Beastie Boys Tribute with Backbone.js Winners!

Back in May, music lost an icon with the tragic passing of Adam "MCA" Yauch of the Beastie Boys, who lost his fight with cancer at the age of 47. Being big fans of their music, all of us here at CloudSpokes knew we needed to honor MCA and the Beastie Boys in some way, so we created this challenge.

The requirement for this challenge was to create a table of Beastie Boys songs with 3 or 4 columns (song name, album, song length, written by, quotable, etc) and 5 - 10 rows where you can drag cells left or right. The end user needed to be able to select a row and display the details of the record. And we wanted all of this done using Backbone.js!

Shout outs to d1b1, eadlam and akkishore, who came up with some pretty awesome submissions and crushed this challenge. Especially d1b1, who went with "No Sleep Till Backbone Brooklyn" on the challenge scoring a perfect 100 with his awesome submission! Make sure to check out the demo videos below, and keep an eye out for our next Backbone.js challenge!
