On August 5th, 1981, the Beastie Boys played their first show in guitarist John Berry's loft. It was Adam Yauch's 17th birthday.

It was at this party that Dave Parsons of the Rat Cage record store said that he wanted to start recording bands, and asked the Beastie Boys if they were interested. They said yes, and the Polly Wog Stew EP was the result.

The name BEASTIE is actually an acronym: Boys Entering Anarchistic States Toward Internal Excellence.
