Make Some Noise

Album: Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2 (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • American Hip-Hop trio Beastie Boys succeeded in making some noise with this first single from their eighth studio album, Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 2. After the song was leaked online prematurely, the band responded by putting it on their website too. Mike D wrote on the band's blog: "This wasn't really part of the plan, but since this track is out there we wanted to let you hear it here first, or maybe second. Enjoy."
  • The track finds the trio spitting rhymes about parties on the left and right over brash instrumentation including some cowbell. The whole package is reminiscent of the Beasties' '80s material such as their anthem "Fight For Your Right To Party."
  • The song's music video is taken from the Beastie's short film, Fight For Your Right Revisited, a 30-minute retelling of the events that followed the famous "Fight For Your Right to Party" clip. Amongst the well-known faces you might recognise in the star-studded visual are Will Ferrell, Elijah Wood, Steve Buscemi, Ted Danson, Seth Rogan and Jack Black.
