      Man, I remember being a kid (I'm guessing 6 or 7) and getting the bus driver to play a friends License to Ill tape. We had to fight for the right.

      Because MCA deserves way more respect than that.

      Beastie Boys were a huge part of my childhood and teenage years. Definitley pouring one out for him.

      Very sad indeed. It makes me feel much older when stuff like this happens. Back when you are a kid, you never think 'one day I will be older and the Beastie Boys will die'. You think musicians will always live forever.

      Throwing this up here because it's a dope song and MCA gives a shout out to Utah. He used to come out here all the time to snowboard.

      Ill Communication is still my all time favorite CD.

      I was hoping to still have a chance to see them live.

      Licensed to Ill was the first album I really fell in love with, I listened to it non-stop.

      The tape is still at my parents' house.

      Both of those

      Ill Communication was my first tape and I first got a hold of it in 2nd Grade. I would sit on that stupid bus ride and listen to it every single day and take in every genre, style, and musical influenced they managed to cram together in that epic masterpiece. I didn't realize it until many years later but absorbing that album at such a young age was the driving force behind my eclectic and diverse tastes in music. Got' Dayum.

      I mean, for Christ's sake the percussion in Futterman's Rule is what drove me to pick up my first pair of drum sticks!

      I has sad.

      They just played fight for your right on the radio. My boss and I are in the age group that grew up on the beastie boys and so we just cranked it up and had a little dance party.

      I imagine there will be a substantial amount of Beasty Boys on tomorrows party music rotation. RIP, good sir.

      Edited to add: They never really slowed down either. I think their last CD is really good stuff.
