The trio had a hit with “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!)” from their first album in 1986 and later won over critics with sampled music, drum beats and biting lyrics on records such as “Paul’s Boutique,” their second release, in 1989. The group traded on its image of beer-drinking punks and enjoyed their greatest success with Adam “Ad-rock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond.

The Beasties were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland last month. Yauch was too sick to attend the ceremony. They were the third hip-hop group to be inducted, joining Run-D.M.C. and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five.” via bloomberg.com
