Towards the tail end of last night’s “Black ‘N Blue Takeover,” a weekly NYC hardcore radio show broadcast on EVR, the Cro-Mags’ John Joseph briefly spoke about his memories of Adam Yauch who was better known to the world at large as MCA of the Beastie Boys. He explains how the trio was essentially a hardcore band that was greatly influenced by the Bad Brains in its formative years before making their jump to hip hop.
