So they may be a little older and their hair may have greyed, but the Beastie Boys have lost none of their rabble-rousing cheek. Saying that, their latest single Triple Trouble, off their current album To The 5 Boroughs, harks back to old skool hip hop with its retro electro party beats and continuous scratching. The real give-away is their looped sample of The Sugarhill Gang's percussion intro to Rapper's Delight.
Sampling this classic is bound to win over both young and old hip hoppers, but the fun doesn't end there. The Manhattan trio are on top form with their tag team rap antics and hilarious joke lyrics such as "You see I walk like Jabba The Hut, with the style so new y'all be like what?".
Apart from Ad Rock's cringing Mockney accent throughout the track, Triple Trouble is a real winner. Not only are the Boys back in town, they're there to kickstart the party.
