The Beastie Boys axed plans to name their new album after pop superstar Beyonce Knowles because they feared offending her.
Drummer Mike Diamond reveals the working title 'Thick Like Beyonce's Leg' didn't make the final cut.
He tells British radio station X-FM: "I think its gonna be called 'The Mix-Up'. It's a little too sensible almost huh?
"I was a big fan of the title 'Thick Like Beyonce's Leg' but that didn't make the final cut for some reason.
"Beyonce's very talented and beautiful and she's probably stronger than we are...we didn't want to have any problems with her."
