On the way home from Ryan’s 18th birthday-we-missed-lunch-lets-have-coffee-and-give-you-cards-and-hugs meeting, I was listening to my new Nano (Ipod pay it forward post coming on Tuesday) and Beastie Boys came on.
Dan wasn’t singing along with me, Kara, Alyx and Shea.
“Dad didn’t get on the Beastie Boys bandwagon in the 80’s.” I announce.
“I hate the Beastie Boys.” he admits.
Years of marriage and I did not know this about the man. Of course, it wasn’t until I got one of his social security letters a few years ago that I found out his name wasn’t Daniel….but Danny. But MUSICALLY, I know the man. I didn’t know he was a hater of Beastie Boys. How could this be?
“They suck. They’re rap.” He proclaims.
Now this is where I have to ask the question: Is Beastie Boys ‘Rap’. I see it has all the characteristics of rap music…yet it can not be categorized as such.
I switched it over to classic rock and debated what song by the Beastie Boys I would be playing at his funeral.
