Adam Yauch, one of the founding members of the Beastie Boys, better known as MCA has passed away at age 47. Yauch was diagnosed with cancer of the salivary gland in 2009 and passed away this morning after a three-year battle with the disease.

While not a metal band it, would be hard to deny the influence the Beastie Boys have had musically, and they did have the good taste to call upon Kerry King when they needed a guitarist for Fight For Your Right. Our thoughts go out to you and your family.
