Beastie Boys
Ad-Rock reveals new album's backstory
Eric Helton, Matthew Murphy

Rolling Stone recently caught up with Beastie Boys rapper Adam Horowitz before he DJ'd an event at the Museum of Modern Art celebrating Looking at Music 3.0, an exhibition that includes videos and music by the band. "When we started, we were teenagers and basically we were just thinking about what will happen by the end of the night," Horowitz told Rolling Stone. "We never planned on any of this stuff, let alone being in MoMA. I used to come here with my mom as a kid, and to think that I'd be in a museum or buy our records is totally weird and still is 30 years later."

Horowitz also revealed the reason why the second part of the Beastie Boys' Hot Sauce Committee series came out before the first, and explained how the band managed to pull together a small army of celebrities for their hilarious short film Fight For Your Right (Revisited).
