Description

Check Your Head is the third studio album by the American hip-hop group Beastie Boys, released on April 21, 1992, by Capitol Records. Three years elapsed between the releases of the band's second studio album Paul's Boutique and Check Your Head, which was recorded at the G-Son Studios in Atwater Village in 1991 under the guidance of producer Mario Caldato Jr., the group's third producer in three albums. Less sample-heavy than their previous records, the album features instrumental contributions from all three members: Adam Horovitz on lead guitar, Adam Yauch on bass guitar, and Mike Diamond on drums.

It was re-released in 2009 in a number of formats. The re-release featured 16 b-sides and rarities as well as a commentary track. The album is extensively broken down track-by-track by Diamond, Yauch, Horovitz, Caldato, and frequent Beasties collaborator Money Mark in Brian Coleman's book Check the Technique.
