    I remember that too. We played the first side so much it wore out, that was before we ever got to the second side.

    Beastie Boys kicked ass. They were a big part of my teenage years.

    I remember in High school (pre cellphones) when people would ask what time is it, I'd always reply, "it's time to get ill". RIP MCA

    Shame to see him go at such a young age. Their music came to me at the exact right(or wrong) time in my the teenage years. Hopefully they finished their final album.

    On a lighter note, anyone who hasn't seen this should definitely check it out. Its a funny promotionl video they released before their last album. Thought it was cool that all the stars in it donated their time.

    It's horrible that someone ( time and time again ) this young has died from such a horrible disease. Hopefully in the next 15-20 years genomic specialized cancer treatments will be in full effect giving anyone with cancer a better chance of getting it cured. Bioscience industry has come a long way to cure people like MCA, including the production of an ( comparatively speaking ) inexpensive genome. Genomics is the future of medicine people, it's just too bad it's not far advanced enough to have saved another life, MCA or the kid down the block dying of Leukemia.
    With that said, it's scary how a cancer like throat/mouth cancer can metastasize like MCA's did. I'm sure none of us have the real scoop on it, however, it's a damn shame that people day in and day out have to suffer with this horrendous disease.

    I saw this posted on Twitter today, an amazing list of all the songs sampled on all their albums.

    I was more into Classic Rock when these guys started out, and I was pretty pissed they were ripping off Led Zeppelin riffs for their first album when it first came out.

    But the songs are catchy and you can't deny they had something going on. As time went on and they showed they were more than a one trick pony is when I started to appreciate them. I am still not their biggest fan (still not a huge rap fan), I do like sabbotage and intergalactic, but cancer sucks and Adam Yauch was too young to pass away. He was only 2 years older than me.


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    To be fair Led Zeppelin ripped off a ton of people and only recently began to admit it. Go check out the changes in song writing credits listed now compared to an old Zeppelin album.
