Sabotage is arguably one of the greatest Beastie Boy songs, with an unforgettable bass hook from MCA that is as gravelly and rooted as his voice was. True to their early, NYC punk rock days, this song has power. The video clip below is so completely electric, and captures Adam, Adam and Mike at their best: tight, fun, and full of love for playing music. It brought tears to my eyes.
Their original Sabotage video is worth seeing, too, if you haven’t already. It is totally hilarious, and they must have had a blast making it.
