Adam Yauch, aka MCA, one third of the Beastie Boys, passed away today at the age of 47. Yauch had been battling cancer since 2009. We'll be celebrating the life of Yauch by spending the day immerced in the Beastie Boys' indelible catalog (I've got Hello Nasty spinning right now). Our thoughts go out to Yauch's family and friends.

OK, in honor of Yauch, tell me about your favorite Beastie Boys memory. Did you get to see them at the Croc? See one of their two sets at Sasquatch! 2007? Personally, I'll never forget their irreverent "press conference" at Saquatch! in 2007. They came in and played the first few minutes as if they were a basketball team sitting down with the press after a game. It was pretty hilarious. You can check out excerpts from the press conference.
