Commentary:

Beastie Boys

"Some people take this song as offensive. I'm not saying they're wrong. As I've learned often humor at someone else's expense makes you the shallow one. But hey, it seemed kind of funny at the time. Jarvis Cocker sang 'Help the Aged.' I guess we just took it one step further." - Adam Horovitz, 1999

Press

"...[a] disturbingly funny pensioner-shagging R&B serenade" - New Musical Express, 1999

"...a mildly funny sendup of LL Cool J-like hip-hop Lotharios that doesn't stand up to repeated listenings" - Rolling Stone, 1999
