** ''Hello Nasty'': In "Putting Shame In Your Game". (There's also a reference to the cover art in "Body Movin'", where MCA raps about being "packed like sardines in a tin". Call it "Album Cover Art Drop".)

* {{Nerdcore}}: Not exactly, but they've referenced ''Franchise/StarTrek'', amongst other Sci-Fi films, in their raps. The reboot films returned the favor, with "Sabotage" featured prominently in ''Film/StarTrek'' and ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'' briefly featuring the Music/FatboySlim remix of "Body Movin'".

And then "Sabotage" returned in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'' as part of a plot point.

One of the tracks on ''Boutique'', "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun", featured live instrumentation, with MCA on bass and Ad-Rock on guitar. Their follow-up album, ''Check Your Head'' (1992), saw the Boys pick up their instruments again (Mike D on drums, Ad-Rock on guitar, MCA on bass), accompanied by Mark "Money Mark" Ramos-Nishita on keyboards and longtime collaborator Mario "Mario C." Caldato Jr. as engineer and producer. This was another NewSoundAlbum, seeing the Beasties engage in a game of musical MixAndMatch, putting together hip-hop with a ton of samples (including the one they're most proud of, one from "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" by Music/BobDylan), jazz- and funk-inspired jamming, instrumentals and a punk rock cover of "Time for Livin'" by Sly and the Family Stone. ''Head'' also marks a crucial point in the band's evolution, being the moment where they left behind their earlier over-the-top {{Badass}}-ery: while they would still boast from now on, they would be more blatantly humorous and not discuss ingesting of every controlled substance known to man, sex, and wacky fratboy hijinks. They also found the time make their label Grand Royal Records an actual label (one of their first signed bands was Music/LusciousJackson, started by their old bandmate Kate Schellenbach) and publish ''Grand Royal Magazine'', credited with coining the term "mullet" and giving the Music/SneakerPimps their name.

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.

[[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.
