Wait, who are the Beatie Boys? Maybe you got mixed up with the Beatles? Not that that doesn't have any precedent, but whatever... ;D

SO, Beastie Boys, nice change of pace from the rock/metal rut we got stuck in for a few rounds. Could be tricky, though who knows?

In the projects I have going on I have a good selection of Beastie Boys songs to work with...

1. "Intergalactic"
2. "Sabotage"
3. "So What'cha Want"
4. "Fight For Your Right To Party"
5. "Brass Monkey"

So at least there's some variety, lol... This is going to be a fun round!

Hey Dave and everybody,

Luke Ski here. I was led to this page via Spaff's twitter. I'm not sure what the details are to this contest, but I do have some Beastie Boys parodies, specifically of "Intergalactic" and "No Sleep Till Brooklyn". Would I be allowed to submit them?

Nice selection of Beastie Boys songs, "Egg Man" is one of my favorites. :)

Yeah sure, just submit the lyrics to the AmIRight page at The lyric submission page and then it can compete here.  Of course, a link to your recording is optional, but with your quality, I think a link to the recording will always be a plus.

The Artistry competition is always open to anyone, you don't have to be a prior contestant to enter.  The only rules for qualified entries are that the lyrics have to be available through amiright.com, The parody must be of a song by the artist (or any solo act by artists in the band) for the current round, and that everyone have fun.  Voting and such has it's own set of rules, but basically it's just that during the two week follow up period, everyone involved reads, comments and votes for their favorites minus their own, and I announce the winners based on those votes at the deadline.  Be happy to provide more info,  and always--always--welcome new competitors!

Yep that's how to enter, at the deadline (7/1/2009) I will post the voting thread, including your entry, and at that point it's just like the SOTM, where we each read each other's parodies, comment and vote.  Welcome to Artistry!

NEVER!!!  We all are highly talented parodists here. We should submit our parodies, review and vote, and...

Even though I have a few John Denver songs behind me in my tool box, none of them are really all that good because they were written back when I was just a newborn to the site, and my grammar back then was terrible, so I most likely am going to write a new song for that round.
