The Popdust Files: adam yauch, beastie boys, rip, supercuts, tributes, videos, viral videos

This is how we grieve today, crossed with the way we Internet today: with viral videos, mashups and isolated tracks and sudden remixes, as if once we’ve got through all the remembrances and obituaries and speeches, the next step is to find a new way to hear things. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing (that a cappella Whitney Houston stem from “How Do I Know” was both breathtaking and revealing). It’s just a thing, is all.

In that spirit, here’s a supercut of MCA’s opening lines from every Beastie Boys track, with annotations and in chronological order. It’s as good a tribute as these things tend to go. Watch below.
