For anyone who’s followed the career arc of the Beastie Boys, this next little news bit will likely not come as much of a surprise: the band will never issue new music under the name “the Beastie Boys” ever again.

The news came up while the two surviving members of the Beastie Boys, Adam Horovitz and Mike D, were testifying in their case against Monster Energy Drink (the group alleges the energy drink company used the Beastie Boys’ music without permission).  According to The AV Club, Mike D stated that the group has not been able to tour since the passing of Adam Yauch, and that the group would not make new music—at least under the name the Beastie Boys.
