Adam Yauch wrecks "Benny (sic) and the Jets"

There's a reason why he rapped on all those Beastie Boys records. Here he has a go "singing" Elton John's old hit, and is off key all the way. Listen and shudder.

So it does not matter to you, I don't really care. The inclusion of this track on the fatboy anthology raises questions: why did they deem it necessary and worthy? Why did Yauch even attempt it in the first place? If it's all tongue in cheek, it's a very "earnest" performance.

That's Biz Markie, not Adam Yauch.
Nobody beats the Biz.
Therefore, by transitive property of old school hip hop, this is hilarious.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Adam Yauch or Biz Markie, I still think it spoils the collection, "The Sounds of Science". But I'll keep it anyway.
