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.

For me, as a Jew, I loved them in part because they were Jewish and cool. Up until then, Jews could be smart, funny, and/or successful, but there were no cool Jews before Ad-Rock, MCA, and Mike D.

steamingpile: So veganism is not a defense for cancer, no surprise.

Seems some of this is his fault since he was going to Tibetan doctors, was that because of his religion? Stupid move.


I'm so glad there's someone in this thread who has read up intensely and completely on Yauch's battle with cancer, and know absolutely everything he was doing to combat it. It's a shame to hear, from someone with such intimate knowledge, that Yauch was not receiving any other kind of treatment besides a new diet from someone in Tibet. And it's a shame that a dietary change, no matter what his reasons, couldn't possibly have made any difference at all what was left of Yauch's live, and that making some change, any change, had no chance of having even an emotional or psychological effect on how he dealt with facing death.

I'm so grateful to you, steamingpile for the deep thoughts, personal sensitivity and extensive knowledge you bring to every discussion on Fark, whether it's spouting off pointlessly about trivial facts surrounding the death of a musician, or spouting off pointlessly about how the color of someone's skin plays a role in their behavior.

You are a true treasure of these threads. Thank you. Sincerely, thank you.

I still love all these people who claim to have bought [Paul's Boutique] 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.


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.

keepitcherry: downstairs: keepitcherry: LOL. That just proves you have no farking idea what you're talking about. They were the first white guys to actually be taken seriously in hip hop. I can't think of a group with a more diverse group of fans. They appealed to people from the streets as well as the kids from suburbia. You're one of those douches who hates shiat they don't even have a frame of reference in.

And a hell of a diverse band in general. They didn't invent rap, but they were the Beatles of an entire genre. Rap, hip-hop, and all its derivitaves would be FAR different if they never came along.

Absolutely!


And don't forget, in 1986, white music listeners were NOT into rap. Rock was for whites, rap was for blacks. I was 10 at the time, going to a school that was 50% black/50% white.

No two ways about it... The Beastie Boys (and RUN-DMC to an extent) changed all that.

That's pretty farking monumental. Like Elvis and Beatles monumental.

Unless you're still stuck with the attitude of "all rap sucks because its a bunch of black people talking over sampled music". If that's the case, I can't help ya.

It was 1998 and my friends and I went to Windows On The World at WTC. It was a Tuesday night and was getting kind of quiet around 2am. Most people were going home. Three guys got up, with a dj in back, on the stage. Holy crap. The Beastie Boys. They did a short set for no reason other than to amuse themselves and entertain a couple of friends they were there with. And the last song in the set was Don't Sleep Till Brooklyn. Behind them was the East River and Brooklyn. I'm not sure if it gets more New York, or Brooklyn, than that.

I remember waiting outside the record store for Pauls Boutique to drop. I rode my bike to the mall with my boom box because I couldn't wait to get home to hear it. I rode around until my batteries died blasting that shiat. That tape changed my life and was a major part of my teenage sound track. When your heroes die it really sucks but when they are only a few years older than you are it hurts a little more. I'm sitting here crying over the death of a stranger, and to have that kind of impact on someone you never physically met is the sign of a well-lived life as an artist. Thank you.

Abe Vigoda will walk along the melted-glass corpse of the American coast - her water boiled off, her atmosphere blasted away by solar winds. There he will sit when the sun, red and bloated in its death throes engulfs the withered husk of our beloved home.

And he will laugh.

Because his Long Wait is at an end. He will jab a withered finger into the sun's distended Photosphere and cackle madly as he utters the words he's been waiting so long to say: "I beat you, you farker!"

And the sun will weep as Abe's laughter rings through its Convective Zone.

The Beasties made MTV in the 80s. Along with Madonna and Michael Jackson. They made tons of specials (MTV replayed them about 10 years ago, probably the around the last time they played videos). Really, would it kill the head of programming to take off a Saved by the Bell being re-run for the 1200th time and slap up some "Fight for your Right" or "Sabotage" ?
