"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 the fourth single from Hello Nasty
"Three MCs and One DJ" features scratching by Mix Master Mike, and marks his debut song with the group. The single peaked at #21 on the UK Singles Chart.
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 entrance door of the apartment in a Ghostbuster costume. He rings the bell but the three do not move, so he has to wait for someone else exiting 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 video was shot in the basement of 262 Mott Street located in the Little Italy neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City. This was also where the Beastie Boys had recorded Hello Nasty.
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.
