A Very Beasties Lunch: 'Hot Sauce Committee Part 2' Served 5/3

Beastie Boys and Capitol Records have set a date for the trio's first full-length, non-instrumental record in seven years, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. Announced this week, the long awaited return will spill out May 3, and to celebrate, we're serving a Beasties feastie for today's video lunch.
The sequel to the non-released Part 1 (put on hold while dreamboat Adam Yauch sought treatment for cancer) was explained like this via an email:
"In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequence marathon, Beastie Boys have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be composed of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. The record (part 2 that is) will be released as planned in spring 2011 on Capitol. The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (which now are actually back on Part 1) have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material. Wait, what?"
