Beastie Boy MCA (Adam Yauch) went to high school at Edward R. Murrow High School in the Midwood neighborhood in Brooklyn. While in high school, Yauch taught himself to play bass and became involved in the punk scene of New York.

MCA formed a hardcore punk band named the Beastie Boys with John Berry (guitar), Kate Schellenbach (later with Luscious Jackson), and Mike D. They played their first show on MCA's 17th birthday- August 5, 1981.
