The Beastie Boys Sue Monster Energy, Confirm They Cannot Make New Music

The Beastie Boys are suing Monster Energy for using their music without permission. However, the larger issue is that Michael Diamond –that's Mike D. of the rap trio-- confirmed that the group is done making music together, due to the death of Adam Yauch, aka MCA, two years ago from cancer.
While remaining members Mike D. and Adam Horovitz (Ad Rock) have never officially gone on record to say that the band is done and over since once of the members is no longer with us, Mike D.'s court statements would seem to confirm what we already know.
He reportedly said, "We have not been able to tour since MCA, Adam Yauch, died" and "We can’t make new music."
We totally get it. Without MCA, it's not The Beastie Boys that we know and love.
What is/was your fave Beasties song?
