Transcending genres and decades, the Beasties’ impact on music and culture cannot be overstated. With the passing of beloved musician, filmmaker and activist Adam Yauch (aka MCA), many have reflected on the band’s history. In this short video, the artists behind the group’s album covers discuss their artwork, each revealing a unique period in their own history as well as American culture at large. The video is part of a larger tribute to MCA and the band’s visual history from Juxtapoz.
