I grew up as a huge Beastie Boys fan. They were one of my first concerts and I've still got half their catalogue in my ipod. Beasties play in the background of a ton of my high school memories. What a S**t week.
god bless him, even though i never liked the band and the beastie boys made it to the rock HOF when legends like Journey, Rush, KISS, Jethro Tull, Hall & Oates, The Doobie Brothers, Chicago, The Cars, The Moody Blues and Yes didn't.
