EDITORS’ NOTES

Linking timeless Zeppelin and Sabbath riffs to heavy-bottomed funk with hook-savvy producer Rick Rubin, the Beastie Boys made first-rate party music that defined the late '80s. “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party)” and “No Sleep Till Brooklyn” displayed an understanding of metal, while “Paul Revere,” “Time to Get Ill” and “Hold It, Now Hit It” swung and bounced furiously.
