Beastie Boys on being stupid

In this lost 1985 interview, the "three bad brothers," Ad-Rock, MCA (RIP), and Mike D discuss opening for Madonna, how they once got arrested for dropping a "motherf%$ker" on stage, why they were the only white rappers on vinyl, and deciding to name themselves Beastie Boys, because it was the "stupidest" name MCA could think of.

They're sending folks on an Interwebs scavenger hunt, of sorts, to find video clips of unreleased footage of the band recording the album. READ ON →
