In July 2009 the legendary Beastie Boys co-founding member Adam "MCA" Yauch announced that he had been diagnosed with a "very treatable" tumor in his salivary gland. The band had to cancel the rest of their shows and put the release of their highly anticipated album Hot Sauce Committee on hold while Yauch underwent surgery and received rigorous radiation treatments. We have all remained positive, offering our support and prayers during this difficult time. Yauch is still kicking cancer's ass, and now that he is well enough to join his band-mates we encourage you to snatch up a tribute/countdown badge and add it to your profile from NOW until May 3, 2011 when Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 makes it's debut to the world! Thanks to @preciousveal for the incredible artwork!
