Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock took the piss with his Rolling Stones Greatest album list submission


Rolling Stone recently published its list of 500 greatest albums , updating it for 2020.

To do so it polled 300 artists, critics and industry to make the list.

The Beastie Boys Ad-Rock put some real artists like Phil Collins and Macka B in there but true to form, quickly devolved into a pisstake list.

His list included completely made up artists like Sergeant Crikey, and album titles like Slip Into Something More Fantastical and Flutes A Plenty.

Ultimate Spinach are, surprisingly, a real band.

There’s even a pisstake Irish album titled as Aileen Mccullough’s An Oiread Sin Báistí.
