The Roots Cover Beastie Boys
Watch The Roots covering Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere" in the replies.

One of the few bands that can do this justice and it doesn't feel completely forced.

That's how I'm feeling. I generally avoid the Beastie Boys covers because it has gotten annoying, but when I saw the Roots I knew it was worth clicking. Definitely one of the best bands out there as far as musicianship is concerned.

Roots cover BB
Agreed. Fitting tribute. Much respect.

Roots Picnic this weekend in Philly! Woot!

I don't think any of the covers I've seen have been annoying.

Dude, they killed it at the Hall of Fame last month...no surprise here

a lot of the covers i've heard have been great and very respectful. i think it's sweet, but this is definitely one of the better ones.

My favorite Beastie Boys song. This was really cool.

The Roots always come through. Part of the reason I started watching Jimmy Fallon.

Black Thought is just too good. Fantastic cover.

6.9/10. Roots are the shit though!

Even if you're not a huge fan of their catalog, you have to respect The Roots as musicians. Loved hearing this.
