Nearly 27 years ago, the Beastie Boys were on top of the charts with Licensed to Ill, their debut album which spent seven weeks in the number one spot before being usurped by U2's The Joshua Tree.
After the loss of band member Adam Yauch, Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) and Mike Diamond (Mike D) slowly reentered the music scene last summer with a few unexpected collaborations.
The Beastie Boys teamed up with Nixon to create four limited edition watches. Proceeds benefit NYC PArks - Adam Yauch Park. More info can be found at beastieboys.com.
The park, which was rechristened Adam Yauch Park, last May is located in Brooklyn and was the setting "for some of Yauch and his family's fondest memories".
In memory of happier times bearing the entire Beastie trio, we present the best Beastie Boys fan art on etsy.
