Coldplay Is Killing the Beastie Boys! [VIDEO]

I understand that everybody remembers in their own way. And there were a ton of tributes to the Beastie Boys and MCA after his untimely death Friday. But not this way.

I didn’t know Adam Yauch personally so I can’t really say what he would prefer, but I’m pretty damn sure it isn’t this. Coldplay did a douched up, mellowed down version of “Fight For Your Right (To Party)” and they absolutely ruined it. If you want to pay tribute a musical mastermind like the Beastie Boys, keep the kick-ass rockin’ vibe in the song and don’t sadden it up because that’s all you know how to do! Hopefully they haven’t ruined this song for eternity.

And here’s the original to scrub your ears of that infernal disaster.

Chris Martin recently revealed that he suffers from Tinnitus. Maybe that’s the reason their music can be so sucky, or maybe it’s what will save us all because they stop making music when he can’t hear anymore.
