Beastie Boys Exhibit Opens at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

David Redfern/RedfernsThe Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has opened a new exhibit focused on the Beastie Boys. The showcase includes items donated to the museum when the band was inducted into the Rock Hall in 2012, less than a month before founding member Adam "MCA" Yauch passed away.

"Since we had such a rich, deep collection of stuff from the Beasties when they were inducted, we thought we'd put it out," Rock Hall curator Meredith Rutledge-Borger tells "We also wanted to represent more stuff from some of our recent inductees."

Among the items on display in the exhibit, which is located on the third floor of the Cleveland museum, are handwritten lyrics to the song "Brass Monkey," outfits from the "Intergalactic" video, action figures and Mike D's Volkswagen medallion.

This year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees include Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Steve MillerN.W.A and Chicago. The Black Keys and Metallica's Lars Ulrich will be "special guests" and the ceremony, which will be held April 8 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
