SAN FRANCISCO - A Northern California toy company is fighting for its right to parody a popular Beastie Boys song.

Oakland-based GoldieBlox filed a lawsuit in federal court seeking permission to continue using a spoof of the rap song "Girls." The song was on the trio's first album, "Licensed to Ill," released in 1986. It sings of the desire for girls to "do the dishes ... to do the laundry ... to clean up my room."
