Adam Yauch (MCA), Mike Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) of the Beastie Boys attend the Run DMC Press Conference on Nov. 11, 1987.

Three months before the Spike Jonze-directed Beastie Boys Story documentary hits Apple TV+, the first trailer dropped on Monday (Jan. 27).

“Now here’s a little story that I’ve got to tell/ About three bad brothers that you know so well," the Beastie Boys rap to open the trailer, fittingly reciting lines from "Paul Revere."

The 38-second scene then flashes through a montage of archival footage. The doc will feature  bandmembers Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz discussing their illustrious career and decades-long friendship.

A special version of the feature documentary will open exclusively in select Imax theaters beginning April 3, before the film debuts on Apple TV+ on April 24. Watch the trailer below.
