Read the rest.

Seriously upsetting news. It's not often that a celebrity passes away and I pay more than cursory condolences, but this fella and his mates were the music of my generation.

I'm seriously all sad and shit. This is fucked up.

Spent many a weekend banging out to beastie boys growing up, and had the fortune of seeing them live many times.

Will be sorely missed - not a good way to wake up on the weekend

RIP MCA, this is truly a sad sad day for music and hip hop. Besides their music which I grew up on, he seemed like a really nice person from all reports and did some amazing work as an activist.

Check your Head and Ill Communication got me through my teenage years and this is truly sad news. I also caught them live in 2005 at the Hordern in what I could only describe as a perfect concert.

RIP MCA

"My name is M.C.A.
I've been coming to where I am, from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul..."

This was the worst thing to wake up to. I've been such a fan of the Beasties for years and I would have given anything to see them one more time. Every Beastie Boys album has been a constant highlight in my music collection - Ill Communication was a massive part of my developing love for hip hop. I honestly can't tell you just how much the Beasties mean to me hey.

Fuck.

RIP MCA

First celebrity death in some time where I've actually felt genuine remorse and respect for the man. RIP. Fantastic musician in every sense of the word and an even better person. The people of Tibet are richer for having his support.

Posting my favourite. Not exactly iconic, but showed just how diversely talented MCA was.

Sad news. One of the great acts of our time, I feel fortunate to have seen them on a number of occasions.
As Bede said, first time I have been upset over a celebrity death in a while.
Check it ****s.

Police had to rule out sabotage first, maybe that's why it took a while.

I'm not all that into Coldplay either, but that was brilliant! Got me some chills with the crowd singing "Mom you're just jealous, it's the Beastie Boys"

This is an interesting mix of mainly b-sides & remixes, can't say I'd heard half of them.

Worth a listen.
