Bad Boys

Even a few lame political songs can't suh-suh-stop the Beasties

Rarely is there a theme to the Beastie Boys' songs, which more often employ nonsensical rhymes to cover the mass of junk that interests them: Jewish deli food, Japanese kitsch, pickup basketball, Saturday morning cartoons and Miss Piggy. The similarity of their tastes and their longtime friendship, which goes back to their teen years, has made them a durable hip-hop entity.

"When we're not touring, we're recording," Yauch says. "I'd say we spend the majority of our lives together. Sometimes, I see the band more than my family. We do get pissed at each other. But most of the time we get along pretty well. We're just having a good time doing what we're doing."

The most unlikely rap survivors: The Beastie Boys are, from left, Mike Diamond, Adam Horowitz and Adam Yauch.
