Best Beastie Boys Songs


The Top Ten

1 Sabotage Sabotage

This song has so much energy to it!

Easily there best, ^^ one of my all time favorite Rap/Rock Songs.

The Maestro is my all time favorite but not mainstream enough. This song is original in every way. Top three for me.

There was no band in this era that was as innovative as the Beasties. They put a sasquatchian size footprint on urban culture throughout all of the 90s. 'Sabotage' was their debut single off of their 4th studio album and solidified them as the kings!

this song is so awesome! its exactly how I feel every morning!

Amazing song should be number 1 or 2 by far vote this song up

This song was written to make fun of the frat boys that listened to the Beasties. So yeah, even the guitar solo is a joke

4 So What'cha Want So What'cha Want

Love this song. Actually, I love all of their songs. I love the beginning, the middle, the end. EVERYTHING about this song is great. If I were stuck in a cave, and I could only have two things, it'd be a CD Player and any Beastie Boys album because they are all great. R.I.P MCA - Cyzero

Dark, heavy and delicious. Everything I love in a song... It's "Sweeter than a cherry pie with ready whip topping ironically enough!

Most Classic song from beastie boys ever men! I started Hip Hop with this song my favorite by far yeah

Sick song... Really close though

Should be 2nd behind Sabotage. No-one can argue with Sabotage but this isn't far behind.

I agree this should right behind Sabotage and Fight for your Right should be behind this. Their new music should up near the top as well.

If you want to battle your in denial
Coming from Uranus to check my style
Go ahead put my rhymes on trial
Cast you off into exile.

This is the best song by beastie boys no excuses

9 Ch-Check It Out Ch-Check It Out

This song is what hip-hop should be. All three drop in and kill their rhyme. This is song bumps in any car. You all should ch-check it out.

Most explicit one, has a great beat and wonderful rhymes

10 Sure Shot Sure Shot

Yeah right. This is pure Beastie Boys. We are not going to be having a top ten without this one.

This should be number one. Never tire of this tune!

The beats alone make this song a classic.

12 Shake Your Rump Shake Your Rump

I'm listening to this right now. This so so amazing it predicted the future sound of music and has amazing lyrics and flow.

"I got more rhymes than Jamaican's got mangos"
"Like Fred Flintstone driving around with bald feet"
"Make another record because people say they want more of this, suckas saying they can take out Adam Horovitz."

This is so underrated.

13 Car Thief Car Thief

Masterpiece. Dope synth samples create an melanchonic view on the late 89s American lifestyle.

14 Rhymin' and Stealin' Rhymin' and Stealin'

The pistol is loaded. I shot Betty Crocker. Deliver Colonel Sanders down to Davy Jones locker. Rhymin and Stealin in a drunken state and I'll be rocking my rhymes all the way to Hell's Gate.

All I really want is Girls
I'm a girl listening to this song yet I still love it. It's actually pretty funny. Just listen to the song. (Hope there's a sample for you guys to listen to because this song is still epic no matter who listens to it. )

Such a good song. I love this song and I'm a girl. Is this song sexist? Maybe. But, it's funny and it's a pretty good song. One of their best I think.

This song makes me laugh each time it's catchy, the xylophone is fun, the lyrics are fun, it's just a fun song not to be taken seriously

Nothing but a xylophone, a snare drum and some kick ass lyrics! Very few, if any, acts could ever accomplish that feat.
