Such an amazing human being. A true loss to the world, and at 47 he still should have had another 20 or 30. One of favorite lyrics of his " And she said, ‘Dark is not the opposite of light. It's the absence of light.' And I thought to myself, she knows what she's talking about. And for a moment, I knew what it was all about."

The Beastie Boys are one of my favorite bands, and its sad to know they probably won't be active anymore. Such an great collection of music, all 8 albums. But as it is, I listen to them for times almost nonstop.. I'll always have Paul's Boutique and Ill Communication in my cd case in my car. I don't own Check Your Head, To The 5 Boroughs, and The Mix-Up yet.. but from what I could surmise currently these would be my favorites from best to lest best.

Paul's Boutique
Ill Communication
Hello Nasty
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
Check Your Head
Licensed To Ill
The Mix-Up

His death finally spurred me to listen to their albums apart from Paul's Boutique and Licensed to Ill, and I have realized I was missing out on so much. Ill Communication was awesome, and I'll definitely need to listen to the rest of their stuff as well.

3 days later and MCA's passing still has me all fucked up emotionally. Been watching their HOF induction this weekend in celebration of what they've done in the last 25+ years...PWR2MCA

Never knew Fight For Your Right To Party was a parody song. Love them Beasties even more.

Hello Nasty is too high, Liscensed To Ill and To The 5 Boroughs are too low IMO. Hello Nasty has strong singles, but I have a hard time listening to the album front to back

I have since changed my opinion. Finally got all the albums and its all i've been listening to for the past month. From best to least

Paul's Boutique
Ill Communication
Check Your Head
Hello Nasty
To The 5 Boroughs
Licensed To Ill
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two
The Mix-Up

There are some places where I could switch around depending on my mood. But yeah, Beastie Boys are the shit.

I know man, it sucks. Still should have had soo many more years in him. I hold such high respect for the man and the music they've made.

Also, you guys really need to check out The In Sound From Way Out! album from them, it's a compilation of all their instrumentals from their albums before Hello Nasty and it's soooo chill, I love it. I included the songs Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament from Hot Sauce Committee and Song For Junior/Sneakin' Out The Hospital from Hello Nasty and it makes an awesome instrumental CD, much much better then The Mix-Up imo.

Finally made my Best Of Beastie Boys cd mix. I'm a little ashamed to admit that I don't have a single song from Licensed To Ill on here (I had to cut The New Style for time) but imo the rest of their discography is so much richer.

1. Super Disco Breakin'
2. Shake Your Rump
3. Nonstop Disco Powerpack
4. Pass The Mic
5. High Plains Drifter
6. Intergalactic
7. Make Some Noise
8. Flute Loop
9. Finger Lickin' Good
10. Eugene's Lament
11. Flowin' Prose
12. The Larry Routine
13. Body Movin'
14. Hey Ladies
15. Jimmy James (Original Version)
16. Song For Junior
17. Sneakin' Out The Hospital
18. Three MC's And One DJ (Live Video Version)
19. The Lisa Lisa / Full Force Routine
20. B-Boy Bouillabaisse
21. Shambala
22. Bodhisattva Vow
23. Namaste
