There’s really nothing structured about this video. Which is what makes it so cool. It’s just raw footage of the Beastie Boys circa Check Your Head at San Francisco’s famed Groove Merchant record shop, digging for records as funky breaks play over the store’s system.

And when something from Bulldog Breaks drops Mario C looks like the happiest guy on the planet, while Hurricane exclaims, “Yo, Mike, these are the type of beats I need, right here.” Issues of Straight No Chaser by the cash register. Definitely the ’90s…
