The two coolest guys in New York just got elevated to whatever is cooler than being cool (did Outkast ever figure that out?), because Kathleen Hanna revealed a detailed close-up of her husband's guitar strap, which features their faces. Ad-Rock's strap is an homage to NY1's Pat Kiernan and Roger Clark, and looks like this:

Clark—a seasoned drummer and air guitarist—tells us, "I am really honored that an artist and musician like Adam Horovitz, who I have admired for years, would pay tribute to NY1 and Pat and I in such a cool way. Anyone who knows me can tell you how much the music of the Beastie Boys was a part of my life since they first came on the scene. Plus the fact that Adam's wife Kathleen Hanna tweeted about the guitar strap is amazing. She is another one of my all time favorites from Bikini Kill to Le Tigre and now The Julie Ruin. I saw them perform a Joan Jett song together at the Little Kids Rock Benefit last Thursday night at Hammerstein Ballroom and it was amazing."
Kiernan, however, is wondering what's next: "I knew Ad-Rock to be a regular viewer and a fan, but this is a level of loyalty that troubles me. Will Roger feel obligated to use Ad-Rock mittens on the air this winter? Will I feel compelled to design an Ad-Rock elastic band to wrap around my newspapers? This is a slippery slope."
Someone please make Roger Clark Kathleen Hanna/Ad-Rock mittens.
