Beastie Boys

The Beastie Boys are a rap/punk rock group consisting of 3 members, MCA, Mike D, and Ad Rock. They have been extremely influencial in both the rap/hip hop genre as well as in rock music. They are one of the original rap groups, and definitely one of the first all white rap groups to make it big back when rap was an up and coming genre of music. Just 3 guys from New York were able to have such a huge influence in a huge part of music.
