You want to use a song that you know won’t blow
You ask the Beasties, “Please?” but they still says, “No!”
You missed two memos and a cease and desist
And their lawyer sues your ass like you’re some kind of jerk

You gotta fight for your right to damages!

The Beasties caught you cheating and they said, “No way!”
That hypocrite uses “Sabotage” anyway
Man, living by the rules is such a drag
Now Monster threw away your best legal bag (Busted!)

You gotta fight for your right to damages!
You gotta fight!

Don’t step out of this courtroom if ignorance is the defense you’re gonna prepare
Adam Yauch’s will says you don’t have a prayer
The judge busted in and said, “What’s that noise?”
Aw, Monster lost its suit against the Beastie Boys!

You gotta fight for your right to damages!

$1.7 million, to be exact, after Monster Energy Drink included parts of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage,” “So What’cha Want,” “Make Some Noise” and “Looking Down the Barrel of a Gun” on a promotional video on their website. And since Adam Yauch’s will specifically prohibits any company from using the group’s music for advertisements, the Beasties took them to court and wiped the floor with them.
