Adam "MCA" Yauch's Will Prohibits Beastie Boys Music Being Used In Commercials

Adam "MCA" Yauch's Will Prohibits Beastie Boys Music Being Used In Commercials

The will of Adam "MCA" Yauch, who passed away this past May, was filed this past Tuesday in a Manhattan, N.Y. court. And along with noting that his $6.4 million trust will go to his wife and daughter, the document strictly prohibits the use of Beastie Boys music in advertisements.

Of course, the living members of the Beasties--Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz and Michael "Mike D" Diamond--could choose to sell the recording material. But given their allegiance to their fallen brother, it's doubtful that will occur.
