St. Mark's Sounds is a record store mainstay in the East Village of Manhattan.

The Beastie Boys used to hang out here and listen to records in their hardcore days. They sold their first EP here, Polly Wog Stew, and MCA was reported confused that the 7" would continually sell out each week. Mojo (of "Egg Raid on Mojo") also liked to shop here.

When Licensed to Ill dropped, record store employee Binky Phillips recalled that they listened to it nonstop.

Ad-Rock wrote lyrics to "Paul Revere" on the steps outside of St. Mark's Sound.
