Watch Every TV Comedy Star You Can Think Of in the Beastie Boys' New Video (NSFW)

Danny McBride, Seth Rogen and Elijah Wood in 'Fight For Your Right (Revisited)'We're not sure how they were able to do this, but the Beastie Boys just released a video with pretty much every major TV and movie comedy star you can think of, leaning heavily towards the TV side.

At least the reason why they did it was a good one: Believe it or not, it's been 25 years since the Beastie Boys tore up MTV with their classic music video '(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)' Yes, that sound you hear is the arthritis in your knees crackling at the thought that Beasties have been around for that long, much less that it was a quarter-century since you heard that song in high school.

To celebrate the anniversary of the song and their debut album, 'Licensed to Ill,' the Beasties created a 30-minute music video called 'Fight for Your Right (Revisited),' which strings together tracks from their soon-to-drop album, 'Hot Sauce Committee Part 2.' A red-band trailer for the video rocketed across the interwebs last week, but the full video wasn't released until yesterday.

The NSFW video and more after the jump.

Danny McBride, 'Lopez Tonight'Thanks to a fortuitous flight to London during which he met Adam 'MCA' Yauch of the Beastie Boys, Danny McBride finds himself a part of the band's forthcoming new video. On 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), McBride talked about the video, which is a follow up to the 1987 smash '(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!).'

'Make Some Noise' features McBride as MCA, as well as Seth Rogen and Elijah Wood to round out the on-screen representations of the Beastie Boys themselves.

In featuring a clip from the video we saw the star-studded cast that McBride was talking about. Ted Danson, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Rainn Wilson, Jason Schwartzman and Jack Black were all there, many of them featured in a "dance contest from the future."

Listen All of Y'all, This is 'Battlestar Galactica'

Mash-ups are always an invitation to a good time, but this one is particular fun because it actually matches its counterpart particularly well. They either have a surgically implanted eagle's eyes or more time on their hands than Father Time.

Some crazed genius media nut out there has combined the shoot-em-up goodness of 'Battlestar Galactica' with the shoot-em-up goodness of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage."

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Nov 6th 2009 2:00PM

Since its debut in 1975, 'Saturday Night Live' has been synonymous with bringing pop music to the late-night, weekend masses. Now in its 35th season on NBC, 'SNL' has indeed become the holy grail for musicians.

Over the years, many memorable performances have graced the 'SNL' stage. In this list, we select the 7 best. Some were energetic, some were raw and emotive, some were quirky and fun.

But mostly, they were all daring for broadcast television at the time.

Beastie Boys do public access - VIDEOS

by Adam Finley, posted Aug 19th 2007 4:10PM

hello nasty, beastie boysApparently, in 1998, when the Beastie Boys' album Hello Nasty was released, the boys did a half-hour "informercial" for the CD that aired on public access in several markets. Someone uploaded the show in three parts, and I've placed them below for your enjoyment.

The show is an amalgam of different infomercial and public access-style bits: a psychic, a man who promises you can make money by doing nothing, an exercise guru, and a juice machine. MCA, Ad Rock and Mike D appear throughout the videos, and I must say if they ever get sick of the music scene they wouldn't have any trouble doing comedy. The fellas have natural comedic timing and instincts, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise for anyone who has seen their videos.My favorite video is number three. There's just something about using car polish to clean a banana that cracks me the heck up.

More on ego trip's The (White) Rapper Show

by Julia Ward, posted Dec 19th 2006 8:05PM
ego trip the white rapper showMore information has been released about VH1's latest reality outing - ego trip's The (White) Rapper Show. What we reported to you in early November remains the same - the show, which premieres on January 8th, is a reality competition which pits lily white MCs against one another in search of the next Eminem or Adrock.

Now, you wouldn't expect another lame reality show from the team behind ego trip, would you? For the uninitiated, ego trip was a New York-based hip-hop magazine that started back in 1994. The publication covered underground sounds with wit and attitude. They were the "arrogant voice of musical truth." While the magazine folded years ago, ego trip remained at large through a series of books - ego trip's Book of Rap Lists and ego trip's Big Book of Racism. They partnered with VH1 on ego trip's Race-O-Rama and TV's Illest Minority Moments. Given their track record, it would be a huge disappointment were The (White) Rapper Show to suck.
