Listen to part of the Beastie Boys' performance of "Remote Control," from last night's set at the Gorge. 

My colleagues and I were all wrong about what the Beastie Boys would throw down to open their closing set.

The choice in question was actually "Gratitude," from the band's 1992 record Check Your Head. I hadn't even considered that they would have opened the set on their instruments, so, I was ambitions and guessed "No Sleep Till Brooklyn."

I'll come clean right here, I did not stick around for the entire set, but I did see enough to gather that the faithfuls who maintained through the cold for the headlining set were not disappointed by the offering, which included a crushing performance of "Body Movin'."

We've got more post-Sasquatch! Beasties talk, and lotsa pics from Renee McMahon, coming later this afternoon.
