A panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys, an audiobook as unique as the band itself.
 
Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom. Here is their story, told for the first time in the words of the band. Adam “ADROCK” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers. For more than thirty years, this band has had an inescapable and indelible influence on popular culture.
 
With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book upends the typical music memoir, featuring a collection of voices reminiscent of your favorite mixtape.

Quotes & Awards

  • This entertaining look at Beastie Boys history is as innovative and raucous as the band’s music. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
  • “The Beastie Boys have created a book, and it is preposterous.”

    A. V. Club

  • Beastie Boys fans will devour this book, as will anyone interested in the early days of hip-hop, the art/music/street life of New York City in the 1980s, and the alternative-nation zeitgeist of the ’90s. Kirkus Reviews
  • “A rambling and unruly stream-of-consciousness trip through more than three decades of uncensored memories—records, rashes, tours, graphic novels, and playlists. Madonna’s here, as is Guns N’ Roses, Dolly Parton, Johnny Ryall and the Egg Man…Overall it’s a box full of love letters to fans, founding member Adam Yauch, the early days of hip-hop, and dirty old New York. It’s a book that can’t, won’t stop giving.”
