The Beastie Boys teased the first track from their comeback LP Hot Sauce Committee Part Two last week and now the full track has hit the web, which you can hear below (via Rap Radar).

"Make Some Noise" is a welcome return to the Beasties energetic, loud-mouthed hey-day of classic albums like Check Your Head, even though the dudes are now in their mid-40s. Over swaggering instrumentation (heavily wah-wah'd keyboards, booming drums, and cowbell), Mike D., Ad-Rock, and MCA spit rhymes about age-appropriate activities like sipping Prosecco and going into the restaurant business with Ted Danson.

But there's no denying that "Make Some Noise" is a bonafide party-starter, and when Mike D boasts about smoking the hip-hop competition with a flame thrower — "My rhymes, they age like wine as I get older / I'm getting bolder, competition is waning!" — it's hard to argue with him.
