MCA, real name Adam Yauch, has passed away. The 47 year old was a member of the Beastie Boys, who were still going strong after releasing their album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two just last year. Yauch had been diagnosed with cancer in 2009, but had undergone treatments since then. It is not yet known whether his death is cancer related, but no matter what everyone should continue to fight for their right to party. MCA would approve.
