Sizzy Rocket Covers Beastie Boys' "Girls"
Sizzy Rocket, a savvy 22-year-old songwriter signed to Universal (Rocket co-wrote the Timeflies single, “All the Way” and a song on their album Yeah) has recorded her own version of the Beastie Boys' track and converted into a pro-woman anthem.
"I was never targeting the Beastie Boys with my cover flip," she told BuzzFeed. "I love them and I take a lot of my punk influence from them. I tried to keep that attitude in the cover. I’ve always wanted to do a statement piece on female empowerment and I saw the opportunity in this record.”
