Anyone who knows me from my high school days knows I was a Beastie Boys fanatic. This was before their first album came out (I know, I'm old). I had bought “Cookie Puss” when it came out and loved both sides. I bought “Rock Hard” (a 12″ single pre-”Licensed To Ill” era) and MCA's solo song called “Drum Machine”. I even bought “She's On It”, although I didn't like it as much as the earlier singles. I went to the Run-DMC …
