** "Rock Hard", their first Def Jam single, was quickly withdrawn due to an unlicensed sample of "Back In Black" by {{music/ACDC}}. The Beastie Boys wanted to include it on the ''Sounds Of Science'' compilation, which would have been the first time the song was officially available on digital formats... They were denied permission by AC/DC.

* [[AuthorExistenceFailure Artist Existence Failure]]: MCA passed away in 2012 from cancer. Mike D and Ad-Rock have said they'd never do anything under the Beastie Boys name without him, since he was the one who started the band.



** Some positive ExecutiveMeddling occurred over the name of ''Licensed To Ill'' - the label wouldn't let them use the IntentionallyAwkwardTitle ''Don't Be A Faggot''. The band of course now consider this a further bit of OldShame about that album.

** ''License to Ill'' was originally called ''Don't Be A Faggot'' but Columbia Records refused to publish it under that title. The Beastie Boys [[TropesAreTools were quite thankful for this meddling in retrospect.]]

* ThePeteBest: John Berry (guitar) and Kate Schellenbach (drums) left before the band signed with Def Jam and switched from punk to rap.
** Schellenbach was [[ExecutiveMeddling forced out of the band by Rubin]] - She has [[http://nymag.com/arts/popmusic/features/beastie-boys-2011-5/index2.html gone on record]] saying that he acted incredibly sexist to her and refused to allow her either to rap or continue as their drummer, believing that it didn't fit with his personal concept of the group. She remained friends with the rest of the band and later became the drummer for the '90s alt-rock band Luscious Jackson, one of the first signees to the Beasties' Grand Royal label.
