Beastie Boy Adam Yauch Passes Away At 47

| Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad


So, so sad.

Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys passed away Friday at the age of 47.

MCA was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009, but was recently believed to be cancer-free.

The cause of death is currently unknown, and not necessarily related to cancer.

Our prayers go out to Adam's family,friends and loved ones.

    My God. Why the hell couldn't a no talent hack like Lady Gaga have died, instead of this musical pioneer.

    What!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(

  4. 4

    Trillions of dollars spent, making researchers filthy rich, but still no closer to a cure for cancer than 100 years ago….

    As a legend passes away, you keep on pimping Kat what's-her-name, Mario, and try to convince the world she has talent.

    Re: hoochpit – as much as I despise Lady Gaga, why would you wish such a thing on anyone? that kind of mindset will bring you nothing good.

    R.I.P. Adam. This is unreal, I grew up listening to the Beastie Boys in the 80's and 90's. Very sad, all the good artists are dropping like flies.

    Thought u ran a good sight here! My 5 yr old could do a better writeup! Factually he missed HoF two weeks ago bc of cancer was not recently cancer free and is MCA but not THE MCA. Terrible story read wiki and try again!

    Re: Harry
    It was his stage name, youu dumbass. Why do people come on this website to talk shit? R.I.P.

  15. 15

    That is so sad. We lost another great talent in the music biz. Condolences to his family. RIP Adam.

    Standard treatment for cancer: Cut, Poison, and Burn/Radiate….WHERE'S THE CURE?

    I am not a fan of Laga Gaga and can't stand her most of the time but I do not wish harm upon her, it's all entertainment and everyone has their taste of music, wishing she would die instead of another is just cruel an inhumane, she is a human being, hoochpit you should be ashamed of yourself. R.I.P. Adam Yauch (MCA)

  18. 18

    WHAAAAAATTTT!? Oh wow. R.I.P. He's so young. Thought they'd all be here @ 90, rapping.

  19. 19

    Why isn't he in the Breaking News banner. He's a big deal.

    Re: Harry – The group consisted of Mike D (Michael Diamond) (vocals, drums), MCA (Adam Yauch) (vocals, bass), and Ad-Rock (Adam Horovitz) (vocals, guitar) and Mix Master Mike (Michael Schwartz) (turntablist).Google it before you talk shit !

  21. LaraP says – reply to this


    No. No no no I refuse to believe it! God this SUCKS. We've lost some really, really big ones in 2012 so far — now MCA too? Devastated. Just looking at this list of 2012 celebrity deaths makes me so depressed. RIP MCA :(

    Re: Harry – If you were a beasty boys fan you'd know what MCA was. Dont talk trash when you dont even know what youre talking about

  24. 24

    That is sad. If not the cancer, I wonder what happened then. So sad. At least he left us with some groovy beats.

    RIP, but there music and lyrics sucked, " I like my coffee with sugar and cream" I mean clearly thy have nothing to say, not like they ever did.

  27. Katie says – reply to this


    Re: Jo – I think was Harry was referring to was the use of 'The' infront of MCA. Making it sound like an object rather than his stage name

  28. 28

    Re: lolcat – Yeah, LOL

  29. 29

    MCA! Where. Have ya been? No words. They took the wrong guy, he was too young to go.

  30. 30

    Re: anemov – Think you'll find the lyrics where actually "I like my sugar with coffee and cream". If you're gonna insult someone then at least get your facts right - Dickhead.

    Re: nyctreeman
    true, but I´m not sure if it causes bad karma if you wish to relieve the world from an useless, pretentious, reductive imposer. ;-)

    This is all he gets? But lets go on and on and on about Whitney Houston who died of an overdose, of what Kim Kardashians ass looks like or who shes banging this week..

  35. 35

    RIP Adam!

    Re: china
    Well, you're pretty useless and pretentious yourself. You must be bored silly in your rather pathetic life now that Perez doesn't mention GaGa anymore. I mean, what the hell are you going to do with your time now that you can't stalk her posts on here daily anymore?

    A brilliantly talented artist whose creativity never faltered. And just as important– a humanitarian and philanthropist. What a sad, sad loss.
