      I had no idea till I saw it on the top of Reddit

      I LOVED the BB when I was a kid. Girls was practically my anthem.

      I had their instrumental album that came out a few years ago (the name eludes me completely right now) playing in my car non-stop for the longest time.

      Damn. Le suck.

      I saw them at Coney Island High years ago in a secret show. $5 to see a few hardcore bands and all of a sudden, Beastie Boys got on stage and played everything from the album "Same Old Bull****."

      Egg Raid on Mojo! One of the best shows I have been to.

      I am convinced that any kid who did not grow up listening to the Beastie Boys, had a crappy childhood.

      pretty sad news.

      another big Ill Communication fan, that was a great album, easily my favorite Beastie Boys album, and one of my overall favorites.

      didn't so much care when they got all political though.

      I remember I was in 5th or 6th grade when "fight for you right" came out. I was into stuff like Def Leppard and Poison.

      Fight for you right to party changed everything for me. Next thing I knew it was golden era hip hop..

      Normally I'm that guy who doesn't get when people are all upset when someone famous dies and the news takes it over.. And I still don't think just because someone is famous they should get special attention alive or dead and that includes this time (I know the fact they are famous contradicts that..)..

      Still though I'm sitting here seriously bummed ever since my GF texted to tell me he died.

      Beastie Boys were the soundtrack my HS and college years, the group of friends I still talk to from then is partially connected through them. Hell we were singing their songs at the bachelor party and wedding for one of them just a few months back.

      Seen them in concert more then any other group, only Physical CD I've bought in the last probably 5 years was their latest one hell I pre ordered it!! I even have CDs of their old punk stuff..

      Now I'm upset it rained this morning and I drove my JSW not the jeep.. the drive home calls for blasting some beastie boys and driving shenanigans that right now only the jeep can get out of me.. The kid who got us all into beastie boys (grew up in brooklyn in the 80s) mom had a beat up dodge 600 convertible which was our vehicle of choice for nights we were out goofing off even though we all had our own cars.

      I'm right there with ya man. I found out at lunch today and I was getting text's left and right from my friends about it. For those that know me I'm a hardcore Beastie fan, I have give or take 25 CD's of them lots of them are B-sides. I still have all the posters of them from when I was growing up "now 33". I've seen them in concert @ 15 times. Last weekend one of my best friends who has been with me at everyone of the shows were talking about hopes that they go on tour again soon. We were planning on touring with them for a few states.

      I remember buying Licensed To Ill on cassette when I was a freshman in high school. Every now and then I play that album and Ill Communication on the boombox.

      Looks like he finally made it to Brooklyn... RIP

      With having two older brothers (40 and 35) and me being 30, I grew up listening to them while watching my bro's mess around on their Haro's... I will always remember ****ing around in middle school band practice, pushing the dork who played xylophone out of the way and then proceeding to play "Girls"...
