Beastie Boys: Fight For Your Right Meaning
Song Released: 1987
Fight For Your Right Lyrics
You wake up late for school man you don't wanna go
You ask you mom, "Please?" but she still says, "No!"
You missed two classes and no homework
But your teacher preaches class like you're some kind of jerk
You gotta fight for...

Nope. This song is supposed to be a parody of actual teenage party anthems like "Smoking in the Boys Room.
They said themselves that it seems funny for them to see people that are wasted at their concerts, screaming the words, and completley missing the point.
It's about how teenagers have a buttload of Angst.
But, If you don't know this, then heck yeah, its about FIGHTING FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY!
Yes, I think it's about the whole "parents controlling me thing", but did anyone ever think that it was about parents being jelous because they no longer have their youth?" momma busted in adn said whats that noise, mommy just jealous it's the Beastie boys!" Jealous!!! and then "your pops caught you smoking and he said no way! that hippocrit smokes two packs a day!" I dunno either interpretation makes sense to me.

(To the above interpretation) They're saying "party" not "potty" and it's about not understanding all the adults telling you how to live your life.
