      Their videos are just fun to watch. Intergalactic is my favorite one. Even their newer stuff is great.



      Full version. All 29 minutes of it. Bonus VW content. And a tiny bit NSFW due to language. But hey, its the Beastie Boys.

      If you watch the full version make sure you check out the credits at the end. You might be surprised at who they managed to stuff in there.

      Perry Farrell remembers Adam Yauch

      I first saw the Beastie Boys when they came to L.A. and played an afterhours party. A couple of the guys from Jane's Addction, Dave [Navarro] and Stephen [Perkins], were with me. They were playing instruments in those days – they were kind of punk rock, and they had a reputation when they came out. We checked them out, and then of course when they exploded I remembered them.

      They came up together with us, in a way. They were on the East Coast and we were on the West Coast, but they came from Brooklyn – my family comes out of Brooklyn, too, and they're Jewish, so that was another connection. I saw they were wild, but they had a side to them that was very intelligent and I wanted to befriend them. So we had them play Lollapalooza in '94, which might have been, before Chicago, the best Lollapalooza we'd ever done. They went out on the road with George Clinton and the Smashing Pumpkins were there, too, and it was definitely one of the highlight years of Lollapalooza.

      Through the years, I kept in touch with Adam. When they did the Tibetan Freedom Concert, they invited me to perform with Porno for Pyros and again, I got to know them a little bit better. I remember we would have these relay races through the hallways in the hotels with just our friends, and a bottle of wine as the baton. It endeared me to him and to the Beastie Boys. I kind of felt like they were family, but once removed.

      When I saw Mike D a couple of weeks ago, I asked about Adam and how he was. And people don't know this, but I'd been trying to connect with Adam to get him to come out and do another Lollapalooza. After a while, I just stopped hearing back from him. And of course they hadn't performed since 2009, so not hearing anything wasn't good news. I would ask him about on the fringes, and I didn't really hear great things.

      The last time I saw Adam, they invited me to play Rock the Vote to get Obama elected. I brought out Etty [Lau Farrell, Perry's wife] and we performed as PerryEtty. That's a happy memory where we hung out for a really good cause. From there, I would text him every once in a while, see how he was feeling. He would text me really kind of sad things. He would say, "We're giving up our studio. If you want to use our studio, you can use it." I hung out with Tim Leary before he died, and he was giving away his clothing and stuff like that. It's really a very sad feeling; it's kind of like an estate sale.

      He's probably in a great place, and I'm thinking about him and everybody's prayers are with him. But there has to be a period of mourning, and now is the time.

      We have a show tonight in Alabama, and I'm just kind of thinking to myself, "How do I bring that Jane's Addiction party to these people when I feel so sad right now?" They were the Beastie Boys – they were all about life and fun and partying. Their songs are played when people want to get up and get out and have energy, and this band is now silent. He was a good guy – that's the thing that kind of strikes a really bad chord. He was a really good guy trying to help people, and all about being innocent and wild, and even immature if you want to be. He was really such a part of our party vernacular – our musical vernacular. That's where it gets me. It's a very gray day.
      Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just not their own facts.

      So, some random funk band from DC is suing the Beastie Boys and Capitol Records for illegally sampling two of their songs. The illegal samples were used on wait for it...

      Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique! WTF? How long does it take to figure this one out??

      Apparently the papers were filed shortly before MCA's death.

      Yeah... I saw that. Seriously...it took 30 years to figure that out? I'm hoping it gets tossed out.

      I'm sure the issue will go away, but only after lots of back and forth with lawyers and with a settlement. Money usually solves these sampling cases.

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1500901.html

      Today in really unfortunate timing: The Beastie Boys have been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over samples used on Licensed to Ill and Paul's Boutique.

      The suit was filed on May 3, the day before Adam "MCA" Yauch passed away. It's obviously extremely unfortunate timing, but hip-hop and R&B label Tuf America is going forward with the case, according to AllHipHop.

      Tuf takes issue with a number of the Boys' songs. The suit alleges that "Hold It Now Hit It" and "The New Style" (both off Licensed to Ill) illegally sampled "Drop the Bomb," a 1982 song by Trouble Funk.

      The label also claims the Beasties used bits of Funk's "Say What" for "Shadrach," off Paul's.

      Capitol Records is also named as a defendant in the suit. There's one big problem with the case -- Tuf is banking on laws that were passed after the release of both albums. The relevant copyright rulings weren't in place until the early '90s, and License to Ill and Paul's Boutique were released in 1986 and 1989, respectively.

      Writing on Slate, Matty Yglesias made the argument that an album like Paul's Boutique could never be made under today's copyright and case law. The album is thought to have as many as 300 samples, many that would have been near impossible to secure in today's music industry.

      Yauch passed away on May 4 after battling cancer of the salivary gland. A number of prominent musicians have Tweeted their condolences and support for the surviving Boys, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horowitz and Michael "Mike D" Diamond.

      Coldplay performed a tribute to the fallen legend, covering "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" at the Hollywood Bowl. The Red Hot Chili Peppers -- who were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year alongside the Beastie Boys themselves (MCA was unable to attend) -- also incorporated some of the Boys' songs into a recent performance.
      If the bolded is true then Tuf America doesn't have a leg to stand on and their lawyers are stupid *******s.

      I'm sure there is a statute of limitation that they've blown, even if the discovery rule applies and even if they're suing under a statute from the early 90s.
