"So What'cha Want" is the second single from the album Check Your Head by American hip hop group the Beastie Boys, released on June 2, 1992.
Beck used the rhythm track of the song as a sample in "E-Pro", the opening track of his 2005 album Guero. "So What'cha Want" is also featured as a playable song on Rock Band 2, along with "E-Pro".
The music video, directed by Nathanial Hörnblowér, simply has the Beastie Boys recite the song in a woodland area, with clips of DJ Hurricane and Money Mark interspersed throughout. The sky has a photo negative effect, a direct allusion to the werewolf point-of-view in 1981 horror film Wolfen. Similarly, the infrared style incorporated during the band cutaways are an homage to the hunter vision in Predator.
