TIME FOR LIVIN' - A Hardcore & Thrash Tribute To Beastie Boys

March 2021 marks this page's 11th anniversary but also one dreadful year of quarantine due Covid-19. My first thought was to make a virus-themed compilation but screw that, with Brazil and many other countries facing its darkest moment right now, our minds need to find relief anytime we can.

Instead here's a Hardcore & Thrash Tribute to one of the most legenday groups of our generation, the BEASTIE BOYS. From its humble beginning as a teenage punk band paying homage to BAD BRAINS (hence the BB initials) to later enter the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. The more-than-skilled trio -- Mike D, Ad-Rock, MCA (RIP) -- gave us dope hip hop, soothing instrumentals and full-fledged hardcore that many other groups covered.

This goes out to all my good friends, wherever they are, who (like me) grew up listening to Rap Music, Punk and Metal with BEASTIE BOYS being right in the center of it all! Also, as all previous compilations posted here, this is a non-profit and digital only "release". Stay safe and love one another.

Since there's plenty of bands covering them, especially on the Fight For Your Right song, here's the second part of the tribute with some extras (repeated songs), plus the FRONTLINE original track which served as "inspiration" for Time For Livin' and, of course, the Thrash metal covers which for some weird (and fun) reason are very close to the original versions.
