Tributes to Adam “MCA” Yauch have been plentiful since news broke of his death last Friday, but this mashup dedication by YouTuber Ahmnim is rather unique as it journeys through the Beastie Boys’ entire catalog and chronologically splices together MCA’s opening lines from (almost) every Beastie Boys song, complete with album and track listing. I promise it won’t challenge your sensibilities, like, say, Train’s take on “Fight for Your Right.”
Not only does the whole thing make for a touching tribute, but also a heartfelt stroll through the entire Beastie Boys anthology. Many hours well spent, semi-anonymous YouTube editor. Thank you for your efforts.
