For some reason I ended up on Wikipedia at 3AM this morning reading about the history of the blast beat. Thank the Beastie Boys (specifically Kate from Luscious Jackson) for being one of the first outside of the jazz world to get the iconic repeated sixteenth notes on wax. This old bullshit is so good. R.I.P. MCA.
