    I'm an Ad Rock fan, but MCA's voice gave the Beaties Boys something different. R.I.P.

    Really sad about this.
    I think we'll all remember him as the one of the pionieers of Hip Hop and Rap in general, a person that really influenced the "scene", and I believe without him (and the Beastie Boys) Rap wouldn't be there, where it is now.

    R.I.P. MCA!
    Rock that mike in heaven!

    I read that today. That sucks. The words I want to use aren't very AUP friendly, so I'll leave it at that.

    Not a big Beastie fan, but still a tragic loss for the music world. RIP

    God damn, I was really hoping he'd pull through when he made that cancer announcement.

    One day, we will get you cancer.

    Incredibly sad. I've been a huge fan of the Beastie Boys for a large part of my life and this just....isn't right. :(

    R.I.P MCA.

    Huge bummer. It's sad knowing that there'll never be any more Beastie Boys releases. Rest In Peace. :(

    I read this on the train today and was put into a worse mood for the day - growing up listening to the Beastie Boys molded my musical tastes even to this day. MCA and the gang are deservedly legends, and he will always be remembered. My dad went through the same type of cancer a few years back, and is now in remission; I was hoping Adam would pull off the same feat.

    RIP Adam Yauch. Time to drink a Brass Monkey :(

    Was never a big fan as someone else said earlier, but a tragic loss nonetheless.

    At least he went out a fighter, as it seems like many other musical talents that have passed away as of recent couldn't have made that claim. It almost makes it seem unfair when you see one artist passing away due to drugs and suicide, or other cowardly acts, that another artist that fought a good fight and generally loved their life have to go.

    One great thing about making music that people love, is even in death, you'll be immortal either way.

    You can Sabatoge it to your heart's content now. R.I.P Adam Yauch and thanks for contributing to some of the best music that kept on coming.

    I wasn't even aware Yauch had cancer, so the news caught me by surprise. R.I.P Adam Yauch.

    Sabotage has always been amongst my all-time favorite songs.

    I'm not one of those people who is going to start claiming they are a huge Beastie Boys fan or anything. But I liked some of their songs. And MCA is a talent that will be missed. That's for sure. I was aware he had cancer, but I thought it was in remission.

    Rest in peace.

    What amazed me of this is how young he was. It sucks. Rest in peace.

    Bye Eggman, you will be missed. :(

    Which came first, the chicken or the egg? I egged the chicken, and then I ate his leg

    (eggman was supposedly a graffiti artist in NYC, by the way)

    I think the tough part about this acceptance it is their longevity, especially in the rather transient, living-in-present world of hip-hop. By bridging old and new-school rap and all sorts of other genres (jazz, funk, pop, R&B, rock, punk, classical, world) into their styles and backgrounds, they managed to stay relevant to their fanbase, but mostly obscure enough, even after their latest hit would crack through the airwaves every 3-4 years or so.

    A lot of Beastie fans wondered if they would ever sell-out, and they never did...well, I have no doubt Mike D and Ad-Rock wouldn't spoil things in memory of 25+ great years with MCA.

    I just remember that the first ever cd I bought was (well it were 3 cds, but of of them was the Beastie boys.) Check your head, in 92 or 93.

    Gonna search for a complete discography now.

    Let's hope so.

    On a slightly related note we may actually have a very bad future for health in general due to all of these new viruses and diseases. For example, a slight mutation of the Flu virus could become disastrous. It's a shame we have yet to conquer these things (like the medical professionals claimed they had done back in the 60's).
