Rest In Peace, Adam Yauch

 

As many probably now know, Adam Yauch, co-founder of the Beastie Boys, passed away this morning after battling cancer for three years.

Inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April, the Beastie Boys were seminal in introducing hip-hop to the American mainstream with songs like “Sabotage” and “Intergalactic” becoming instant anthems. Yauch was not only a fiercely entertaining and iconic rapper, he was also a film director and a political activist, creating the Milarepa Fund, a non-profit organization devoted to Tibetan independence.

Below, find the video for one of our favorite tracks, “Intergalactic,” and after the jump watch the classic video for “Sabotage.”

Beastie Boys Video – “Make Some Noise”

Check out the latest Beastie Boys video, inventive as ever, for the single “Make Some Noise” off their upcoming album Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. A few weeks back they released a two-minute teaser for a short film (we suspect there’s more to come), and today MTV premiered this video. It’s full of wild celebrity cameos – look for Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Ted Danson, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Will Arnette, Rainn Wilson and Steve Buscemi (and tell us who else we missed!) Elijah Wood is such a convincing Beastie in this short film, we think someone should get him a Brooklyn-kid role in their next major motion picture.
