In my defense, though, I was twelve. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure that some of my other friends did figure that out at that age.

The Beastie Boys have talked about how they really hit fast enough that they never really got a chance to establish that their personas were supposed to be silly exaggerations of a type of band, and they were instead seen as simply examples of the things that they were trying to poke fun at.

It was meant to poke fun at hair metal songs like "Party All Night" and "Nothing But A Good Time" and all that.

From reading that, it sounds like this song is only recognizable as parody if you watch the music video. I've never seen it, only heard the music.
