Dude I was there, I'm not sure what you saw, but they put his name and picture up the big screens, then proceeded to play 3 consecutive beastie songs. They did before fox's broadcast(I was there for the early fights) it was definitely surprising but also real real cool of them to do.
Snl also paid tribute to him by showing a clip of their live performance of sure shot.
And not that this matters but the bar I was at on Friday had one of those digital juke boxes, I played every beastie song they had. Twice.
