The Beastie Boys return to punk, in a triumphant way
5 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the exceptional director of many things, Spike Jonze, came this music video in 1994. Among his other ones (All About the Benjamins, Praise You, and his best to date Weapon of Choice with Christopher Walken), this one is another foray into things we have not seen a while in music videos.

This time, the trio who started out punk and went into the Def Jam cycle of rap, came back in Ill Communication to make this hit Sabatoge, and the video is just as great as the song. It is a funny take-off on old 70's cop shows (having a black cop as bunny is dead pan) with the three in fake wigs and moustaches running around with a frenzied pace from Jonze to match they're song. Brilliant punk song and video, this is one of the best of the 90's. A+
