Band Name Origins:

  • Many people confuse this for an acronym or a reference to beastiality. It said in the book that came with The Sounds of Science that they wanted a stupid name that sounded like the Angry Samoans. They also didn't expect the band to last more than a couple of gigs so named it the Beastie Boys. Submitted by: home depot
  • Acronym : Boys Entering Anarchistic States Toward Internal Excellence Submitted by: Bobo

Stupid Band Names:

  • It wouldn't be, except the "B" in Beastie (which is actually an acronym) is supposed to STAND for "Boys." They're using it twice, thus the name is redundant. Submitted by: Jonathan S.

Misheard Lyrics Stories:

"Fight for Your Right to Party"
Misheard Lyrics:
Dad Uncle Clint smokes two packs a day.
Original Lyrics:
That hypocrite smokes two packs a day.

Story about this misheard lyric by: BRYAN PARK

When my friend finally stopped laughing at hearing me belt out the lyrics I thought were right, I was mad. We argued for over 15 minutes & re-listened to it over & over. We eventually just made a bet over it & after fighting & getting other people involved I finally conceded that "that hypocrite" did make more sense. I still think it sounds more like "Dad Uncle Clint."

Funniest Song Lyrics:

The Funny Lyrics:
If you try to knock me, you'll get rocked.
I'll stir fry you in my wok,
if you start say anything you'll get popped
like a pencil neck called Mr. Spock.
Why They're Funny:
It just made me laugh the first time I hear it, with all these near-rhymes. (Well, wok and Spock are the only exact rhymes, lol.)
Submitted by: Celeste
"Brass Monkey"
The Funny Lyrics:
Come on everybody, let's get ffffff!
Why They're Funny:
Methinks this is supposed to be a "curse cut short"; it sounds like he's about to say a dirty word, but stretches out the "f" sound instead. This is exactly what it says on the lyrics sites; the letter 'f' is used anywhere from 4 to 6 times in succession.
