You'll Never Hear Beasty Boys MCA's Music In an Ad

By Fabio Venni, 2007
Late Beastie Boys member MCA (Adam Yauch) instructed in his will that his image, music and any art he created could never be used for advertising, reports DNAinfo. Other deceased musicians' songs and pictures -- like Kurt Cobain's and Joey Ramone's -- have been used commercially in ways they may not have approved of when they were alive.

As Oh No They Didn't puts it: 'Fans of the Beastie Boys will never need to worry about hearing "No Sleep Till Brooklyn" in a DayQuil commercial.'

Yauch's will, filed Tuesday, says the Brooklyn native's entire fortune of $6.4 million should be placed in a trust for his wife, Dechen Yauch, and their 13-year-old daughter. Yauch died in May.
