There’s a gold mine of classic hip-hop, rock, metal and other awesome videos from yesteryear in the MTV Yearbook and elsewhere on the Web. With all these excellent visuals at our disposal, we’ve decided to roll out some favorite nostalgia blasts to the face for the Clutch Vault, which is best experienced with a friend.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced today that the Beastie Boys will be immortalized at the Hall’s home in Cleveland in next year’s class that includes Guns N’ Roses and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Great company. We’re particularly fond of the white Brooklyn-born rapping trio, though, so today we salute them. In 1994, “Sabotage” became the lead single off the group’s triple-platinum album “Ill Communication” and the Spike Jonze-directed video, to say the least, is a memorable, highly entertaining, hardcore ’70s throwback. You’ve seen it before. Now see it again.
