Coldplay Did an Adam Yauch Tribute Last Night

Like a lot of people, Coldplay wanted to honor MCA, who died yesterday at 47. So, during a show last night at the Hollywood Bowl, the band performed a version of "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party)." The acoustic cover (which includes piano accompaniment and no rapping) sounds much more like a regular Coldplay song than the Beastie Boys' 1986 hit, which is probably for the best, because Chris Martin rapping would really undermine what otherwise seems to be a nice thought.
