---> At some point after ''Ill Communication'' came out, Mike got hit in the head by a large foreign object and lost all of his memory. As it started coming back he believed that he was a country singer named Country Mike. The psychologists told us that if we didn't play along with Mike's fantasy, he could be in grave danger. Finally he came back to his senses. This song ("Railroad Blues") is one of the many that we made during that tragic period of time.

--> We became obsessed with throwing eggs at people. The Beasties were staying at the Mondrian hotel, on the ninth floor. Summer was starting and every day all these people would line up in front of the Comedy Store across the street. It was just open season. Eventually they got a very diplomatic letter from the hotel management, like “We’ve had some reports of things falling out of your window. If there’s a problem with your window, please let us know.” Then we started driving around in limos, throwing eggs at people. That’s how we came up with the song “Egg Man.”

** In 1999, the Boys recorded a full-length country album called ''Country Mike's Greatest Hits'' as a Christmas present for friends and family. MCA's commentary in the liner notes is priceless:

** By the time the Boys were touring in their 40s they had substituted some of the more misogynistic lyrics of the ''Licensed to Ill'' era to better reflect where they were in life, which led to the alteration of the line "MCA's in the back 'cause he's skeezing with a whore" (in "No Sleep Till Brooklyn") to "MCA's in the back with the mahjong board."
