The Beastie Boys have sold 21 million closely followed by Eminem's 20 million copies. The Beastie Boys were voted the 77th Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Artists of all time by Rolling Stone. Not only do the Beastie Boys rap, but they also played punk rock in their ealier music days. Adrock guitar and vocals, MCA bass, and Mike D on the drums. Adam Yauch became publicly passionate about the destructive, violent situation in Tibet and created "The Milarepa Fund" in 1994 to help promote awareness and generate support around the world. He organized the first "Tibetan Freedom Concert" in San Francisco in 1996, which he followed with years of a similar series in the United States and worldwide.
