Beastie Boys – Ch-Check It Out (Live on Letterman in 2004)

The Beastie Boys had a number of stand out appearances on Late Night with David Letterman. This is one of them.

It’s 2004. To The 5 Boroughs is released, and the hiatus is off. “Ch-Check It Out” is the first single off the record, and the Beastie Boys give this amazing performance on Letterman, a loosely choreographed romp through the streets of New York which ends with them on stage at Late Night. Brilliant and entertaining.

All you Trekkies and TV addicts / Don’t mean to dis, don’t mean to bring static / All you Klingons in your grandma’s house / Grab your backstreet friend and get loud!
