Beastie Boys classic going vinyl

Remember Beastie Boys’ debut album, “Licensed to Ill?” Of course you do. If you don’t have the set on wax yet, here’s your chance. The seminal collection will be reissued on vinyl in honor of its 30th anniversary on Oct. 14.

“Licensed to Ill” originally hit stores Nov. 15, 1986, and over time hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album claims Beastie Boys hits such as “No Sleep till Brooklyn” and “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party).” Last year, the set hit the 10 million sales mark and was certified diamond.

Beastie Boys followed “Licensed to Ill” up with seven more albums, but after co-founder Adam “MCA” Yauch passed away from cancer in 2012, surviving members Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond decided they would stop releasing new music as the Beastie Boys.

Beastie Boys’ ‘Licensed to Ill’ Track List:

“Rhymin & Stealin'”
“The New Style”
“She’s Crafty”
“Posse in Effect”
“Slow Ride”
“(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)”
“No Sleep till Brooklyn”
“Paul Revere”
“Hold It Now, Hit It”
“Brass Monkey”
“Slow and Low”
“Time to Get Ill”
