Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp, co-founders of the band One Ring Zero, decided to turn Chris Cosentino's recipe for Brains and Eggs into a song -- word for word, phrase for phrase, including "Remove the brains from the water with a perforated spoon and place on a plate." As if that wasn't tricky -- or bizarre -- enough, they asked Cosentino to recommend a music style. Beastie Boys, he replied. With an innocent grin... The result was a fast, raucous ode to white-boy hip-hop jams and edible offal that, not surprisingly, caused a fair degree of uncontrollable laughter in the studio.
