This is pure FACT.
So much of a fact that, despite not being properly a "rock" band, here's the last real rock band of the 20th century.

the Beastie Boys were indeed a great group. And I would definitely consider them to be a rock band.
I like the way they blended traditional rock with 80's hip-hop to come up with something wasn't really "either". But isn't that kind of what "rock" is supposed to be about?
Not sure if "irreverence" has anything to do with it, though -- isn't everyone irreverent now? - the last time society "revered" anything was probably in 1969. If someone REALLY wants to be rebellious, they should put out something that sounds like Abba.
