* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While the Beasties insist that ''Licensed To Ill'' was a StealthParody, some still take the material seriously and wonder if the official explanation is a ParodyRetcon (the boys ''were'' big partiers at the time, and were known to perform with a giant inflatable penis onstage). We might never know for sure.

** Back in the [=80s=], when the boys were picking up steam, a fairly popular novelty song called "Star Trekkin'" came out. The B-Side, which used the same beat and cadence as Star Trekkin', albeit modified to be a mockery of ''Licensed to Ill's'' beats, 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.

* BaseBreaker: ''To The 5 Boroughs'' has a very split reaction. Some fans found it a good return to form, others found it forgettable.

* 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]].

** Their old hardcore punk material is either great or crappy, depending on who you ask.
