* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The "Fight For Your Right Revisited" video is sort of a very late subtle apology for their early days. In the video, [[spoiler:the past Beastie Boys, all played by actors, are confronted by what would be the future versions of themselves if they had stayed the same. The Future!Beasties are played by separate actors. Prior to this, the Past!Beasties had gone on a drunken rampage with loads of HeyItsThatGuy in between. When Future!Beasties challenge Past!Beasties to a dance-off, the Future!Beasties [[StealthPun end it quickly with a literal pissing contest]] before all the Beasties are hauled off by cops (played by the real Beasties).]]

* FaceOfTheBand: Highly averted, as MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock, are all equally prominent as band vocalists.
** They do not even appear in their new videos, "Fight For Your Right Revisited" and "Make Some Noise" (an edited version of the former).
*** They actually do appear at the end of "Fight For Your Right Revisited" as [[spoiler:the cops who arrested the past and future version of the group]].

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker: ''To The 5 Boroughs'' has a very split reaction. Some fans found it a good return to form, others found it forgettable.
** Their old hardcore punk material is either great or crappy, depending on who you ask.

** Back in the [=80s=], when the boys were picking up steam, a fairly popular novelty song called "Star Trekkin'" came out. The B-Side was a massive TakeThat towards the boys' style of rapping, calling them disgraces to rap and hacks. Through the years, though, the boys consistently put in references to StarTrek - and come the reboot, Kirk's a fan of the boys themselves.

** Possibly "5-Piece Chicken Dinner" on ''Paul's Boutique'': a CountryMusic interlude (sampled from ''Film/{{Deliverance}}'', no less) in the middle of the album, sandwiched between [[IntercourseWithYou "Hey Ladies"]] and [[RapMetal "Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun"]].

** In "No Sleep Till' Brooklyn", when the guitar solo begins, a ''guy in a gorilla suit'' is shown playing it, only for a more metal looking guitarist to rush in, shoulder push the gorilla away and resume the solo. That guitarist, ''Kerry King from'' ''Music/{{Slayer}}.''
