Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some artists can have several thousand ratings)

I love what they brought to hip hop. Much respect to them. Unfortunately, I find them annoying to listen to a lot and I do believe that compared to a lot of other acts, they are slightly over-rated by people who don't understand hip hop. That being said, Beastie Boys are legends in their field.
Musical game changers that started out as a hardcore punk band as documented on the album Some Old Bullshit and evolved into a group who rapped over samples of rock and popular culture and their own instruments coming up with something original and highly entertaining.
Combine rap, hip-hop, jazz, funk, rock and a whole lot of wit in their rhymes to create some of my favourite albums of all time. MCA was a hell of an MC too.
Key Albums: Paul's Boutique, Ill Communication, Licensed to Ill
Key Songs: Year and a Day, Sure Shot, Ch-Check It Out
Very solid band.
There's a lot for aspiring musicians to take away from the first four studio albums. Beastie Boys have a way of maintaining their consistent sound but still maintain some level of variance between each of them.
The best rap band ever!
I agree with captain dude, paul's boutique is amazing and the rest of the albums are inconsistent... but still a lot of great tracks.
Best rap act ever !
RIP MCA... These white boys from New York redefined the genre twice. First, when they infused hip-hop with a punk rock attitude, second, when they added funky jazz samples and loops to their tracks. One of my all-time favourites.
