As the unfortunate news of Adam "MCA" Yauch's passing spread across the internet, countless musicians and celebrities penned tributes to honor the Beastie Boy's legacy. Coldplay's Chris Martin took it one step further by covering one of the group's biggest hits at a Hollywood Bowl concert on Friday.

Yauch died Friday at the age of 47 after a protracted battle with cancer. The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April, but Yauch's deteriorating health preventing him from attending the event.

Martin sang a stripped-down version of "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)" during the concert and mentioned Yauch by name. Watch his performance below.
