Info About the Beastie Buys Store

            Beastie Boys are an American hip hop band formed in 1981 in New York City.  The band has primarily consisted of Michael ‘Mike D’ Diamond, Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz and Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch. Beastie Boys are one of the longest lasting hip hop groups worldwide and have had over seven platinum albums from 1986 – 2004. The band’s impact and influence on the music scene is well documented through their induction into the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. In 2012, Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch died of cancer at the age of 47, which shook the musical community and later resulted in a children’s playground being named after him.

            Beastie Boys t-shirts feature the same uniqueness that their music does. Often Beastie Boys t-shirts feature images of the band in unique and hilarious situations, which is reminiscent of the distinctive style of the band. Of note is the Beastie Boys t-shirt, Bee, which pictures the band dressed in strange costumes. This shirt has since become a fan favorite and is the most demanded of the Beastie Boys shirts. While this shirt has become the most popular the Beastie Boys t-shirt, Solid Gold Hits, has also become quite popular. Designed after the album, Solid Gold Hits, it features the album artwork for this best of CD.

            The Beastie Boys, large and influential as they are, have also been involved in a sampling lawsuit known as Newton v Diamond. In that case, the Beastie Boys were deemed not liable for sampling ‘Choir’ by James Newton in their song, ‘Pass the Mic.’ This has in no way curtailed their popularity and influence, as the band continues to be cited as an influence for up and coming musical acts. That’s why fans crave a good Beastie Boys t-shirt, and why the Beastie Boys store is ready to deliver!
