The '''Beastie Boys''' were a famous rap trio that was around from 1979 to 2014, enjoying critical and commercial success throughout their career, helping invent and popularize RapRock (alongside Music/RunDMC), playing an important role in the popularization of hip-hop as a whole (partly by being white), being one of the few rap groups whose members play instruments, being one of the main influences on AlternativeRock before they even actively tried to court the genre's fans with their later work, and being the first white rap group to gain massive success.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* RepurposedPopSong: {{Averted|Trope}}. They never licensed their music(and the few times any of their songs were used illegally, they quickly shut down the offenders), and MCA was GenreSavvy enough about this that he explicitly stated in his will that his music may never be used for commercial purposes. Mike D and Ad-Rock both wholeheartedly supported this statement.

* SignatureStyle: Shooting some of their music videos (ex: "Shake Your Rump") with fisheye lenses. Today, it's become a bit of a DeadHorseTrope to the point where anyone who utilizes the technique is more likely than not homaging the Beastie Boys.

* ParentalHypocrisy: ""(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" has this line: "Your pop caught you smoking and he says, "No way!" That hypocrite smokes two packs a day!"

Adding Michael "Mix Master Mike" Schwartz as DJ and returning to New York after nearly a decade in California, The Beasties churned out ''Hello Nasty'' (1998), which added an [[TheEighties eighties]] electro-funk influence to the huge MixAndMatch of genres from ''Head'' and ''Ill'', and sneaking in some Brazilian, Latin, lounge and dub influences. This album's big hits were the Rachmaninoff-sampling "Intergalactic", "Body Movin'" and the minimalist "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Three MCs and One DJ]]". The first two had their own requisite humorous videos, "Intergalactic" being a parody of kaiju films and "Body Movin'" parodying the film ''Danger: Diabolik'', famous as the last episode of MysteryScienceTheater3000. The Boys won the MTV Video Vanguard Award in 1998 and "Intergalactic" won the VMA for Best Hip Hop Video in 1999. They used both appearances to make lengthy, political speeches about how Muslims aren't terrorists (for the former) and the debacle that was Woodstock 1999 (the latter). They also took the time to appear in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Hell Is Other Robots" in 1999. However, MCA was unavailable at the time of the recording, so he was voiced by Ad-Rock.

** Mike D: Higher-pitched, with a slightly nasal tone(as an example, he sings the lead vocal on "Sabotage".) ** Ad-Rock: The highest-pitched of the three, with an even more nasal tone.
