13th - The Beastie Boys fail to win the Grammy award for best rap performance by a duo or a group. The 2005 award goes to the Black Eyed Peas. They also fail to win the award for best rap album for their 2004 release "To the 5 Boroughs." Instead, the award for best rap album goes to Kayne West for "The College Dropout."


26th - Fans visiting the beastieboys.com messageboard find themselves being redirected to oscilloscope.net, after they discover that Adam Yauch listed the url in his online profile. By the droves people begin to check out the production company's website. Before long, the name Oscilloscope would be synonomous with the "Awesome I Fucking Shot That" movie.


30th - Having had a great deal of success with previous remixing competitions, the Beastie Boys promote the production of more fan made remixes with the advent of a new section on beastieboys.com. For the first time, fans have easy access to previously unavailble accapella tracks. Within seconds a sub-community of Beastie Boys remixers unite and go on to develop their own websites which showcase their new renditions.


Catching casual Beastie Boys fans off guard, and prompting statements like "what the heck is this?" the greatest hits collection entitled "Solid Gold Hits" is released on November 8th 2005.

The next week on November 15th 2005, a little more Beastie buzz is generated when British female rapper Lady Sovereign releases her critcally acclaimed "Vertically Challenged" album. Why would Beastie Boys fans get excited about this release? Answer: Because Adam Horovitz remixed the song "A Little Bit Of Shhh."


Beastie Boys fans and film makers around the world applaud the December 1st annoucement that the Beastie Boys concert film "Awesome I Fucking Shot That" was accepted into the 2006 Sundance Film Festival.

On December 5th, 2005 Beck releases his follow up to "Guero", which is aptly named "Guerolito." This album features the Adam Horovitz Black Tambourine remix of the song "Shake Shake Your Tambourine."
