RIP: Adam Yauch Of The Beastie Boys

Watch Video

We were heartbroken to hear of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch’s passing today, after a protracted battle with throat cancer. Yauch, who also went by MCA (and Nathanial Hornblower) was an integral part of the Beasties from their beginnings as an early ’80s hardcore band through their most recent release, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. The band’s outstanding thirty year career earned them a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last month, though Yauch was too ill to attend the ceremony. We are deeply saddened to learn he lost his fight against cancer, but pleased to learn that heaven just got a little bit more Beastie. Enjoy their amazing Spike Jonze-directed video for “Sabotage” and share your favorite Beastie songs and videos in the comments. [Global Grind]
