ROCK Sex: "Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego!"


ROCK Sex says, "Yeah, that's right, it's time to set the record straight!"

Time for some Funk tag today...

First the scandelous FUNKADELIC recorded this twisted ditty...

FUNKADELIC -"Loose Booty" (1972)

Then SLY STONE liked the title so much he made a new song...

SLY & THE FAMILY STONE -"Loose Booty" (1974)

Then THE BEASTIE BOYS sampled Sly's chant of the biblical nobles, "Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego" in their song...

BEASTIES -"Shadrach" (1989)

After refining their Funk chops by playing to Sly records, The Beasties twistedly did a cover of another Sly song in a Punk update...

SLY & THE FAMILY STONE -"Time For Livin' " (1974)

BEASTIES -"Time For Livin' " (1992)

(note the t-shirt at 0:10)

"Find yourself some room to let it all hang out/
Get into some dancing, do what it's all about!"
