Top 10 Songs of 2011:
3. Beastie Boys - Make Some Noise
The freshest beat of 2011 comes from the oldest hip-hop pros and rock n roll Hallafamas. This is Mike D.’s crowning achievement with the Beasties, the most fun anyone in the band’s had since the “Sabotage,” and, FINALLY, the band’s acknowledging that their early hits are a crucial, legitimate part of their legacy. They’re partying for your right to fight at long last. Once again they’re ahead of their time, this time by producing a summer jam for a movement that only got off the ground in the fall.
