** The original idea behind the sessions that led to ''Aglio E Olio'' was to write and record few songs in the HardcorePunk genre to include on what was to become ''Hello Nasty'', much like how the previous two albums included some brief throwbacks to their earlier sound. They ended up coming up with more songs than planned, so rather than throw any out or leave them for {{B Side}}s, they split all the hardcore songs into a separate EP. It is a little hard to imagine these songs fitting in on that album.

** Stories differ on who instigated it or how serious the idea was, but there was discussion about firing Mike D when they signed with Def Jam because his image wasn't as hardcore as the others.

* CreatorBacklash: The Beasties haven't performed "Fight For Your Right" live since 1987, think it "sucks" and are annoyed that its ironic, sarcastic nature was lost on its intended target of fratboys. Also, they've apologized repeatedly for their earlier sexism and homophobia.

** The well-known example of RhymingWithItself in "Pass The Mic": Mike D meant to rhyme "commercial" and "rehearsal", but in the take they used on the album, he accidentally repeated himself, resulting in "Everybody's rapping like it's a commercial / Acting like life is a big commercial".

* ThePeteBest: John Berry (guitar) and Kate Schellenbach (drums) left before the band signed with Def Jam and switched from punk to rap.

** Some positive ExecutiveMeddling occurred over the name of ''Licensed To Ill'' - the label wouldn't let them use the IntentionallyAwkwardTitle ''Don't Be A Faggot''. The band of course now consider this a further bit of OldShame about that album.

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The outtakes from ''Licensed to Ill'' have never been officially released, including a cover of Music/TheBeatles' "I'm Down" and a song called "The Scenario," though the latter did make a brief appearance in the Creator/ChristianSlater movie ''Film/PumpUpTheVolume''. * OldShame: According to the Beasties themselves, ''Licensed to Ill''. Their early [=EPs=] and singles also fit into this category, given that they eventually re-released them on a compilation entitled ''Some Old Bullshit'' [[note]]They seem to at least have some affection for their early song "Egg Raid On Mojo" though - they included a lyrical reference to it in "Egg Man", occasionally played it live even after becoming primarily a hip-hop group, and it's one of two songs from this period to appear on the band-curated compilation ''Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science'' (the other one being their namesake song)[[/note]]. They also regretted their party-boy antics when they hit it big, and cut out misogyny in their later albums. * OneOfUs: See above The [[HumongousMecha Giant Robot]]-[[{{Kaiju}} Space Monster]] battle in the video for "Intergalactic". They also later changed the official lyrics of "Ch-Check it Out" to use the Klingon reference from the clean version, and the below music video is one giant one for ''Franchise/StarTrek''.
