It’s hard to believe that it has been thirty years since the famed Licensed To Ill record was born. Released on November 15, 1986, Ill put the Beastie Boys on the map, essentially introducing rap music to a much wider audience than ever before. Defined by hits like “Fight For Your Right” and “No Sleep Til’ Brooklyn,” the influence and sheer musicality of the Beastie Boys’ debut album puts it in a league with few others.In honor of the album’s thirty year anniversary, the band has announced a special deluxe vinyl re-release. Cut from the original production masters, the new release is due out on October 14th, 2016 on 180-gram vinyl.
