The death of Beastie Boy Adam Yauch devastated the music world (and us) this past Friday.
While some celebs mourned the late MCA through Twitter, Coldplay honored Adam's playful spirit in a cover of Fight For Your Right, and comedian Fred Armisen donned clothing similar to the iconic rapper's during the closing credits of SNL.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers also payed tribute to their fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer at their Newark, New Jersey show Friday, playing versions of What'cha Want and Gratitude, which are both off of the Beastie Boys' 1992 album, Check Your Head.
"We lost a good man today. He left the world a lot of beauty. I hope you carry that flame. Adam was for real."
Check out the somber yet beautiful performance (above).
We are still in a state of shock over the tragic news… the world is a little less bright without the loving, positivite nature of the MCA.
