Beastie Boys Songs In Commercials? Adam Yauch's Will Says No Way

Beastie Boys Songs In Commercials? Adam Yauch's Will Says No Way

The late great Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys had his will filed in a Manhattan Surrogate court on Tuesday. He left his entire fortune ($6.4 million) to his wife and daughter, and gave his wife the right to sell and manage his art. But there's also a clause in his will that prohibits the use of Beastie Boys songs in advertisements. Bandmates Mike D and Ad-Rock might still be able to sell their music to advertisers in the future, but right now, the precedent has been set, and we're willing to bet the other two-thirds of the Beasties might follow Yauch's lead. So you probably won't hear "Sabotage" in a Dr. Pepper commercial anytime soon. [P4K]
