And so this book proves to be a beautifully creative, powerful articulation of the legacy they leave. Adam ‘AD-ROCK’ Horovitz and Michael ‘Mike D’ Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the almost impossible-to-fathom overnight success of their debut studio album Licensed to Ill; that album’s messy fallout; their break with Def Jam, move to Los Angeles, and rebirth as musicians and social activists, with the genre-defying masterpiece Paul’s Boutique.

It's a love letter to friendship, to music (all of it), to New York City, to beat-up musical gear, to mixtapes, to exploration. This book may not be for everyone, as it's not the most organized autobiography you'll get your hands on, but the Beastie Boys were always trying to break the mold with their music, so it only makes sense they closed this chapter of their lives in the same way. Teeming with tour anecdotes, personal letters, playlists, comics and photographs—[ Beastie Boys Book] unspools the crew’s thirty-year run in the music industry and is appropriately massive.There were multiple narrators including John C Reilly, Rosie Perez, and Spike Jonze to name just a few.

Early band member Kate Schellenbach is given a chance to tell her side of the story of why she felt she was "fired" from the band and her observations of that time. Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys struck an unlikely path to global hip hop superstardom.

These little creative avenues rest alongside more heavy-duty descriptions of how particular songs were created, tours unfolded, label interactions played out and video production techniques. Its numerous short chapters are written mostly by Horovitz and Michael Diamond, complemented by some guest contributions.
