Fans of Fox’s primetime series The O.C. will be among the first to hear the Beastie Boys’ new single, “Ch-Check It Out.” The song will be featured prominently on the April 28 episode of the show, in which the boys of the O.C. go to Las Vegas for an impromptu bachelor party and the ladies cook up their own trouble with a bachelorette party back home. “Ch-Check It Out” is the first single off the Beastie Boys’ To The 5 Boroughs, their first album in six years. “Ch-Check It Out” will debut on radio on the 28 as well, according to Fox.
Though none of the songs previously featured on The O.C. were as high profile as the new Beastie Boys single, the show has regularly integrated new music into its storylines. The O.C.’s theme song, “California,” is by Phantom Planet, and the Southern California band Rooney was prominently featured in an episode.
An album titled Music From The OC is also now available in stores. In addition to tracks by Spoon and The Dandy Warhols, the enhanced CD includes actors’ commentaries about their favorite music and a guide to the specific scenes in which the songs were used.
