"Remote Control" and "Three MCs and One DJ" are songs by American hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, from their fifth studio album, Hello Nasty. The two were released as a double A-side single, serving as Hello Nasty's fourth single.
The video for "Three MC's and One DJ" opens with Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA posing in formation in the basement room of an apartment for their DJ, Mix Master Mike. After a short while, he appears at the apartment's entrance door in a Ghostbuster costume. He rings the bell but the three do not move, so he has to wait for someone to exit the apartment to sneak in. Mike arrives at the room, gets behind the deck and the four start to perform. After the performance, the three go back to the same position as they were before the performance started and Mix Master Mike leaves.
The alternate version of the song featured in the video is present on the Beastie Boys compilation album Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science.
