Recordamos Beastie Boys en Intergalactic

“Intergalactic” lanzada por el grupo de hip-hop Beastie Boys, fue el primer sencillo de su quinto álbum de estudio Hello Nasty el 12 de mayo de 1998. El single llegó al nº 28 en los EE.UU.

También alcanzó el número 5 en la lista de singles del Reino Unido, donde sigue siendo el mayor éxito de la banda en el país. La canción recibió un Premio Grammy por Mejor Interpretación de Rap en 1999.

Curiosidades…

  • El vídeo fue grabado en Japón.
  • Los japoneses tan reservados… ni siquiera conocían a los Beastie Boys por entonces.
  • Se les prohibió rodar en el metro, por lo que el equipo de producción tuvo que estar continuamente cambiando de ubicación.
  • A los actores caracterizados de robots, sólo se les decía… ¡Luchad!, pero no podían ver nada…

Letra de la canción:

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic
Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic
Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension
Well, now, don’t you tell me to smile

You stick around I’ll make it worth your while

Like numbers beyond what you can dial

Maybe it’s because were so versatile
Style, profile I said

It always brings me back when I hear Wu child

From the Hudson river out to the Nile

I run the Marathon to the very last mile

Well, if you battle me I feel revile

People always sayin’ my style is wild

You’ve got gaul, you’ve got guile

If you step to me I’m going to rap full file
If you wanna battle you’re in denial

Comin’ from Uranus to check my style

Go ahead with my rhymes I’ll trial

Cast you off into exile
Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic
Jazz and Awol, that’s our team

Step inside the party, disrupt the whole scene

When it comes to beats, well, I’m a fiend

I’d like my sugar with coffee and cream
Well, I gotta keep it going keep it going full steam

To sweet to be sour to nice to be mean

With the tough guy style I’m not too keen

Trying to change the world, I’m going to plot and scheme
Mario C likes to keep it clean

Goin’ to shine like a sunbeam

Keep on rappin, ‘coz that’s my dream

Thank Mo D for sticking to the beats
Now when it comes to envy y’all is green

Jealous of the rhyme and the ryhme routine

Another dimension, new galaxy

Intergalactic planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic
Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic
Were from the family tree of old school hip-hop

Kick off your shoes and relax your socks

Your rhymes are spread just like a pox

‘Coz the music is loud like an electric shock
I am known to do the wop

Also known for the Flintstone Flop

Tammy D gets biz on the crops

Beastie Boys known to let the beat, mmm, drop
Now when I wrote graffiti my name was Slop

If I rap soup my beats is stock

Step from the table when I start to chop

I’m the lumberjack D.J Ad Rock
If you try to knock me you’ll get mopped

I’ll stir fry you in my wok

Your knees start shakin’ and your fingers pop

Like a pinch on the neck from Mr. Spock
Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Intergalactic, planetary, planetary Intergalactic

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension

Another dimension, another dimension
Do it
