THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
610-Beastie Boys-(You Gotta)Fight For Your Right(To Party.)
1987-Number 11 single.
Best Bit-At 0.38.Back of the net!
‘Fight For Your Right’ was written by founding member of the Beastie Boys,Adam Yauch,he died of cancer in 2012.
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.’

Cornell stated that the title for the song came from something he heard on the news,he thought he heard the anchor say ‘black hole sun,’but he was really saying something else.Cornell started thinking about the phrase and decided to write a song around it,as he felt it was a thought provoking title.
‘Black Hole Sun won’t you come and wash away the rain.’
