You could buy limited edition ecstasy pills to pay tribute to Silk Road, the Deep Web black market seized by the FBI on Oct. 2.

Or you could just jam this priceless Boyz II Men parody—and let it burn.

“The End of Silk Road” may be the ultimate smooth R&B tribute to the Dread Pirate Roberts’ tumbled empire.
