iPod Nano Ad Uses Jimmy James!

Sorry News Radio fans, not that Jimmy James. I am talking about the first track on the Beastie Boys' record Check Your Head.

Is this news worthy? No. Interesting? Maybe a little. Does it give me a chance to use key iPod and Nano type words in a post just one day after an Apple announcement that will have the whole world searching these terms? You're damn Skippy!

So here is the new iPod Nano (from Apple) ad: Nano

And here is the song : Jimmy James ( Go to Disk 1, Track 20)

Ok so its just the baseline.

Am I saying Apple stole it from The Boys? Hell no. I am sure it was handed to The Beasties by The Dust Brothers and I am sure The Dust Brothers can tell you where they vicked it from. Or maybe one of my readers can... (I'm looking at you WalkingSpanish.)

Jimmy: I wanted a house just like Xanadu, but without a dorky name.
Lisa: So what did you call it?
Jimmy: Fort Awesome.
