"Rock Box" Track of the Day: Beastie Boys, "Shambala"

Frank McPike has gotten much less dorky since he quit the FBI and ditched his habit of making random Tarzan yells.
Song: "Shambala" by the Beastie Boys
Released: 1994
Why's it part of the "Rock Box" playlist?: It's featured in the Breaking Bad third-season finale "Full Measure."
Which moment in "Full Measure" does it appear?: A Beasties instrumental from Ill Communication that contains Tibetan monk chants and references to Adam Yauch's Buddhist beliefs, "Shambala" accompanies the not-so-pacifist sequence where Mike (Jonathan Banks), the ex-cop-turned-cleaner who works for drug tycoon Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), wipes out four Mexican cartel members at a chemical supply warehouse.
