Beastie Boys MC Adam Yauch, a.k.a. MCA, has died. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2009 and had been undergoing treatment.

In addition to his work in the seminal, influential, absurdly successful, and undeniably excellent hip-hop group, he also ran his own film production company and co-founded a fund to support Tibetan independence. The Beastie Boys were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month.

Oh god, is it too soon for "disco is dead" jokes? We on the internet don't have a filter for that kind of thing. Regardless, the 5-time Grammy winner and Queen of Disco, Donna Summer, passed away this morning at the age of 63 following a battle with cancer. She was known for such hits as "Last Dance", "Hot Stuff", "She Works Hard for the Money," and "I Feel Love."

This posting of Bob Dylan's death was a HOAX
The legendary singer-songwriter was found dead yesterday outside his hotel room in Oaxaca, Mexico. He was 71.
So Is Bob Dylan Dead? NO, this was a hoax. He was alive when this was made, and he has won a Noble prize for literature since then, so nope, not dead.

Eduard Khil, or "Mr. Trololo" as he was known to millions on the internet, died today of complications following a stroke. He was 77.

Khil enjoyed popularity as a singer in Soviet Russia during the '60s and '70s before stepping down from the public stage in the early '90s. Then, in 2010, Khil achieved the dubious honor of Internet fame after a video of a 1976 televised performance went viral.

Khin replaced the lyrics of the song, titled "I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home," with alternating "lololols" and "lalalalas" because he was afraid the Soviet government would censor the original lyrics. Which proves that in Soviet Russia, memes make you.
