Ye, I remember when it was released and eagerly watching top of the pops to see if it made number one. I was shocked when it only got to number 5 and they didn't even play it. I can pin point that as being the exact moment I lost all faith in the top forty chart.

Sad news - Beastie Boys were real innovators in 85/86 and set up the mold for a whole generation of white hip hop acts from Limp Bizkit to Eminem!

The Beastie Boys - a trio of white Jewish teenagers - established themselves as one of the most respected groups in hip-hop at a time when white rappers were few.

Introducing the group at the Rock Hall, Public Enemy rapper Chuck D said the Beastie Boys “broke the mould”.

All the best to MCA in his new journey - to the Stars. . . Paul's Boutique changed my understanding of the power of music. Shake Your Rump the only rap I ever learnt, or ever want to. Thank goodness for what this man and his mates brought to the ears and minds of so many!!! (I know what I'll be listening to for the next few days, been too long anyway!)

I don't think there was a conspiracy to his death. If there is any interest in it, I would bring up that at the MTV awards, O believe it was in 1998, instead of going on a thanking spree he stopped and said 'all muslims are not terrorists'; strange moment in the speech, but it also seemed like he knew something was up. Make of it what you will.

Some funny nostalgia stuff on the beasie boys...



I remember when I was young and seeing this stuff on TV about how they stole VW badges and someone was telling them off for it. I liked them ever since.

Haha yeah, I must admit I was guilty of stealing a vw badge when I was younger and now I'm expecting karma to have someone take the vw badge off my car. Though I think car badge stealing was just something from back then and people don't do it now...hopefully

I remember it because a friend had an old VW camper van he was doing up and was worried some kids were gonna nick his badge lol.
What was the reason for the badge stealing? Some stupid Communist protest thing? Anti German thing?

Back then same year they were wearing and encouraging fans to wear Volkswagen and BMW badges they also had naked female dancers in cages and that was in all the tabloids - bit like they were the Sex Pistols. Then Eminem did it about 14 years latter, when he had a chainsaw on stage and all that crap! So these people all push the same buttons, partly to get the publicity.

Maybe it was juts a case of wow the beastie boy is wearing one let's go out and get our own!

In Britain, the VW necklace fad has become so popular that Volkswagen has felt obliged to offer free replacements to customers and replicas to rap fans. Volkswagen has given away thousands of emblems and smaller replicas, a spokeswoman said.

Yeah, Mike D loved to wear them. Nothing political about it, you had to have done some vandalism to get one then your showing off. Basically your saying your a badass.

It was BMW as well they were easier to get off.

Yeh it's stupid and irresponsible but that is what cultural (sheep) tribes do. I think it was 1988 that was the big Beastie Boys tour of the UK when they were in the tabloids with the girls in cages and people stealing car badges... Licensed to ill...

You see this ', okay that's what you use if you paraphrase ones quote. If I doubled it then I would be taking the exact quote. MCA said that 'middle-easterners are not terrorists'. Now, what part did you not understand -- when he said middle-easterners, did you not think he meant muslims which are kind of the majority when it comes to religion there?

I just saw a friend post this on Facebook. I wasn't a fan of the band but I have respect for Adam Yauch for saying what he did.
