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.
Nothing like the collapse of the entire U.S. economy to bring about the inspiration for a themed-show dedicated to the ever-elusive dollar. And as I post this, the Asian markets are plummeting as well. Amazing.
