I'll never forget seeing them live the week Licensed To Ill hit number one. It was such a revelation to see hip-hop fans, alternative fans, and metal fans at the same concert. That just didn't HAPPEN then.
By way of tribute, the Mets used all Beastie Boys songs as entrance music for their hitters tonight. Nice tribute to a New York legend.
I guess I agree in a way. It really reminds me of an MP3 jukebox like MusicMatch. The problem is that I have no interest in that. I have MusicMatch, I have Windows Media Player, I have Winamp, I used to have iTunes. I hardly need another one.
