    Grew up on them - which would probably lead the young people to think they're old so they suck. WRONG. Beastie Boys ARE DEFINITELY worth a listen - they are timeless and fantastic! Crank up the "Brass Monkey"! :*)

    It was incredible at the time in the 80's, they were practically one of the only white rappers at the time and they could hold their own with the best of them. Marlon Wayans is right on the money. They were awesome! "Fight for the Right to Party" is a classic song now and it's as awesome now as it was over 20 years ago.

    It's really sad to hear of his passing at such a young age. R.I.P.

    Beastie boys are my all time favorite group and I am devestated about Mca. I also grew up listening to them and I even got to see them in concert here in Ottawa. I even play their insrumentals for my twin babies at night to fall asleep to. RIP…rock it out in heaven!
