The Beastie Boys were always more than just a hip-hop outfit – in fact, 25 years ago they recorded a punk album that just got a re-release.
The band just released 1995’s Aglio E Olio to streaming services – a team-up with Suicidal Tendencies drummer Amery ‘AWOL’ Smith for eight high-speed hardcore songs that clock in at just 11 minutes.

2020 has been a big year for the Beastie Boys – they released a Spike Jonze-directed documentary in April and will put out a 20-song retrospective album titled Beastie Boys Music next month.
