Beat Goes On

Album: Give The Drummer Some (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker explained to Musicradar.com how Cypress Hill came to be involved on this track from his debut solo album: "Blink had been in Europe playing Reading and Leeds, and we were hanging out with Cypress Hill, just choppin' it up. I told them that my album was almost finished, but then I stopped myself in my tracks when I realized that I couldn't have an album without Cypress Hill.
    I've known those guys for almost 10 years. They were one of the first rap groups I ever listened to. We got in the studio and I played them a track I had with a bunch of rock guitars. They loved it and jumped all over it. So cool. It was one of the easiest songs to do. I'm really thrilled to have Cypress Hill on a record with my name on it."
