Beastie Boys Samples

While listening to "Licensed To Ill", I got curious as to all the samples that the Beastie Boys have used on their albums.

 I found this on the Miscreant Productions site, and figured I'd pass it on. It's a catalog of all the different samples and the source material that the Beastie Boys lifted.

Some of the sources are pretty obvious (a ton of Zep, James Brown, and Sly Stone), but did you know that they also sampled Elvis Costello (on "Egg Man"), Black Flag ‐ (on "And What You Give Is What You Get") and Pink Floyd (on "Looking Down The Barrel Of A Gun")?

Cool stuff.
