Best Beastie Boys Songs


The Top Ten

1 Sabotage

Best rap song ever. Beastie boys you are amazing and never get old.=)

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.

2 Fight for Your Right Fight for Your Right

I know same here it is just like me this song is hard and it wants teenagers to exactly do what this song has said the mix of rap and rock it is so awesome and energetic GO Beastie Boys! - michaelwalton

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

Not a good song, they made it as a satire, and anybody view likes it without knowing that, should not vote for it

3 So What'cha Want So What'cha Want

One of the Greatest Hip Hop songs ever - Glauberson

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

4 No Sleep Till Brooklyn

The Full Blooded Italians theme

This song is so good should be Number 4 or 5 not 6 it's so good it's not there best but should be a lot higher love the guitar and rap

This song should be number 4 or 5 it's so good please vote this song great singing guitar solo drum and bass

Love this song this one should be number 4 not 6 please vote this one up love the guitar solo its just amazing - mneilan

5 Intergalactic

Really catchy and it easily gets stuck in my head. And that's why I love it

I don’t even like rap but this is really great

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.

6 Make Some Noise

Simply Amazing

Amazing love it should be number 2 or 3 vote this song please amazing new song great start backing into music - mneilan

To me, show they Beastie Boys never loose their style. Beautiful.

best video

7 Paul Revere

so catchy

Paul Revere Was A Great Patriot Which Has Nothing To Do With Why I Like This Song

This song is sick

tells how the b-boys met in a goofy little rap/rytme thing. - nikkicherry15

8 Brass Monkey

This is certainly one of the top5 hottest is not their #1 song of all times.

This song is funny - Jackal2272

9 Sure Shot

'Cause you can't you, y' won't, and ya don't stop - 'Cause you can't you, y' won't, and ya don't stop -'Cause you can't you, y' won't, and ya don't stop - (Insert name here) come and rock the sure shot. - OmegaRanker

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!

This song is just a sure shot.

10 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

The Contenders

11 Hey Ladies
12 Car Thief

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

13 Gratitude

Great bass riff is just so catchy. This song is just everything that's good about the Beastie Boys.

Come on! The riff in it is just so sexy! Don't pretend you don't like it!

14 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.

15 Right Right Now Now
16 Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun

One of the most rock out and pure bad ass b boys songs with tons of memorable lines.
“Expressing my aggressions through my schizophrenic verse words“

Way too low on the list. This is easily a top 10 BB song.

" 24 is my age 22 is my gauge! "

17 Rhymin' and Stealin'

This song helped found the modern rap-rock/metal tone. Great rhythm, catchy drums and a talented guitarist.

The best. I love it

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.

"Well I shot those suckers and I'll shoot the rest! "

18 High Plains Drifter
19 Get It Together

This is the best hiphop song I've ever listened to

This is an amazing song, Q-Tip and The Beastie Boys make a fantastic trio!

I'm like Ma Bell- I gots the Ill Communication - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

20 The New Style

How is this not top 5!? Such a great song with clever lyrics

This should be in top ten, I love the end

21 Girls

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.

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. )

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.

22 Lee Majors Come Again

Cool and stuff underrated song but very good

Should be higher, personal favorite of them

23 Root Down

In my opinion their best hook


24 Egg Man

I'm the Egg Man, Taxi Driver, I'm the Egg Man. - JCHOW

25 Super Disco Breakin'
26 B-Boy Makin' With the Freak Freak
27 Song for the Man
28 Triple Trouble
29 Pass the Mic

Good very good I like

I'm the A-D-R-O-C-K, definitely the best song. Has no swearing, a good tune, and the beastie boys are rocking a block party till y'all hair turns grey.

30 Too Many Rappers

One of the coolest rap ever heard... Nas is there and Beastie boys are there too... what else can you ask for?

31 The Sounds of Science
32 Johnny Ryall
33 Ok
34 The Move
35 Crawlspace
36 Time for Livin'
37 Slow and Low
38 Body Movin'


39 Professor Booty

Sick ass song! No cutting inbetween each others raps or switching on and off like their normal badass stuff. Adrock kicks it, then Mike D dopes it up, and then MCA just goes hard!

40 Hold It Now, Hit It

A touchstone of rap dynamics - relevatory

41 Flute Loop

This is the best

42 An Open Letter to NYC


43 She's Crafty

The beat... the riff...

One of my favorite songs

44 Stand Together
45 Sabrosa
46 Alive
47 Here's a Little Something for Ya'
48 Jimmy James
49 I Don't Know

BEAUTIFUL song by MCA. Not their usual genre so it makes it even more special. Love it. May he rest in peace R.I. P MCA, my fave beastie
