It's been 15 years since the Beastie Boys released To the 5 Boroughs, and to celebrate the occasion, they took to social media Friday (June 14) to announce the digital release of 12 rarities.   

The 12 tracks come as part of the album's digital deluxe edition, which also features the original record in its entirety. "Hello, everybody - To the 5 Boroughs came out 15 years ago today," the group tweeted. "For the occasion, twelve rare tracks have just been released digitally in addition to the original 15 songs on the album."  

   

Most of the new bonus tracks were previously only available as b-sides on CD singles. To the 5 Boroughs debuted at No. 1 when it was released in 2004.
