    There are several meanings for "Brass Monkey", but the Beasties were referring to the drink containing OJ, rum, and vodka. Better info, including a cool story about WW2 spies are at the link below. Hope this helps!!!

    Brass Monkey is an aloholic beverage as far as I know. I used to have that tape back in the day. I think there was another song on it where they mentioned Brass Monkey again, letting you know it was a drink. I could be wrong. It was years ago.
