Beastie Boys

As we mentioned before, Letterman had a more than 30-year run and it remained a staple in New York City for the entire time. The stage became a frequent pit stop for artists, but was particularly special for New York artists like the Beastie Boys.  After a five year hiatus, the Beastie Boys reemerged with "To the 5 Boroughs," in 2004, which featured the lead single "Ch-Check it Out." As opposed to hitting the in studio stage, the trio emerged from a subway station and rapped their way to the Ed Sullivan Theater, putting on one of the most killer comeback shows to date.
