...really hated the drive home from work today. Every station, regardless of format, was playing Beastie Boys. Some were 2-3 deep. ghastly.

and, regardless of liking the music or not, this should make most of us feel old.

I listened to them first in grade school, on cassette. I was hooked ever since. Such a bummer that he died at such a young age.
