Sabotage - Beastie Boys

Sabotage

Ill Communication
Hip-Hop rap 90s rock hip hop


"Sabotage" is a 1994 single by the alternative hip-hop act Beastie Boys. It is a throwback to the band's days as a hardcore punk band in the late 70's and on the song (as with most of its parent album "Ill Communication") the Beastie Boys play their own instruments (Adrock on guitar and lead vocals, MCA on bass and Mike D on drums). It is one the group's most well known songs thanks to its imaginative Spike Jonze-directed video which is an homage/parody to opening credits sequences to 1970s cop shows. It hit #18 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and #19 on the UK Singles Chart.


Beastie Boys were an American hip-hop trio from New York City, United States: Brooklyn and Manhattan. Originally formed as a four-piece hardcore punk band, The Young Aborigines, in 1978 by Michael Diamond (vocals), John Berry (guitar; died May 2016), Adam Yauch (bass) and Kate Schellenbach (drums), for the majority of its career the group consisted of Mike D (real name Michael Diamond), Ad-Rock (Adam Horovitz) and, until his death in May 2012, MCA (Adam Yauch).

Sabotage - Beastie Boys

I can't stand it, I know you planned it,
I'm gonna set it straight, this watergate.
I can't stand rockin' when I'm in here,
Cause your crystal ball ain't so crystal clear.
So, while you sit back and wonder why,
I got this fuckin' thorn in my side.
Oh my God, it's a mirage!
I'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage!

So listen up 'cause you can't say nothin'
You'll shut me down with a push of your button.
But I'm out, and I'm gone,
I'll tell you now I keep it on and on.

'Cause what you see you might not get,
And we can't bet, so don't you get souped yet.
You're schmeing on a thing that's a mirage,
I'm trying to tell you now it's sabotage!

Why! Our backs are now against the wall.
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage,
Listen all of y'all, it's a sabotage!

I can't stand it, I know you planned it,
I'm gonna set it straight this watergate.
But I can't stand rockin' when I'm in this place,
Because I feel disgrace because you're all in my face!
But make no mistakes and switch up my channel,
I'm buddy rich when I fly off the handle.
What could it be? It's a mirage,
You're scheming on a thing that's sabotage
