RIP Adam Yauch, aka MCA

As you have probably heard, Adam Yauch, aka MCA of the Beastie Boys just passed away from cancer at the age of 47.  As soon as the news broke my facebook feed blew up with posts about his passing, favorite Beastie Boys lines, youtube clips of favorite videos, etc.  While I have already put up two such posts, I figured I’d link to the video from my favorite Beastie Boys song: “Sabotage.”  Besides the song, which is great, and the amazing costumes and fake mustaches, I will never forget it because in high school debate we had a prepared disad (word up to all my cross ex readers out there) that was called Sabotage, and had the lyrics to the song written in the margins.  It goes without saying that this disad was pretty kick ass, and I never failed to put it into use when it seemed appropriate. Unfortunately I could not find a version that didn’t have the f word edited out or a terrible Justin Bieber ad at the beginning – because people looking for “Sabotage” are just gonna go buy a Biebs CD. Oh well. The song and video is still killer.
