album would be complete without it. The group has not performed the song live since 1987.”
