Music Monday: Sabotage by Beastie Boys


Music Monday is a meme I picked up from Drew, The Tattooed Book Geek. Music Monday is all about choosing a song you like and sharing it with everyone.

This week’s choice is one of my all time fave tracks. I love Beastie Boys. Last year I did the Great Manchester 10k run with this track and 2 others (to come in future MMs) on repeat. Every time this came on, I felt like a total bad ass and it kept me running for 3 minutes longer! Plus, this has one of the greatest intros ever. As usual, turn it to 11, and enjoy.

I can’t stand it I know you planned it
I’m gonna set it straight, this watergate
I can’t stand rocking when I’m in here
Because your crystal ball ain’t so crystal clear
So while you sit back and wonder why
I got this fucking thorn in my side
Oh my God, it’s a mirage
I’m tellin’ y’all it’s sabotage

So listen up ’cause you can’t say nothin’
You’ll shut me down with a push of your button?
But yo I’m out and I’m gone
I’ll tell you now I keep it on and on

‘Cause what you see you might not get
And we can bet so don’t you get souped yet
You’re scheming on a thing that’s a mirage
I’m trying to tell you now it’s sabotage

Why; our backs are now against the wall
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage
Listen all of y’all it’s a sabotage

I can’t stand it, I know you planned it
But I’m gonna set it straight this watergate
But I can’t stand rockin’ when I’m in this place
Because I feel disgrace because you’re all in my face
But make no mistakes and switch up my channel
I’m Buddy Rich when I fly off the handle
What could it be, it’s a mirage
You’re scheming on a thing – that’s sabotage

Until next time, Peace, Love, and Rock ‘n’ Roll!


  1. Well, this was new for me.. I don’t think I ever listened to Beastie Boys… nope, can’t recall that I have.
    Also- ace for running the 10k. I’ve been wanting to do like a half marathon or something but I am too lazy to get off my ass… this office work has lost me so much muscle mass, it’s not even funny… I have to start working out…

    1. How have you never listened to Beastie Boys?! They are completely tongue in cheek nerds that produce great music.
      I do the 10km run each year – it’s the one bit of real exercise I do. I train from Jan – May and then nothing for the rest of the year! XD
