The now-rap-oriented Beastie Boys were signed to Def Jam in 1984. Schellenbach left, Rick Rubin took over as producer and the classic line-up of Mike D, MCA and Ad-Rock became permanent. A few singles followed, such as a contribution to the ''Krush Groove'' soundtrack named "She's on It", "Hold It Now, Hit It" and the double A-side "Paul Revere/The New Style", along with opening spots for PublicImageLtd., Madonna and a joint tour with Run DMC, Music/LLCoolJ, Whodini and the Timex Social Club.

* IndecipherableLyrics: The "Bouillabaisse" vignette "A Year And A Day". The only lyrics that are on the ''Paul's Boutique'' liner notes are "He goes by the name of Disco Dave" ...and that's at the end.

* CoverVersion: A HardcorePunk take on Music/SlyAndTheFamilyStone's "Time for Livin'" appears on ''Check Your Head'', and earlier on the same album there's the jokey "The Biz vs. [[Music/TedNugent The Nuge]]", which samples Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold" and has Music/BizMarkie [[WithLyrics sing new lyrics]].

Added DiffLines:

** Arguably "An Open Letter To NYC" as well, as the lyrics involve New York City recovering and staying strong after the 9/11 attacks.

Added DiffLines:

* BookEnds: ''Paul's Boutique'' slowly fades in with "To All The Girls"; then at the end of "B-Boy Bouillabaisse" that track is reprised and fades out.
** Bookend-within-a-bookend: In "B-Boy Bouillabaisse", the second vignette "Get On The Mic" and the next-to-last vignette "Mike On The Mic" are two parts of the same recording.

Added DiffLines:

* NotHyperbole: "The Sounds Of Science". They start with "Now here we go droppin' science" and then proceed to rap about actual scientists and scientific stuff.
