Watch Coldplay cover 'Fight for Your Right' in MCA tribute5/5/2012
Among the torrent of remembrances and tributes to the late Adam Yauch, founding member of the groundbreaking hip-hop group the Beastie Boys, was Coldplay's impromptu cover of "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, the day of Yauch's death. The piano-driven, mellow interpretation of the hard-rocking classic included Chris Martin's added lyrics "We're sending all our love to the Beastie Boys." Yauch died in New York City at the age of 47 after a three year battle with cancer. "Fight for Your Right" was the breakout hit from the 1986 album "Licensed to Ill" which was the first ever hip-hop album on to reach No. 1 on Billboard's Top 100 chart.
