If you spent any time on the internet over the weekend you probably heard about the amazing way the Beastie Boys streamed their new album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. A video of a boombox rocking the album at midcourt of an empty Madison Square Garden certainly is ridiculously cool, but it's not really ideal listening conditions when you are talking about the first new album from the legendary trio in four years. Fret not lovers of Hot Sauce and their respective committees, Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA have offered up a stream of the album sans boombox and Knicks logo.
If you missed it over the weekend you can check out the boombox stream below, but when you're ready to dig in you'll want to go the Soundcloud route. Then most likely head over to pre-order the new album before the May 3rd release. And yes, they do name drop Ted Danson so you know your money is going to a good place.
