In contrast to their previous album, Paul's Boutique, the Beastie Boys returned somewhat stylistically to their punk roots on Check Your Head, playing their own instruments like they did on their earlier EPs. Hence, photographer Glen E. Friedman's idea to shoot photos with their instrument cases (one of which became the cover). Supposedly, a trading card with Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. from a set of Desert Storm trading cards was the inspiration for the title.
The album features the singles "Pass the Mic", "So What'cha Want", "Jimmy James", "Gratitude" and "Professor Booty".
