"Gratitude" is a song by American hip hop group the Beastie Boys, from their third studio album Check Your Head. It was released on April 21, 1992 as the fourth single for the album, primarily serviced to modern rock radio.
The bass guitar in the song uses a distortion pedal. The song was included in the video game Guitar Hero 5.
The music video to this song is a homage to the 1972 concert film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii and was recorded in Rotorua, New Zealand. The video was featured on Beavis and Butthead, who gave the song a positive review.
After touring with the Beastie Boys as their opening act, the Rollins Band often interweaved their own version of "Gratitude" (with new lyrics improvised by Henry Rollins) into their live set during their 1992 tour.
Post-hardcore/punk band Refused covered this song on their Demos Collection....
