Chris Martin from Coldplay makes a live tribute to Adam Yauch from the Beastie Boys (who died earlier that
day, 5/4/12) playing Fight for your Right (To Party) by the Beastie Boys, Live at The Hollywood Bowl.
Saw this yesterday. It's cool that they're paying their respects to Adam, but holy shit that has to be the gayest cover of any song I've ever heard.
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
yea this is really bad
It would have been more fascinating if they kept the energy of that song rather than mellow it down.
Digging: Lights Out Asia - Hy-Brasil
I didn't think it was possible to pussify this song, but leave it to Coldplay to pull that off.
Digging: Supercell - ZIGAEXPERIENTIA
It's out of respect though. So what if it isn't that great; it isn't like they had a lot of time to prepare.
It's fucking garbage. Fuck Coldplay and fuck you Dark if you like these fags.
Definitely nothing wrong with this.
I hate Coldplay but this was cool
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
its not cool its fucking trash god people why dont you get it???
Colplay suck, but they paid their respects live after one day's preparation, I'm gonna cut them some slack, even if FFYRTP is a shit stain of a song
Wow stfu YouGotLuckey you stupid fucking 12 year old bitch...... Bitch
you're all degenerate scum
just so we're clear
Digging: Ghost Atlas - Gold Soul Coma: Vol. 1
this was meh.
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
what the awkward?
What? Did u guys expect to see Chris Martin rap or something? They're paying tribute the only way they know how.
This was a great tribute
Digging: Logos - Cold Mission
pretty cool, not sure why everyone's shitting their pants about it
btmi's tribute was infinitely better
Digging: RVIVR - The Beauty Between
I dont know why I was expecting them to play the actual version. I was perplexed at the fact they chose this song, I'm not a fan
of their music but when I saw the video I was amazed. They turned a legendary party song into a soothing ballad.
Digging: Edan - Beauty and the Beat
ugh I hate almost everyone commenting.
you're all degenerate scum
just so we're clear 
I don't think you all quite get it...
I'm pretty sure this arrangement was made on the night of his passing.
Plus, it's Coldplay. Of course they're gonna cover a track in a style that suits them and they're used to doing
Yeah this was a nice gesture, I hate the band as much as the next person but c'mon, chris martin doing rap vocals would be 1000 times more awkward.
He didn't need to sing. It's awkward and reeks of self-serving. RHCP played a tasteful vocal-less cover
of Whatcha Want. Kiedis could've rapped a bit of Beastie, but didn't, and for good reason.
This looks/sounds/is Chris Martin using the death as an opportunity to suck himself off in front of an
No, it's a harmless tribute
They paid respects to him, who cares how it sounds? It's the thought that counts.
The arrangement wasn't made on the night. They played it at APW after the B-Boys pulled out. Jay-Z also did No Sleep Till Brooklyn in ultimately incredible fashion.
AWWWWW MOM YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS IT'S THE BEA-STIE-BOYS! Great tribute to a legend
gotta say i'm kinda shocked by the amount of hate this is getting. i thought this was very classy and respectful.
