This week saw the passing of Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch (MCA), at the age of 48. Over the last number of days there have been many wonderfully things said about the man, the Boys, and their influence on my generation… thoughts and stories more eloquent and coherent than I could ever say or share. It’s just amazing to see the impact he/they had, and sad to hear of his passing at a relatively young age.
I could share some of my favorite Beastie Boys songs below, but I just don’t even know where to start as there are so many, and you’ve all heard them before I am sure. You can’t go wrong with Paul’s Boutique and Ill Communication (I’ve practically had them on a loop since Friday) and if you’ve somehow never given these albums a listen, do yourself a favor and check them out.
Also check out these other fantastic arists & songs I have discovered since my last post, all over the place this week so there is a little something for everyone.
