The History of the Beastie Boys

The History of the Beastie Boys Formed in 1979 in New York City, the Beastie Boys were originally a hardcore punk band. But it was when they started getting into hip hop in the early '80's that they found their early success. Their 1986 debut was the 1st rap album to debut on the top of the Billboard chart. Since then, the Beasties haven't been afraid to mix different genres and experiment with sampling and other audio techniques, which has helped to grow their audience outside of the rap world. In this WatchMojo.com video, we take a look at the history of the Beastie Boys.
