Unlike, say, Rage Against the Machine or Faith No More, the Beastie Boys are rarely placed in the nu-metal family tree, though their revolutionary fusion of rowdy hip-hop and hard-hitting rock no doubt helped to inspire the big-pants scene of the late Nineties/early Aughts. In 2015, while on their joint Prepare for Hell Tour, Korn and the "crazy-looking motherfuckers" of Slipknot (Jonathan Davis' words, not ours) drew a scrawled line from the Beasties to themselves with a raucous live cover of the latter's classic 1994 cut "Sabotage." Watch pro-shot footage of the performance — at London's Wembley arena — above.
