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 will admit to being an iTunes noob when it comes to this sort of thing, but can you buy music online from anywhere and put it into iTunes? There are a few artists I'd like to get that aren't available in iTunes (AC/DC, for instance)
