Believe it or not, the Beastie Boy's used a number of Beatles samples on their 1989 sophomore release.

"In a late-1990s VIBE interview of all three Beastie Boys, with the group displayed on the cover, Chuck D of Public Enemy was quoted as saying that the "dirty secret" among the black hip-hop community at the time of release was that "Paul's Boutique had the best beats."
During the same VIBE interview, Mike D was asked about any possible hesitation he or the band might have had regarding their overt "sampling" of several minutes of well-known Beatles background tracks. He claimed that the Beatles filed preliminary legal papers, and that his response was "What's cooler than getting sued by the Beatles?"

The lawsuit never came to pass. The songs used were:
"Back in the USSR", "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)", "The End", & "When I'm Sixty-Four" by The Beatles featured on the track "The Sounds of Science."

Never knew this, The Beasties are a good group.
There is something about old school rap, that holds up today.

On YouTube there is a guy under the name of MeanMrMustard I believe who does really great Beatles remixes. He has done Sun King, Misery, Come Together, Tommorow Never Knows and countless others, all wonderful masterpieces. My favorites are Come Together and Tommorow Never Knows, where he incorporates true creativity and geniune care into making the mixes. Really good for something different, check his vids out if you get the chance.
