beastie boys gi Beastie Boys 'Make Some Noise' with new singleApparently it wasn’t supposed to go down like this. At least according to the official Beastie Boys website. But after clips from their new single leaked online, the band decided to stream the entire song online themselves.

On Tuesday (April 6), Beastie Mike Diamond posted the audio track with the message, “This wasn’t really part of the plan, but since this track is out there we wanted to let you hear it here first, or maybe second. Enjoy.”

Done and done.

“Make Some Noise,” the first single off “Hot Sauce Committee Part Two,” is chock full of funky, phat bass and beats that totally pay homage to 1992’s “Check Your Head.” FYI, that’s a good thing.

Expect a full album in early May. It was originally due in 2009, but was delayed for several reasons — not the least of which was Adam Yauch’s battle with cancer. (He won.)
