Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock has trolled Rolling Stone with his contribution to their 500 Greatest Albums poll.
Last week, Rolling Stone published their updated 500 Greatest Albums of All Time poll, collating over 300 responses from artists, critics and other figures from throughout the music industry.
One of the artists to submit a ballot was Beastie Boys' Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horovitz, who submitted a list of 50, erm, questionable choices to the poll.
Speaking about Horovitz's ballot entry, Rolling Stone said that the list "set a high bar for taste, erudition and hilarious bullshit," and questioned if they had been placed there "not because of musical quality, but as part of some sort of clever satirical gesture."
You can check out Horovitz's creative entry below.
