PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)— A law allowing police in a Rhode Island beach town to place orange stickers on
homes that host raucous parties is constitutional, a federal judge has ruled, saying the First Amendment
does not guarantee a “right to party.”

Police in Narragansett have given out hundreds of stickers since 2005 under a town law intended to curb
loud gatherings and rowdy behavior, particularly among students from the University of Rhode Island who
rent homes off-campus during the school year.

Students challenged the ordinance, saying the stickers amounted to public humiliation and interfered with
their right to gather. Landlords also sued, saying the stickers made it hard for them to rent out their

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

(chorus) You gotta fight for your right to party

You pop caught you smoking - and he said, "No way!"
That hypocrite - smokes two packs a day
Man, living at home is such a drag
Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Bust it!)

(repeat chorus)

Don't step out of this house if that's the clothes you're gonna wear
I'll kick you out of my home is you don't cut that hair
Your mom busted in and said, "What's that noise?"
Aw, mom you're just jealous - it's the Beastie Boys!
