You couldn't step foot in a bar, store, or baseball stadium in New York this weekend without hearing the Beastie Boys. And as members of Generation Yauch continued to reel from the news that Adam "MCA" Yauch had succumbed to cancer Friday morning, the music world stepped up its cover game, adding heartfelt renditions of the group's tracks to live sets all over the world. The outpouring of support didn't go unnoticed by the Beasties, whose Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz posted a quick note to the trio's Tumblr. "as you can imagine, shit is just fkd up right now. but i wanna say thank you to all our friends and family (which are kinda one in the same) for all the love and support," he wrote. "i’m glad to know that all the love that Yauch has put out into the world is coming right back at him."
