It's one of my biggest regrets. I never saw the Beastie Boys live, and I LOVE the Beastie Boys. But something always came up. If the past couple of years have shown anything, it's go see your favorite artists while you can. I'm grateful I got to see Soundgarden a few years ago.

Back in 2012, I saw the story pop up on my Facebook feed. Adam Yauch, AKA MCA, of the Beastie Boys had passed away. Now this wasn't as shocking as the more sudden deaths we've had recently because MCA had been battling cancer. But still, he was really young and there's no way he was going to lose that battle. Unfortunately he did. So let's celebrate what would have been his 53rd birthday, with some of the best of the Beastie Boys, courtesy of Beastie Boys VEVO.
