The Beastie Boys’ Ad-Rock Turns 47 Today And You Are Old

The Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock Turns 47 Today And You Are Old

Ad-Rock aka Adam Horovitz aka the sneeriest snottiest Beastie Boy is 47 years old today and as a grown-up person looks dapper as all get out. We’re posting this even though just thinking about the Beasties makes us sad all over again that we lost MCA.

In other news, you also too are fucking old probably because “Fight For Your Right” is 27 years old.

And if you haven’t watched that 30-minute tribute/revisit of “Fight For Your Right” they did a couple years ago for the 25th anniversary, and if you haven’t taken a quality 30 minutes out of your day to watch this previously, you really should. There’s a dance-off and both Will Ferrell and Elijah Wood play Ad-rock. Oh, just go watch it and that sentence will make more sense.

    I felt old when Paul’s Boutique was 20 years old. This does not make me feel any better. And good music stopped happening after 1992. And get offa my lawn!
