    Beastie Boys Founding Member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch, Dead at 47
    Adam Yauch, better known to music fans as MCA of the legendary hip hop triumvirate Beastie Boys, passed away today at the age of 47 following a hard-fought bout with cancer.

    Damn everyone I grew up to in the entertainment industry is passing away.

    I broke out my old CD's of them and I even still have some cassettes from them. I got a chance of seeing them in concert a few times during their prime. I can bet not many here are old enough to say that let alone remember them.

    Awww sh!t. I love the beastie boys. I saw them live a few years back at the Big Day Out festival. For a few songs they wore blue tuxes and played instruments while they rapped.

    I thought he had beaten his throat cancer :D

    RIP MCA.

    license to ill was THE first album I ever got. My grandpa bought it for me.

    I was disappointed to see it was an older B-boys CD because I had never heard any of the songs on it, but then I listened to it and loved it.

    Paul Revere is my favourite beastie boys song.

    never was a fan of the beastie boys. i just couldn't stand their music but i am grateful of them being pioneers to the music industry and brought change along with it.
