The Beastie Boys Drop "Hello Nasty" Reissue

September 15, 2009 5:41 PM ET

The Beastie Boys' new album The Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 was originally scheduled to be released today, September 15th, before Adam "MCA" Yauch's bout with salivary gland cancer delayed the new LP and canceled their summer tour plans. While a new release date hasn't yet been announced, apparently the Beasties didn't want to deprive their fans of music: The NYC trio announced that their year-long reissue project will conclude today, September 15th with the digital re-release of their 1998 album Hello Nasty, featuring the pre-millennial stereo-bumping cuts like "Intergalactic," "Body Movin'" and "Remote Control." As with the other reissues, the physical release of the new Hello Nasty on September 22nd will come in a variety of formats, all of which boasts the remastered album itself plus 21 bonus tracks featuring rarities, skits and more.

$21.98 now will get you the digital download, but for an extra $3, you'll get the double-disc ecopack complete with the download in either high-quality mp3s or FLAC files. There's also a double vinyl/digital download package and, with a limited run of 1,500 copies and shipping October 30th, a Collector's Vinyl with four 180 vinyls boasting all the songs, "8 panel gatefold package, lenticular cover, and hardcover 'coffee table book' case," plus the digital download. With any of the packages, throwing in an additional $10 will get you all the Hello Nasty-era music videos with additional audio commentary from the Beasties. There's also a deal to get a T-shirt. Explore all the Nasty possibilities over at the refurbished Beastie Boys' official site now.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
