Formed as a New York City hardcore band in 1981, Beastie Boys followed a 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 reveal their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers through their evolution as musicians and social activists over the course of their albums; and more. The band has had an inescapable and indelible influence on popular culture, and their book exhibits a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album. -- adapted from information supplied.

A sampling of things the Beastie Boys "got more rhymes than": Phyllis Diller, JD's got Salinger, Jamaica's got mangoes, Carl Sagan's got turtlenecks, [they've] got grey hairs, your whole crew.
