It’s a sad day in music as Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, also known as MCA passed away from his three-year battle with cancer. I remember like it was yesterday watching the “Fight for Your Right (To Party)” video on MTV hoping to someday be at a party just like that breaking guitars, throwing pies and kicking in doors.
At the time I wasn’t old enough, or even allowed for that matter, to own a Licensed to Ill, which by the way was the first rap album to reach number one.
Thanks to my older brother and his friends I was able to listen in my room when my Mom was at work.
The Beastie Boys were a big part of my life growing up and still are. Adam will most definitely be missed, but the music lives on.
We are all very fortunate that super producer Rick Rubin, Mike D, Ad-Rock and MCA came together over 20 years ago and gave us the Beastie Boys.
Today’s Flashback Friday is in memory of you MCA. Beastie Boys videos rule.
Do you like parties?
One of my all time favs.
You can’t front on that…
You can’t out run em…
