Beastie boys polly wog stew ep 1982

Polly Wog Stew is a 1982 EP by the Beastie Boys, released on the Rat Cage label. Out of print in its original form, all eight songs saw reissue on the 1989 punk rock compilation Killed by Death #1 but were removed from the record's subsequent releases when the Beasties repackaged the entire EP, along with the Cooky Puss 12", as the compilation album Some Old Bullshit.

"Egg Raid On Mojo"

This is one of the few hardcore punk songs that the band continued to play in later years. Liner notes from the anthology The Sounds of Science state that the song is based on an event where members of the band were denied entry to a club by a bouncer, later returning, dressed in black, to pelt the offender with eggs. Some of the lyrics, such as "We, all, dressed in black" were reused in the Paul's Boutique song "Egg Man".

The Some Old Bullshit compilation includes an alternate version taped from Tim Sommer's Noise The Show radio program. Two tracks from Polly Wog Stew also appeared on the 1982 ROIR cassette compilation New York Thrash.
