Educated: no. Stupid: yes.
And when I say “stupid,” I mean stupid fresh.

King Ad Rock, “Hey Ladies,” from Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique, 1989

Lookin down the barrel of a gun, son of gun, son of a bitch, gettin paid, gettin rich!

Beastie Boys, “Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun,” Paul’s Boutique, 1989

You wake up late for school, man you don’t wanna go!
You ask your mom “Please?” but she still says “No!”
You missed two classes, and no homework,
But your teacher preaches class like you’re some kind of jerk!

Beastie Boys, “Fight For Your Right (to Party),” Licensed to Ill, 1986

Now who in the world do you want to fight?
It’s against the system, we should unite.
Homophobics ain’t alright;
If you learn to love, then you might love life.

Ad Rock, “Alive,” Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science, 1999
