Following two other singles from the album, "Make Some Noise" was released on April 11, 2011, prior to the album's release.

Music videos[edit]

A standard length music video for "Make Some Noise" was released on April 20, 2011.[2] The video is a sequel to the music video for the Beastie Boys' 1987 single "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)". Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, and Elijah Wood portray Mike D, MCA, and Ad-Rock respectively as they continue the party throughout town. The music video features many notable film and television actors in cameo roles: Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Rainn Wilson, Jason Schwartzman, Mary Steenburgen, Ted Danson, Amy Poehler, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, Maya Rudolph, Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, Orlando Bloom, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, and Jack Black (the last 3 playing a future older version of the Boys).[3]

A 30-minute-long version written and directed by MCA and entitled Fight for Your Right Revisited was released the following day to commemorate the 25th anniversary of "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)".[4] It is an extended version of the music video with additional segments, followed by a dance battle between the Beastie Boys and their future selves that ends with both past and future versions urinating on each other and everyone getting arrested by the police (played by the actual Beastie Boys). There are cameos from Susan Sarandon, Rashida Jones, Stanley Tucci, Amy Poehler, Mary Steenburgen, Alicia Silverstone, Laura Dern, Milo Ventimiglia and Martin Starr. Additional performers include Adam Scott, Roman Coppola, Shannyn Sossamon, Robert Downey Jr., Jody Hill, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Mills, Arabella Field, Alfredo Ortiz, and Silvia Šuvadová.[5] MCA's daughter Losel also makes a brief appearance in the videos.
