Beastie Boys were honored as Webby Artist of the Year at the 11th Annual Webby Awards in New York this evening. They were recognized for their forward-thinking approach to the internet and for embracing technology.

Their acceptance speech was supposed to be limited to 5 words. Here's what they said:
"We clearly didn't plan anything for this. Thanks everyone for loving us so much and we love the internet so much, and computers. We get paid for this. Thanks for thinking of us. Can anyone fix my computer? I am the king of lunch."

    Yeah, I was gonna ask if it was one of them delivering it all or a team effort. Definitely sounds like a combo at least.

    "don't remember what Mike D. had to say. He did have the least gray hair though. [klepto note: gray hair is sextremely sexy!]

    The Beasties were extremely courteous and stuck around until the end of the show, hanging outside and taking pictures with fans." :)

    "Right at the end MCA leaned in to apologize to David Bowie. Apparently MCA replied-all with a private response to an email Bowie had mass mailed to friends the week before." :P
