Today the Beastie Boys and the world lost Adam "MCA" Yauch after a 3 year battle with cancer. Super bummed that I never got to see them play live, especially after they had to pull out of headlining Lollapalooza a few years ago after Yauch was diagnosed. I really thought he'd be fine and they would tour again...

I'm struck by how far reaching their music was after seeing the wide range of my friends posting on Facebook, and now seeing that the Beastie Boys currently take up five of the top ten trending Twitter topics. But I suppose I shouldn't be. They never became a nostalgic act, they've stayed relevant since 1985 by constantly paving new music, right down to last year's Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
