I love that they went with PJ's. It was a great idea that I am sure they laughed about before they went on.



Keep it on

And afterward too, I bet.

I always dug this performance. It was a weird choice, but they sound amazing (and sloppy but in a good way) w/ Paul Scaffer's band double backing them.

Always thought it made sense for them to go with something instrument-based. Probably the most striking concept about the new 90s Beasties.

There was a time when Live at PJ's was my favourite song by them.

So I remember thinking it was so cool when I discovered that they did it on Letterman.

I always loved it when they did non-singles on big tv appearances and wish they did that more at the end of their career instead of playing Sabotage /
Whatcha Want for everything.

Root Down on Conan, Ricky's Theme Heart Attack Man on Snl, Time to Get ill on Joan rivers.

Also, would have been really cool to see them do something off the Mix Up on letterman with that era's suits and style.

I agree. I used to get bummed when they would be on a show in the later years and they would do So Whatcha Want. I mean, I was always glad to see them perform, but wish they did a different song.



Keep it on

To be fair, they played Shazam (Conan?) on the TT5B trail.

In later years, they were mainly promoting AIFST, SGH or reissues. So it made sense to do a classic of sorts.

That is true. And I loved that performance!



Keep it on

I don't know why this was, but that was the deal. So if, just for instance, Red Hot Chili Peppers were on, Anthony Kiedis and Flea would play with Paul and the band while Chad Smith and John Frusciante would either have to grab a tambourine and hang out while singing backup or take the night off. All three Beastie Boys getting to play their instruments, with Money Mark riding along, was a very rare occurrence and says something about both the politics behind this arrangement and their status at the time. Many a band as big or bigger didn't get the same treatment.

whoa, didn't know!

I always got the impression that Letterman always liked them compared to other late night hosts (with the exception of Fallon and Chris rock obviously).
