Beastie Boys won a lawsuit against Monster Energy Drink last year, being awarded $1.7 million after the company used their music in a promotional video without permission.

Earlier this year, Beastie Boys sought an extra $2.4 million to pay for legal fees accrued during the lawsuit. Now it's reported that they didn't get exactly the amount they wanted, but they did get $668,000.

Their laywers comment: "Monster's tactics significantly increased the costs for Beastie Boys to vindicate their intellectual property rights, such that, absent an award of attorney's fees and costs, plaintiff's success at trial would become a Pyrrhic victory."
