Hear Adam Yauch’s Opening Lines from Every Beastie Boys Song

Ever since Adam Yauch (aka “MCA”) of the Beastie Boys passed away almost a week ago, tributes have been in no short supply. But perhaps none are more appropriate than this, a collection of Yauch’s opening lines from every song by the hip-hop pioneers.

The tribute is more than six-minutes long, and gives us a taste of Yauch’s full body of work. It includes his opening lines from ‘Rhymin and Stealin’ from ‘Licensed to Ill’ all the way to ‘The Lisa Lisa/Full Force Routine’ from the group’s most recent album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Part 2.’

It’s a fitting tribute, and makes us instantly miss Yauch’s trademark rasp while simultaneously reminding us of just how much awesome music the Beasties created. Rest in peace, MCA. You’ll be missed.
