      RIP and thanks for all of the great music over the years.

      I know there's more than a few people around here who grew up listening to these guys. What's your most memorable Beastie Boys moment? For me it's high school, spinning albums (Ill Communication and Intergalactic) after school. Those were the days! Wish I could've seen them in concert but I never got the chance.

      This is kinda interesting and posted for VW content:

      In 1986, US rappers The Beastie Boys started to appear on stage with Volkswagen badges around their necks. This unlikely fashion statement sparked a mini crime-wave. Fans throughout the world descended on parked Golfs and Polos and pried off the coveted ‘VW’ badges with screwdrivers. Then they strung them and wore them as pendants, thus aping their heroes and demonstrating their fearless street nous.

      The manufacturers responded by ordering up enough replacement badges to fill a room four-feet wide by eight-feet deep.

      Although the craze eventually died down, a spate of VW badge theft was reported in Yorkshire as late as 2000.

      That's sweet man! Closest I ever got was watching "Awesome I F!@#ing Shot That" which was a really cool concert video for those who aren't familiar with it. They gave 50 concert-goers video cameras to record the show then took all the footage and edited it into a movie.

      Was this when they played with rancid and someone called Asian dub foundation or something like that.
      it was so long ago like 1999 or 2000 if so it was an amazing show.

      YES!!!

      They stopped the show and were telling the two guys down in front to stop fighting.

      I was flipping channels last night and on one of the movie channels they were airing the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

      Right when I turned it on Chuck D and LL Cool J were starting their speech to induct The Beastie Boys. So cool! Then a bunch of people I've never heard of and Kid Rock did a rocked out medely of all the popular Beastie tracks. Made might night and weekend seeing that!!
