Coldplay Fights for Their Right to Party

8/14/2009 2:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's a serious internal conflict raging over this recent video of Coldplay covering one of the Beastie Boys' most iconic hits -- "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)."

On one hand, it's cool because Coldplay stepped up and filled in for the rappers, who had to cancel shows so MCA could deal with some cancer treatment.

On the other hand ... they turned one of the greatest party songs ever into a wussified, piano bar ditty.

So where do you stand...?

Seems to me that even though it was a bit of a "joke", what else would anyone expect from Chris Martin except what he does well? (which is naturally more geared towards the "Coldplay" sound) Ok, this one isn't exactly headed to becoming a top "ten", but still it's in HIS styling. If he'd have tried to perform it in more of a Beastie Boys style, then he'd have been ridiculed for doing that, too. Lighten up people!
