You may not have heard of Adam Yauch, but you have probably heard of the Beastie Boys.
Yauch – better known as MCA – was one of three members of the legendary hip-hop group from New York City. He died from cancer early this month.
Yauch and the rest of the Beastie Boys were famous for wild, silly songs and wild, silly behaviour.
A perfect example is their most famous song: “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party).”
Yauch taught himself to play the bass guitar in highschool and formed the Beastie Boys for his 17th birthday party along with the group’s two other members: Michael “Mike D” Diamond and Adam “Adrock” Horovitz.
