I read the news this morning that Adam “MCA” Yauch of the Beastie Boys passed away after battling cancer since 2009. He was 47.

In tribute, I present one of the greatest concert films of all time: Awesome; I F**king Shot That! The film was directed by Yauch (under the name Nathaniel Hornblower) back in 2004 and shot by more than 50 Beastie Boys fans who were provided handycams. It is the pinnacle of User-Generated-Content, filmed before “UGC” became an industry buzzword.

RIP Adam Yauch (1964-2012), a true artist and pioneer.
