(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)

with 14 comments

This is an idea that has been floating around in my head for a few months, and for obvious reasons, I got around to realising it this weekend.

Each dot represents one word of the song. The colours represent who is saying that word.

Sometimes, I’m asked if there are prints of my work available; I don’t normally do that sort of thing, but on the off-chance that you would like a print of this graphic, I’m providing a hi-res TIFF (254 x 321 mm / 10 x 12.6 inches; zipped file; 18.1MB) that you can download and have printed.

You don’t have to pay for it—-I certainly don’t want to profit from it-—but if you do want to download and print it, it would be nice if you would consider donating something to a cancer charity.

Here are some links to cancer charities in different countries.
If your home country is not listed, and you want to donate, just do some Googlin’,
and do it that way (and if you do do that, please email me (craig AT flipflopflyin DOT com)
and let me know which charity you used, and I can add it to the list.)

Canada: cancer.ca
Germany: kinderkrebsstiftung.de
Mexico: amlcc.org
UK: cancerresearchuk.org
USA: cancer.org

Here’s the Mediafire link to the hi-res file: fightforyourright.zip

  1. This is absolutely wonderful! I’ve worked in oncology for years, and have met some of the most beautiful and most brave people in their fight to beat cancer. This is a really nice representation of MCA’s voice. Thank you!

  7. Great idea.

    Since 20 years I’m a big Beastie Boys fan and I was realy shocked about MCA’s death.

    I donwnloaded the poster and just donated €10 to the „Deutsche Kinderkrebs Stiftung“ (www.kinderkrebsstiftung.de). It is the german cancer charity for children.

  8. This is like the lyric insert inside Hot Sauce Committee Part 2! The whole album is color-coded by singer. Of course, it’s words in the insert, not dots. :) This is very cool, and much nicer to look at. Thanks for providing the high-res link.

  9. I did not know that. That’s what happens when you don’t buy hard copies of music any more.

  13. Would you consider doing this for other Beastie Boys songs? Perhaps on (small) commission?

  14. I would yes.
    I did one for The Sounds of Science, too.
