RIP Adam Yauch

I just found out that Adam Yauch (MCA) from the Beastie Boys just passed away after fighting cancer since 2009. Love them or hate them, the Beastie Boys were so important in the roots of hip hop and it’s such a shame to hear this news.

Here’s some songs in honor of MCA:

  1. You’re right, that’s very sad… I didn’t know that he was ill. It’s funny how people go out of the limelight and they sort of go out of your mind. I like the Beastie Boys. RIP.

  2. This is terrible news to me. The Beastie Boys were one of my absolute favorite musical groups. I am so sad to hear this. No matter what mood I was ever in, I could listen to their music and feel good. I feel like MCAs passing marks the passing of an equally special and unique era. RIP MCA

    • Yeah, and I think this will probably be the end of the BB. I don’t think the other guys would replace him or go on without him

    • Can I ask a question that isn’t meant to be provocative?

      I don’t know a great deal about The Beastie Boys, so I’m wondering if this is a sweet comment or something that’s supposed to get a chuckle? (Apologies for my ignorance here). It just made me think of Paul Hester’s suicide back in 2005, I remember thinking it was deliberately distasteful when I heard that a Canadian DJ had said “Well I guess the house is a little less crowded now.”

      • No Sleep till Brooklyn is the title of the only good Beastie Boys song, seemed right. I don’t know who Paul hester is.
