Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys lost his battle with cancer on Friday. The music world will never be the same.

Whether you like the Beastie Boys or not, they had a huge impact on music. They helped shape an entire generation. I remember the first time that I heard the Beasties sing Fight For Your Right. I was just a kid. Every time I hear that song, I am taken back to a time when I didn't even know what a "porno mag" was. A time when I just had to be home from playing with the neighborhood kids by the time the street lamps came on.

I know that I am not the only one that the music of The Beastie Boys strikes a nostalgic chord for. While you think of your nostalgic moment, take a look at Coldplay's tribute to Adam Yauch and the Beastie Boys from the Hollywood Bowl, May 4th, 2012.
