Beastie Boys :: Samples :: Rhymin' and Stealin'

Rhymin' and Stealin' kicked off the record and the first sound the world ever heard from the Beastie Boys was, oddly, the drums of the mighty Led Zeppelin's John Bonham! True to the title of the song the Beastie Boys borrowed more than a few things from their' heroes. The beat to Rhymin' and Stealin' was actually sampled from Led Zeppelin's When the Levee breaks. The riff, which was not sampled, but rather replayed, was taken from Black Sabbath's Sweet Leaf.

This Gear!
