From 1991 to 1992, the Beastie Boys recorded Check Your Head at G-Son Studios in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles. With Mario Caldato, Jr. as co-producer, the album marked the Beasties return to instrumentation. This progression is illustrated with the cover shot of the album (by Glen E. Friedman) that shows the Beastie Boys sitting on the curb with their instrument cases.

The location became the Los Angeles headquarters for Grand Royal Records, the Beastie Boys' subsidiary of Capitol records.

In 2006, the location was put up for sale on craigslist.
