"...another one where just me and Yauch did the whole thing. I did the beat and helped with some of the music, and he played the guitar on it. And then he did the lyrics, and that's just him. And he said, 'I'm just doing the lyrics on this one.' So they [Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz] go, 'Okay.' So they just do the chorus, they go 'stand together, stand together,' that's all that they do. But it's just Yauch on the whole song." - Mario Caldato, excerpted from The Skills to Pay the Bills by Alan Light, 2005
