Top 100 2015

The Beastie Boys
16" x 12", oil on canvas, 2015
Yes, the Beastie Boys, they are starting off a brand new top 100 edition. If the first two months are any indication to what the music year 2015 has coming, then it's a shift away from female singers' dominance towards a more equal distribution. After a decade of painting Kathleen Hanna, I now, for the first time, portrayed her husband Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz. He's situated in the middle flanked by Michael "Mike-D" Diamond and Adam "MCA" Yauch. The CD Ill Communication, bought for 20 cents at a thrift store, has provided many hours of rocking out while driving. Three songs are already guaranteed a spot in the new list, of which the biggest hit from the album, Sabotage, is one.
