Adam Yauch's death at the age of 47 puts an end to the career of the Beastie Boys, one of the most influential acts in the history of hip-hop and alt-rock. The Beasties' discography encompassed rap, punk, instrumental grooves and everything in between, so it can be hard to pick favorites. Nevertheless, our question for you this week is: What is the best Beastie Boys song of all time?

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
