beastie boys back on billboard charts

After news of Adam MCA Yauch's death hit the music industry harder than a pile of bricks last week, fans went on a Beastie Boys shopping spree!

While the 1986 album Licensed to Ill reenters the Top 20 with 19,000 copies sold, overall album sales reach an astonishing 55,000 compared to the previous week's 4,000!!! WoWza…

Now, as far as digital songs go… pull up a chair!

The musical pioneers sold 151,000 downloads last week with the best-selling track being the classic Brass Monkey. Right after that fun lil' tune was of course Fight for Your Right, then No Sleep Til Brooklyn, with Sabotage and Intergalactic following right after.

Analysts predict even more sales within the next few weeks.

It's always bittersweet when the death of an artist acts as a catalyst for album sales, but we're just happy the world is jumping up and down to the refreshing beats of the Beastie Boys again!! R.I.P. Adam…

P.S! Pictured above are the boys with their producer Rick Rubin (with the beard) - vintage love!!
