Reports on their break up has become something common for band Beastie Boys that they're no longer surprised with such rumor. Denying their split, the band through one of its members Mike D. told MTV "We don't put out records too often, and we've been doing it for a while, so that puts us in a high-risk category for rumors."
The release of their "Solid Gold Hits" on November 8 is more than enough to tell people that Beastie Boys still exists. The set consists of 15 tracks, including "So What'cha Want," "Brass Monkey," "Hey Ladies" and "Sabotage." What's more, it will also come in a special CD/DVD package featuring a selection of the band's music videos.
