Bad news OutKast fans – NO new album is in the works. Oh well, at least there are 40 tour dates in which to catch them. (via NME)
You know that catchy as hell and cool intro to Mad Men? It could’ve been so much different – Beck was asked to do the theme song to it. He thought that a show about ad execs in the 60s sounded like a terrible idea. So does a song about garbage bag trees, but we know how that turned out. (via NME)
Arctic Monkeys won a couple of BRIT Awards last night, including Best British Group and Best British Album. Damn right they did! Singer Alex Turner also had a weird speech about rock and roll never dying. Check out their performance of R U Mine below. Also, David Bowie got an award for being a cool cat for many decades.
