Rock Picks of the Week: Beastie Boys, 30 Seconds To Mars, Journey, Duff McKagan’s Loaded, The Smithereens

You've seen the teaser videos, now here it is...the full 30 minute mini-movie from The Beastie Boys. The Brooklyn-bred rap group finally revisits their first mega-hit, "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" in this star-filled, action-packed short set in the wild mid-80's period that saw their star skyrocket. A semi-autobiographical bit with plenty of foul language and casual destruction, Danny McBride, Elijah Wood and Seth Rogen star as the Beasties, with Will Ferrell, Jack Black and John C. Reilly mirroring them as their older selves. Stanley Tucci and Susan Sarandon play annoyed adults who just had their house smashed in by a party.

The list of bit players is even more impressive: Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Adam Scott, Rainn Wilson, Ted Danson, Roman Coppola, Steve Buscemi, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzmann, Alicia Silverstone, Laura Dern, Kirsten Dunst, Chloe Sevigny, Maya Rudolph, David Cross, and Martin Starr.

Set to coincide with the release of their long-anticipated new album, "Hot Sauce Committee Part Two," the film also features cameos from the real Beasties Adam Yauch (who directed), Adam Horovitz and Mike D. Of course, they feature as cops.

Within the video is also the first single from "Hot Sauce Committee Part Two," "Make Some Noise". Check it out!

30 Seconds To Mars "This Is War", the title track to their album of the same name. The band has released multiple videos from "This is War", and the visual aspects and message of this match what the band is doing musically.

30 Seconds To Mars are touring the U.S, into June, then they will hit Croatia, Austria, Netherlands, Paris, Switzerland, Italy, Estonia, Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Norway, Sweden, Hungary, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Russia, Lebanon, Germany, and finally the U.K. The tour will wrap up with the Leeds Festival on August 27th.
