One of my favorite of these videos was for their track "No Sleep 'til Brooklyn," off of their smash hit album Licensed to Ill. It was definitely a track that I spent years screaming aloud to while driving around with my friends, listening to the album so loud that I have possibly lost a good deal of my hearing due to those crazy nights.
Apparently I'm not the only Beastie Boys fan, because the alt-country rockers from Vancouver, Virginia Leaves, reposted their take on "No Sleep 'til Brooklyn" on their Soundcloud page in honor of MCA. It kicks off the verse with some Americana-inspired acoustic guitar, but they really let the chorus rock, as could only be done with this song. All with a bit of southern rock flair. After all, Vancouver is in southern Canada.
Here's to you MCA; we miss you!
