Aa good 50% of Beastie Boys lyrics are lines lifted straight from Run-D.M.C.. Or maybe vice versa, who knows. I will now catalogue them. Note that this is very much a work in progess; i've got a list in a text file somewhere which i'll find and add. Submissions to <email@example.com>.
|Lyric||Run-D.M.C. Track||Beasties Track|
|And if I got a new rhyme I'll just say it||Sucker MCs||Super Disco Breakin'|
|I'm the king of rock, there is none higher||King of Rock||Putting Shame In Your Game (NB: s/rock/boggle/)|
|Not five, not four, not three, just two||Jam Master Jay||3 The Hard Way (NB: swaps the last two numbers)|
|It's like that y'all, but we don't quit||It's Tricky||Can't Won't Don't Stop (NB: the Beasties neither can, nor will, nor do stop, rather than not quitting)|
|It's time to get ill||My Adidas||Time to Get Ill|
|We get down with no delay||King of Rock||Three MCs And One DJ (NB: rather than simply get down, the Beasties be getting down)|
|Fresh ... For you ...||Rock Box (NB: the wrong way round)||That's It That's All|
|God damn that DJ made my day||Peter Piper||Three MCs And One DJ (NB: here, sampled from the Biz - go figure)|
Maybe the solution is to get the complete lyrics of both bands from somewhere and run BLAST over them or something ...
