    I'm listening back through Paul's Boutique and there is not only a fair bit of good guitar playing but the overall musicianship has been top notch for each of their albums. Sometimes I'm surprised to never hear about them around here as they are well known as gear hounds both new and vintage.

    And yes, I have been blasting the Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 :)

    That's a group i could never get into, even though i know that many people love them, and what they do. Something about the vocal delivery just annoys me.

    Big fan here! "Paul's Boutique" and "Check Your Head" are two of the greatest hip hop albums ever, IMO!

    Beastie boys cant be touched, great music.

    One of those things I didnt know, but learned that Kerry King played the solo on No Sleep Till Brooklyn, they were on the same label back then.

    I'm a fan, although I haven't been keeping up with them lately. I think the last disc I bought was From The 3 Boroughs. My band plays Fight For Your Right, though, and that goes over really well.

    Saw them at Bonnaroo a few years back and they were simply amazing for what they do! Have been a fan since I was a kid!

    I liked "Cookiepuss."

    And of course, "Fight for Your Right to Party" is one of the all-time great dumb-rock anthems.

    Fun group - don't take themselves too seriously.
