B-Boys' new album: all rhymin', no stealin'


— 5:48 PM on June 23, 2004

Listen all y'all, the latest Beastie Boys CD is a sabotage. For European buyers of To the Five Boroughs, the first song on their new album will be protected by Macrovision software. To prevent the disc from becoming a pirate treasure, the 'Boys profess that the booty on the disc is guarded as a standard practice of their label, Capitol Records. The group wants to make it clear that it was not their choice to introduce copy controls, and neither UK nor US releases contain them, so what'cha want may be a disc issued to those countries.

Tip: You can use the A/Z keys to walk threads.
