When the Beastie Boys arrived in Los Angeles after leaving Def Jam Recordings in New York, they initially stayed on the ninth floor of the Modrian Hotel.

It was summertime, and across the street there were lines of people waiting to get into The Comedy Store. Never ones to let an opportunity pass, the BBoys decided to throw eggs at them from the ninth floor. This led to a series of "drive-by eggings, plaguing L.A." and is the subject of the Paul's Boutique song, "Egg Man."
