Adam Yauch R.I.P.

The first time I saw the Beastie Boys was at Nassau Coliseum on May 11, 1995. It still remains in my top 5 shows of all time.

I’ll cut off the part of your brain that does the bitching
Put it in formaldehyde and put it on the shelf
And you can show it to your friends and say that’s my old self
