I was wearing my T two days ago..



Damn, I really got saddened over this, I usually don't give a damn when famous people die but I've been listening to their stuff since I was a kid...

What I always loved about them were that they always were so cool and humble.

Sad, and makes me feel so old.

I think I was 10 or 11 years old when License to Ill came out.

I remember "fight for your right" as an anthem of sorts that was always played at birthday parties and such.

Never got too into their "newer" stuff really, but their early stuff was the shizzle when I was a kid in the late 80s.

When i was in high school that first album was the shit. It was every white kids gateway drug into hip hop. Sad.

This just brings me so far back. License to Ill I think was the first tape I ever bought, which dates me in a couple ways. I sort of lost touch with the entire hip hop scene somewhere about the time Puffy became a big deal. But even now I've never stopped listening to Beastie Boy stuff. I saw them live twice, and both shows were among the best I've ever been too. I'm not sure there is a group this mainstream for whom no one seems to dislike. They strike so many chords. They manage to reach the edges of hipster white culture, punk rock, and still be so in touch with the roots of hip hop, that I'm not sure I've ever heard anyone ever, ever, never, have a BB song come on the radio or over my ipod and had them say, oh ... I hate this song. It doesn't seem to matter your taste or background, there's something purely energetic and rhythmic about there stuff that somehow works for everyone.


I got a facebook message from an old buddy after this news hit I haven't talked to in probably fifteen years. We went to one of those concerts together, and he wrote me a pm and we spent much of the workday bouncing back and fourth about that and all the other good times we had. He asked if I still had that blue BB ringer Tshirt with the ABA basketball logo on it that I wore to that show. I do. I just wish it still fit me.


And if anyone has any good cancer cure ideas out there we're all ears out here on earth.

A few days later and I am still troubled by this. The Beastie Boys were so important in the 90s to me and so many other like minded people in every city and town. I realize License to Ill came out in the 80s (but that never represented who they'd become) and Paul's Boutique (their best work) came out at the end of July '89, but it was the 90s that The Beastie Boys were the shit.
People always talk about pop stars and their influence on culture, but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with a greater influence on young people in the 90s then the Beastie Boys, they just brought it and were accepted by all, hip hop heads, alternative fans, rock fans etc...For people like myself, they were the ultimate band, never my favorite, but always in rotation (and even my favorites weren't always in rotation). Its like Q-Tip said they were: "Never ever ever f*ckin wack." They were cool as shit, and way more influential on culture than any pop act.

THIS.

Although I must say that they were my favourite band a long period but for some reason I stopped listening to their stuff. Since the sad news about Yauch hit the media I've been listening to their stuff a lot, it's a shame that you don't appreciate someone/something 'til they're gone..

their "best work" may have been in the 90s (obviously that is subjective), but they had the biggest impact in the 80s by far IMO.

If you grew up in the 80s then YOU KNOW every word to "Paul Revere"...

there are several tracks on Licence to Ill that are pretty much household names...

-"Girls"
-"Fight for Your Right (To Party)"
-"No Sleep Till Brooklyn"
-"Paul Revere"
-"Brass Monkey"

In the 90s, I understand that perhaps that was their better work, but for me personally there was so much other stuff in the rap world that decade that got in the way of it. I think it was like that for most everyone. I was too busy listening to Death Row/Wu-Tang/etc to really give much attention to the Beastie Boys...stuff like "Intergalactic" and "Whatcha-Want" were super popular but I don't think they had nearly the impact that Licence to Ill had to people in the 80s...just my take

My best friend is fighting cancer of the Lymph nodes, she's only 28 I was never huge into the Beastie Boys, but I have seen them live before and this really upset me. I guess I just assumed my friend was going to make a full recovery.

Really sad. RIP
