Happy birthday to my favorite Beastie Boy, Adam "MCA" Yauch. From snot-nosed NYC punk to immature road animal to a citizen of the world and ambassador for peace & justice. Proof that people can grow and learn and contribute after a reckless past.
Anybody who shits on the Beastie Boys usually has another agenda that has nothing to do with music. Their late '80s-mid '90s period produced some of the funkiest and coolest music of any pop groups of the era.
