Make Some Noise

The Beastie Boys are officially back in business, so it's only right that the noisy trio serves the official visual for their new single "Make Some Noise." After a much-too-long hiatus, the band delivers an epic music video with throwback elements coupled with contemporary flair. Directed by BB Adam (MCA) Yauch, the stylish and playful video features cameos by Hollywood heavyweights like Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, John C. Reilly, Will Ferrell, Jack Black, Ted Danson, Kirsten Dunst, Orlando Bloom and many more. Thus, they certainly bring back that "Fight for Your Right" revisited type of energy and challenge our patience for the release of Hot Sauce Committee Part Two", due May 3, even more.

Some more Odd Future, featured on MTV news:

Highlighting the vibrant underground scene in California, MTV News's Sway took it upon himself to have an in-depth look at Los Angeles hip-hop – especially the recent phenomenon sparked by OFWGKTA. The clip offers interviews with ?uestlove among others in order to explain the secret to Odd Future's DIY success. The future program will cover the diverse new crowd of rising hip-hop acts from LA and surrounding areas including names like Kendrick Lamar, Nipsey Hussle, Dom Kennedy and more.

17 Years Ago Today

As one of the greatest musicians of his time, Kurt Cobain died today seventeen years ago. Although Cobain's body was discovered at his Lake Washington home on April 8, 1994, the coroner's report estimated the artist to have died three days earlier. As the frontman of grunge band Nirvana he succeeded to hit the nerve of the so-called "Generation X" with their sophomore opus Nevermind and eventually became their spokesman. During the last years of his life, Cobain struggled with heroin addiction, illness and depression, professional and lifelong personal pressures surrounding himself and his wife, musician Courtney Love. In order to commemorate his legacy, we decided to post a rehearsal segment of Nirvana's legendary MTV Unplugged session in 1993. Above you can see the group performing their live rendition of David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World". In his journals, Cobain ranked the album at number 45 in his top 50 favourite albums. Rest in Peace.
