Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch’s will prohibits use of Beastie Boys songs in ads | Music News

If you planned to use “Fight For Your Right (To Party)” to advertise your new party supply store, you might wanna make new plans.

Late Beastie Boys member Adam “MCA” Yauch has a provision in his will strictly prohibiting the use of any of the Beasties’ songs for commercial advertising.

According to DNAinfo, Yauch’s will, which was filed Tuesday in Manhattan surrogate court, extends this usage ban to his image and any other art he created. It also dictates that his $6.4 million dollar fortune be placed in a trust for his daughter Tenzin Losel and his wife Dechen, who was also given the right to sell and manage his artistic property.

Despite the orders in Yauch’s will, however, it is possible that the surviving Beastie Boys will retain the right to sell and license the band’s music.

Yauch died on May 4 due to complications from cancer in his salivary gland. He was 47.
