"Jimmy James" as written by Michael Louis Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Adam Nathaniel Yauch, Mario Caldato Jr. and Edward Chaplin....
This next one's the first song on our new album

People how you doin', there's a new day dawnin'
For the earth mother, it's a brand new mornin'
For such a long while, there's been such a longin'
But now the sun is shinin', let's roll back the awnin'

This is a type of kinda like a formal dedication
Givin' out a shout
for much inspiration
All I ever really want to do is get nice
Get loose and goof a little slice of life
Sendin' out love to all corners of the land
I jump up on the stage and take the mic in my hand
I'm not playin' the roll, just being who I am
And if you try to dis me, I couldn't give a damn

Bass from the back of my car feels soothin'
Eight bazookas is what I'm usin'
I'm Mike D, and it's been proven
I love it when I see the party people just movin'
Strapped on my ear goggles and what did I see?
But the music brought the people into harmony

    General CommentExtremely strong opening to an incredible album. Check Your Head is one of the best albums I've ever heard! From beginning to end it kicks ass in so many ways. Seriously, there is nothing that sucks here. I bought it when it came out & it still hasn't gotten old. The 2009 remaster is worth the money. A whole extra disc with the b-sides & remixes.
