News of the death of Adam "MCA" Yauch has been as pervasive as the music the Beastie Boy helped create.
Yauch and the Beastie Boys burst onto the music scene in the 1980s with their timeless hit, (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!). As a member of the Beasties, Yauch was an instrumental force in the group whose music transcended cultural divides of race and age and helped define and introduce to mainstream America a new genre of music called rap. You can read a full obituary on The New York Times.
Today, Coldplay's tribute performance is among the most popuar YouTube videos, climbing toward 2 million views and counting. Have a watch and, in memory of Adam Yauch, share your favorite Beastie Boys song in the comment section below.
