Despite the news, a representative of the group said, "There will never be Beastie Boys live performances without Adam Yauch."
A year ago this month, Beastie Boys won a $1.7 million lawsuit against Monster Beverage after the company used the band's songs in an ad without permission.
Who knows if we'd be able to party as freely as we can today if the Beastie Boys hadn't come along and told us to fight for it?
Tributes have been pouring in from around the globe following Friday's (May 4) death of Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch, and bandmate Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz has been extremely moved by all of them. In an entry on the Beastie Boys' blog posted Sunday night, Horovitz took time to show his appreciation to his friends and family during his time of mourning and thank everybody for all the respect shown to Yauch following the sad news of his passing after a three-year battle with cancer.
