When I was 11 I thought that this music video and Adam Sandler's Billy Madison and Tower Records were the coolest things on the planet. He would be absolutely crushed if I did not acknowledge that to that 11-year-old middle-class white boy, locked hopelessly in an infinite suburb, the Beastie Boys were indeed genuine heroes and men of thundering, unapologetic bravado.

Came up today when we were talking about poor Michael J. Fox.

I remember my father's statement after listening to my cassette of LICENSED TO ILL with me on a highway drive:

And now I realize that I am the same age as my father was when he said that.

Should've been you Violent J.
And a part of my youth went with him.
Ah yeah, this, Brass Monkey, Girls, Sabotage, Check it Out, and Intergalactic were fucking awesome to 13 year old me.
Sucks when cool people die so young.
