Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: Aside from the title of the album itself being an example, ''Some Old Bullshit'' includes a piece of hate mail dating from their hardcore punk years that, among other things, calls them "a pathetic, feeble imitation of Music/MinorThreat and The Necros". The letter may have also been included for the ItWillNeverCatchOn factor - the writer concludes by giving them the advice to "please save face and bow out of this mess as gracefully as you can", which is a bit ironic in light of how successful the group became a few years later.

* LongRunner: They've been together for more than 30 years, making them one of the oldest rap ensembles around.

* BadToTheBone: "Sabotage" has been heard in every other movie since it came out, including not one, but ''two'' Creator/ChrisPine movies: the 2009 ''Film/StarTrek'' reboot and ''Film/ThisMeansWar''.

[[Film/StarTrekBeyond Their music will be considered "classical" in the 23rd century.]] [[Series/{{Futurama}} And don't worry about MCA's death. Their revived heads will reunite and be touring in the 31st century.]]

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]].

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