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 tracks can have several thousand ratings)

With the Led Zeppelin´s When The Levee Breaks drums and Black Sabbath´s Sweet Leaf riff it´s just an incredible hard rock rap masterpiece
Sure Beastie Boys must have been a huge influence on Rage Against the Machine. The crescendo of the "Ali Baba and the forty thieves" part sounds a lot like the one found in "Killing in the Name" (or is it another RAtM song that I'm thinking of?).
Do the Beastie Boys have any "best of" albums? If this song is on NONE of them, I'm gonna flip.
I love how it plays the drums of Led Zeppelin's When the Levee Breaks throughout the whole thing, a debut track experience I did NOT expect at all.
