This is the first time I've teared up over a celebrity death since Kurt Cobain's suicide. I remember the first time I heard the Beastie Boys. It was my freshman year of college. A friend from high school was in the dorm room next to me and he told me to come over to listen to this new rap group. I didn't listen to rap music then as I was into Ozzy, Motley Crue, etc. so I was sure I was going to hate it. I went to see what he was so fired up about and he played "Paul Revere" for me and I was hooked within seconds. The next day, I went to Wal-Mart and bought the cassette. That was 26 years ago, and during that entire time, the BBoys have always been one of my top three favorite groups.

Thank you MCA for all the joy you have brought to me and millions of others.

Namaste

He drew his rhymes like a bow, shot 'em out like an arrow.

Got more rhymes than Jamaica got mangoes.

nucular bum: I didn't care for Licensed to Ill, but when Paul's Boutique came around, it made me a fan. What a great record, and has good memories to go with it. This makes me sad to hear that Adam "MCA" Yauch is dead. What a righteous dude. If the Buddhist cosmology that he believed in is correct, he's one step closer to ending the cycle of birth & death: reincarnation as a cat in a lesbian household.


I still love all these people who claim to have bought this album when it first came out when it took a decade to reach make money area. The album bombed yet everyone claims to have bought it the first week, I had it but only because we used it for jobs and I didn't like it until listening to it about a year and a half later.

Sorry to harp on this but I find it ironic everyone says they had it the first week.

Never could stand the beastie boys, their rap, or any of anything they ever produced. Now that that's said, good on him for all the work he did helping people as he could, and I'm sorry to see that he has died, as it seems many liked him. I hope he's at peace.

That's why it hit 14 on the Billboard 200 album chart in 1989 and was certified gold, a half million copies sold, two months after it was released. It was hardly a bomb.

Let it go man. I haven't seen more than a couple of people claiming to have appreciated Paul's Boutique immediately upon its release in this thread. I was 10 when License to Ill came out. I bought it like everyone else. I was 13 when Paul's Boutique came out and in no position to appreciate it. I was 17 when Ill Communication came out and that's when I rediscovered their earlier work and realized how phenomenal PB was. Who cares, as long as you appreciate it when you are able to? It's not a race.

fark, I didn't own Revolver until 25 years after it came out. Guess I don't really like it.

It was a bomb, read the history of the album.

And you are talking about 500k? When it took another 6 years to reach a million then until 99 to get 2 million which is still a shiat load less than their first album. But yet everyone says "oh I had it since day one".

Yes and revolver was released when you were 3. I didn't like it at 1 either.

Fact remains its not just here, its everywhere that people scream about owning that album the first week and its statistically impossible. The album was considered a sales bomb in '89, since after the first week it sold for shiat.

Personally I didn't appreciate it until I started doing lots and lots of coke with Hooters chicks, then it kicked ass

I remember being 13 or 14 and riding my bike to the mall in the next town over to buy "Licensed To Ill" on cassette. It had to be that way - no way in hell would my parents have ever bought it for me or allowed me to have it had I not sneaked it into the house.

Listened to that tape to death.

I hated "Paul's Boutique" when it came out. I couldn't get into it. Years later when my tastes had developed I realized what an amazing album it was. It's one of the few records that I refuse to know the names of songs - everything on there as a whole an in order is an experience unrivaled.

It hurts to see anyone go this young, especially when they're this talented. But I take some comfort in knowing there are kids out there hearing this and the hub-bub and will go out and pick up their albums and drink and fornicate and enjoy them as they were truly intended to.

MCA...your life was too short. But while you were here you rocked the house...and for that we thank you.

Peace out brother.

Back in 94 I went to Utah for spring break. Riding up on the gondola with us to the diamond trails was the man himself MCA. All I said was "you rock" while getting our skis and he was getting his board off the side of the car. He was cool and said "thanks man " and then took off blazing fast down through the moguls. We tried to catch up but I busted up both my legs when I popped out of my bindings while trying to navigate around those damn things!

Michael Jackson rejected the clearance for sampling his Beatles catalogue, that's why they were gonna call the album "Don't Be A F****t" by way of their reply(that's partially why they signed with Capitol, so Mike D could clear his sample The Beatles-as an Industry friend put it "No way could they do those first 2 albums today)
KROQ's Rick Carroll remembered he got it on a sampler @ a (CMS?) Conference & threw it on theair, it was #1 for the Furious 5 til Jackson's lawyers sued it off the air

The whole "RIP picture of a guy who isn't the guy" bullshiat never has been and never will be funny.

Back in high school, our marching band director gave us in the percussion section free reign to write our own cadences. For four full years, our cadences were all based off of the "License to Ill" record. If I recall correctly, "Girls" was the only song we didn't use for inspiration.

When I was in the 6th grade (1986) one of our neighbors (military sp) moonlighted as a bouncer for a small club called Hammerjacks in Baltimore Maryland. My dad (and this still blows my mind) had gotten an album of the single 'Hold it now hit it' and long story short i got to go see the Beasties preform months before License to Ill came out and it was pretty amazing. I have all their CDs and as much obscure bboy related downloads a person can have. I saw them in concert 4 times total throughout my life and they never disappointed.

White kids in the hood instantly got some weird sort of street-cred for a while after License to Ill came out. I always appreciated the Beasties for that.

I've always been pissed that a lot of black media and a lot of black rappers completely write the BBoys off as some sort of gag rap group that didn't have solid songs and beats. Hopefully with MCAs passing they'll finally find it within their... hearts to show some respect.

And then Paul's Boutique came out, which really was the best thing ever.

This many times over.
HUGE album.

Have you heard "Hot Sauce Committee"? It was just released last year, and it's every bit as good as anything they've done, IMNSHO.

hsc blasting in my ears right now. damn good stuff, but i'm sorry they didn't do more non-rap stuff...i love all their stuff, but i thoroughly enjoyed the change of pace with their instrumentals, and of course when they'd throw in some punk-flavor even on their 90s and 2000s releases


There is a French release of their best instrumentals (imo). rare. L my fave.

I was playing bass in a punk band in '95 and "Fight for Your Right" was one we would cover. The lead singer and I would bounce lines until the last doublet and then bounce words, then the whole band did vocals on the chorus. One show he and I had a brain fart and changed the 3rd verse words from "I'll kick you out of this house if you don't cut that hair" to "I'll kick you out of this house if you don't CUT HAIR", both of us said CUT and HAIR but neither said that. Drummer had to finish the rest as we were cracking up. I'm sure the Beasties would have been laughing at our cover and then hit the floor when we screwed up that line.
RIP MCA! You and the Boys always made me smile.

Sad times.

Someone with Wikipedia access please PLEASE delete the following and replace it with a quote from someone he would have wanted to make an impact on... like anyone in hip hop.

"Joel Madden of Good Charlotte said of the Beastie Boys: 'We wanted to dress like them, talk like them, and we wanted to make music like them.'"

it's like quoting the singer from Matchbox 20 on his solo career when Paul dies saying "I was inspired completely by the Beatles."
