Music Video of the Week

To my mind, the Beastie Boys are one of the best hip hop acts of all time and one of the best music groups of the last 30 years. They were also one of the few bands that I like more with every iteration – they got better as they got older, I think. I own every album, used to see them every couple of years (including the last show they did with Tribe), and it just never occurred to me that they wouldn’t be around forever.

Sadly, today we hear Adam Yauch, aka MCA, aka the only Beastie with some bass in his voice, has passed away from cancer at the age of 48.

  1. And this isn’t bad either.

  2. I like the Beastie Boys. I think they are often unfairly dismissed. But when you say “best music groups of the last 30 years” how many groups are on that list?

  3. On a separate note, I am frequently amazed by how much I have missed, musically. I just stumbled across Aesop Rock’s None Shall Pass. I think I like it even better than that Evil Nine Crooked thing you turned me on to some time back.
