Thank you, MCA

Adam Yauch, 1964-2012

Rest In Peace, MCA. The Beastie Boys changed the world, we will never forget you. Peace to you, peace to your family, peace to Mike D and Ad-Rock. We send our love and condolences.

As Mike D said, what an amazing thing that the Beastie Boys could make an entire career without ever having to mature past the 8th grade.

But, for all of us 40 + yr olds, 8th grade was the pinnacle of our existence – so, thank you, MCA and the Beastie Boys, for giving us the opportunity to stay young and stupid for all these years. We will miss you.
