In case there was any doubt - the Beastie Boys are still ILL. 

 

25 years after the release of Ill Commmunication, Amazon has released a 15-minute mini-documentary - featuring old footage and  more recent interviews with surviving Beastie Boys Michael Diamond  & Adam Horovitz - plus  collaborators Mario Caldato Jr. and Mark Nishita, illustrating the winding road that led to the classic album 

 

 

 

The doc's press release explains:  

 

“Debuting at #1 upon its May 1994 release, Beastie Boys’ fourth album was an unstoppable force, pervading every aspect of pop culture.  25 years later Ill Communication’s impact has resounded with generation after generation.”
