The group’s influence on Eminem should be obvious to any listener, and the rapper spoke to Rolling Stone about it in 2013. Obviously, yes, there was something about ‘Licensed to Ill’ - you had the Zeppelin samples and their vibe.

Perhaps Licensed to Ill was inevitable - a white group blending rock and rap, giving them the first number one album in hip-hop history. But that reading of the album's history gives short shrift to the Beastie Boys ; producer Rick Rubin, and his label, Def Jam, and this remarkable record, since mixing metal and hip-hop isn't necessarily an easy thing to do. Just sampling and scratching Sabbath and Zeppelin to hip-hop beats does not make for an automatically good record, though there is a visceral thrill to hearing those muscular riffs put into overdrive with scratching.

Then came Licensed To Ill. The album’s title was a pun based on a 1965 imitation James Bond film, Licensed To Kill. Strangely, the album pre-dated a real James Bond movie entitled Licence To Kill by three years. Was it art imitating art imitating art? The album’s gatefold artwork was famously done by collage artist World B Omes and depicted an airplane crashing into the side of a cliff. Run-DMC were the template for Beastie Boys in so many ways: the loud drums and the shouted vocal delivery where bandmates would complete each other’s lines. And then, of course there’s the fact that Run-DMC actually wrote pieces of Licensed To Ill, including ‘Slow And Low’, which they originally recorded (with Rubin producing) as a demo that never made it onto their own albums. The first four lines of ‘Paul Revere’ were concocted by Run (Joe Simmons) for Beasties to use.

The Beastie Boys‘ first album should bear a prominent label, not to protect impressionable teens so much as their elders. warning: certain scenes and references contained herein may seem offensive, even dangerous, until you realize that it’s all a colossal joke. We drink and rob and rhyme and pillage, goes Rhymin & Stealin, the lead cut, and that could also serve as the Beastie Credo. Licensed to Ill cuts an even wider swath musically than Raising Hell, and it’s the brash assurance of Rubin’s stealin that ultimately makes these white boys more than a sophomoric joke. She’s Crafty, No Sleep Till Brooklyn and The New Style are all squealing examples of Rubin’s signature metal-beat-box fusion, but even the kookiest mutations sound great here.
