610-Beastie Boys-(You Gotta)Fight For Your Right(To Party.)
1987-Number 11 single.
Best Bit-At 0.38.Back of the net!

The song began as a joke,it was written as a mickey take on what Adam Yauch called ‘dumb rock songs.’ It is ironic that the song that made the Beastie Boys superstars was thanks to the new ‘fan-base’ they had set out to parody.
‘Your pop caught you smoking and he said no way that hypocrite smokes two packs a day.’
