Beastie Boys' Mike D Reveals That They Aren't Making Any More Music After Adam Yauch's Passing
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.02.2014

The New York Daily News reports that during a lawsuit trial against Monster Energy, Mike "D" Diamond testified that the Beastie Boys no longer make music together after the death of Adam "MCA" Yauch in 2012. Adam"Ad-Rock" Horovitz testified earlier in the week and sat with Diamond before "Mike D" took the stand.

Diamond said: "We have not been able to tour since MCA, Adam Yauch, died. We can't make new music."

It was also revealed during his testimony that the group was offered "a lot of money" to use "Sabotage" in the Arnold Schwarzenegger film of the same name, but they turned it down.

He said: "It felt like too much of an endorsement. We weren't fans of Mr. Schwarzenegger's recent . . . work."

The film ended up underperforming at the box office.

Diamond and Horovitz are suing Monster Energy Drink for $1 million after Monster used their songs without permission in a video called "Ruckus in the Rockies." Diamond said if Monster asked them, they would have said "absolutely no."

He added: "We do not let our music get used in in commercials for commercial products."

Monster admitted to copyright infringement but doesn't think it should pay a million dollars for it.
