In 1992, the hip-hop pioneering Beastie Boys released their third full-length album Check Your Head. Track ten on the album is Something's Got To Give - an anti-war song that features Adam Horovitz on guitar, Adam Yauch on bass and Mike D on drums. Check Your Head was the first time that the trio played live instruments on an album since their early EPs, with the exception of a couple songs on their second album Pauls Boutique. Somethings Got To Give's instrumentation is an example of how Check Your Head was a return to the rap rock group's punk rock roots.
