Beastie Boys “Hold It Now” (1986)

Album: Licensed To Ill

I always loved this song for all the Beasties' rhymes and the go-go feel to the tune. But I most of all loved MCA’s lines “I'm a killer at large and I'm on the loose / Pistol-packing, monkey-drinking, no-money bum / I come from Brooklyn 'cause that's where I'm from.” Just a stellar song and a few memorable lines from Yauch. One of my favorite early Beastie songs.
