Licensed to ill by Beastie Boys( Recording )

62 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit ihrem Erstling <<Licensed To Ill>> waren die Beastie Boys nicht nur die erste erfolgreiche weisse Rap-Gruppierung - sie landeten gleich auch das erste Nummer-1-Album in der Geschichte des HipHop. -- Das New Yorker Trio kam ursprünglich aus der Punk-Szene, war aber von Anfang an geprägt von der Liebe zum schwarzen Funk von Sly and The Family Stone und The Meters. Produzent Rick Rubin holte die Beasties 1985 zum eben gegründeten Label <<Def Jam>>, wo bereits LL Cool J und bald auch Public Enemy unter Vertrag standen. -- Obwohl Run-DMC mit <<Walk This Way>> bereits eine Bresche geschlagen hatten, sorgte die Mischung aus Heavy Metal und Rap auf <<Licensed To Ill>> für Kontroversen. Erst recht in Verbindung mit den frechen Texten, deren Humor nicht überall richtig verstanden wurde! -- Trotzdem: <<Fight For Your Right>> wurde zur ultimativen Party-Hymne, <<No Sleep Till Brooklyn>> zum Motto einer Generation die den Begriff <<Crossover>> erst noch erfinden musste. Drei Jahre später, nach der Trennung von Rubin, bewiesen die Beasties mit ihrem zweiten Album <<Paul's Boutique>>, dass sie keine Eintagsfliegen waren. (Quelle:, 16.10.2008)
