Riff: Bad Brains – “Into the Future”

Nov 20, 2012

I can get your heart and mind/intergalactic

from Into the Future lyrics by Bad Brains

Bad Brains, back with their first album post-Adam Yauch-produced Build a Nation, pay homage to the late Beastie Boy here a few times, including the featured lyric. While BB may be progenitors of hardcore, the game has changed; they sound tamer than their new peers but the unique harmonies do shine.
