  1. Adam 'MCA' Yauch's Will: Late Rapper's Music Cannot Be Used In Advertising

    :metal:

  2. Fuck yes. RIP MCA
     

  3. Ditto!

    Love the Beastie Boys... one of my favorite bands of all time :)
     
  4. Tripace- I didn't think you supported intellectual property laws?
     
  5. While I support him and (usually) support his ideas, this is just a little ridiculous.

    What could be the harm in allowing your music to reach even more people?
     
  6. I will admit that it's a bit ironic considering that they made their career out of sampling other people's music (Paul's Boutique, anyone?)

    But I still love them, and support an artist's right to have full control over their product.
     
  7. I love the Beasties. I saw them when I was 14, they were the first real concert I ever went to. Paul's Boutique is still one of my favorite albums.

    I imagine he was thinking that he doesn't want a computer generated Beastie Boys selling us Pepsi or whatever in ten years.

    Considering a few certain rhymes of MCA's, this move is unsurprising.

    triple trouble

    putting shame in your game

     

  8. I saw them live at Lollapalooza 1994 in San Diego. To this day, it is still one of the best live shows I've ever seen. :)
