Information is coming out about late Beastie Boys founder Adam Yauch’s will. He’s refusing to be a corporate shill even after his death! The will filed in a Manhattan court Tuesday says that his image, music and any art he created cannot be used in commercial advertisements. MCA also left his wife and 13-year-old daughter in charge of his $6.4 million estate and his wife will now manage the rights to all of his creations. Yauch passed away May 4th after a long bout with cancer. In related news, the Beastie Boys are suing Monster Energy for using their music and name in online advertisements earlier this year.

As we patiently wait for Slipknot to get into the studio, Corey Taylor’s other project—Stone Sour—is preparing for a new album and they’ve made a snippet of new music available online. The song “Gone Soverign” will be on the forthcoming album House of Gold and Bones – Part 1. You can listen to the 16 second clip by sharing it on Facebook or Twitter. Get more details at HouseofGoldandBones.com. At the website there are several squares that appear locked hinting at more sneak peaks on the way. The forthcoming attempt is the first of a two-part concept album and will be out sometime in October.
