Beastie Boys’ MCA Dead At 47

Beastie Boys founding member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch passed away this morning after a three year battle with cancer. From having their music in multiple skate videos (Mike Carroll’s Questionable part had all of us listening to Check Your Head), having skating in their music videos, and being skaters themselves, we will forever be tied to their pioneering music. Rest in peace.
