Kate Schellenbach

Kate Schellenbach, who later found fame as a drummer for '90s alt-rock band Luscious Jackson, was an original member of the Beastie Boys. She says she was shooed away from the group thanks to its then producer/mentor Rick Rubin. "He and I did not get along," she later told New York magazine. "He was like a meathead sexist a--hole. He flat-out said, "I don’t like the way women sound rapping."
