The bell rings for our first ever Vinyl Cage Match pitting two Beastie Boys classics against each other. In the red corner it’s 1992’s Check Your Head and fighting out of the blur corner, 1994’s Ill Communication. We can’t argue that each of these records is great but we can debate which is better. Take a listen and see which one comes out on top.
