The Beastie Boys: Lay it Down, Clowns!

Chuck Eddy, Creem, May 1987

"They took the doors off their hinges and moved them around. They flooded two floors with the fire hoses. They plugged up the toilets and destroyed the furniture. They terrorized the other guests. They were just having fun."
– Stephen Davis, Hammer of the Gods, 1985
