Beastie Thieves Steal Band's Can

Somebody in England has one hell of a Beastie Boys souvenir.

A giant sardine can which was used to unveil the Beastie Boys' latest release in London got its own "Hello Nasty" when thieves took off with the 3D billboard centerpiece last week.

England's "Dot Music" reports that the 10-ft long can, which set back their U.K. label, Parlophone, over $30,000, contains life-sized replicas of the group members. It's been on display at various sites around the U.K. and had only been put up in its new location next to London's Waterloo Station the previous day.

A label spokesperson told "Dot" that they were hoping that the theft was just a student prank and that the giant tin will soon be returned to its rightful place.

Meanwhile, anybody knowing the whereabouts of the tin are being asked to call Parlophone.
