My Beastie Boys memories

I actually tried BRASS MONKEY because of the BEASTIE BOYS.
A couple of fellow collegiate hooligans and I were easily influenced, I guess, and while blaring Beastie Boys' music throughout several unsuspecting neighborhoods around campus, we swilled the pre-mixed concoction of alcohol and orange juice.
My connection to the Beastie Boys stretches back to 1985, when I purchased the 12-inch single of "SHE'S ON IT," the trio's debut hip-hop single.
I thought about that song, the drink, and the years of enjoying the Beastie Boys after learning of yesterday's death of founding member ADAM "MCA" YAUCH.
