    Very sad. He was an amazing man. I always loved the Beastie Boys and he put out a ton of great films through Oscilloscope.

    A really great artist gone too damn soon. Sad to hear the news and sending best wishes to his loved ones, for whatever that's worth. Cancer really sucks.

    There was a time when I knew every lyric on Paul's Boutique. There was about a year stretch where I listened to basically only that album. He was always my favorite. This is sad.

    I grew up on this shit. Beastie Boys License to Ill was one of the first albums (tapes) I ever bought.

    This is bullshit. Fuck it.

    He had all the ideas for Star Wars, and EVERYTHING.

    Time to pass the mic to Yauch, God.

    The Beastie Boys have been a cornerstone in all my music collections since the mid-90s. I can't even process this.

    I bought License to Ill on a tape and I listened to it until the tape inside actually broke.

    No mockery was intended, sorry if you interpreted it that way.

    It's easy to forget now, but man that album was a mindfuck when it came out. Just seemed to confuse the shit outta 90% of their fan base.

    "As cool as a cucumber in a bowl of hot sauce" is the lyric I keep thinking about.

    Spent the entire Saturday listening to Check Your Head and some of Boutique. I thought a lot about growing up listening to Licensed To Ill, rapping with friends on top of my parents' garage when I was still in high school. Great times. He's missed greatly.

    Re: RIP MCA of the Beastie Boys

    This verse is one of my favorites.



    I love that it drops in the middle of the song. It comes out of left field. Sure Shot feels like your basic rap bragging song. Then this real deep shit drops. Women in songs are so often disrespected, hated, lusted after, or seen as some distant object of longing, but almost never treated as humans.

    One of the things I loved about the Beastie Boys is that they cast such a wide cultural and musical net. They showed you it was ok to like disco, punk rock, rap, jazz, classic rock, jazz fucking flute. All of it was fair game. They opened the doors and let anything good in.

    I remember MTV doing a list of mistakes for the year when Paul's Boutique came out. The Beastie Boys were being chastised for trying to bring back the 70's. There was still a lot of "Disco sucks" attitude floating around. (Even in 1989.) Bell bottoms were still a punch line. People had not started being nostalgic about the 70's. Fans expected a Licenses to Ill style follow up. They said fuck ya'll. That album took massive balls.

    After the video for So What Cha Want I bought as many ring tees as I could find at my local Goodwill.

    Fuck cancer.
    RIP MCA

    Re: RIP MCA of the Beastie Boys

    It's weird how when I see people talking about their love for the Beastie Boys, it almost always seems to be a memory of how it affected them in their youth but for me the Beastie Boys have been a consistently big and constant influence in my life well into adulthood. I still have a couple Beastie Boys posters up, I still have numerous Beastie Boys t-shirts I wear on a regular basis and I still listen to their albums in my car pretty much every day. They've been a part of my life on a daily basis for so long that it's really hard to comprehend that one of them is gone and it's over. Right now it just feels like we're in another one of those 6 or 7 year waits in between albums, it doesn't even seem possible that that wait is now going to be endless.

    I just have the biggest mish mash of Beastie Boys lyrics bouncing around in my head. It won't stop. (And it don't stop.)

    I don't listen to hip-hop ever, really. I'm not some weird old creep who thinks it isn't real music or something. I've tried several times to get into it, but hip-hop just isn't my thing.

    That being said, I could listen to "Shake Your Rump" a thousand times in a row and never get bored. It's impossible to not like the Beastie Boys. Even a casual observer like me understands that Adam Yauch was about as awesome as it gets when it comes to, ya know, living. May his soul find even greater peace after life (which, by all accounts, would be no small feat).

    Re: RIP MCA of the Beastie Boys

    I always thought it was interesting that black rappers gave them so much respect, even though they were a pretty "white" hip hop group. Even when I wasn't following their career that made me think highly of them - like, they must be a pretty good group of guys to still have that "street cred" and be doing the stuff they were doing.

    I obviously have nothing interesting to add to this conversation.
