Abort! Abort! It's that time of year when Hollywood releases movies it should never have made in the first place. These are the turd droppings that studios, fearing the worst, refuse to preview for critics. That leaves only the trailer to give you a fix on Collateral Damage, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Los Angeles firefighter whose wife and child are killed in a terrorist bombing. Yes, this is the flick Warner Bros. postponed after 9/11. Vowing revenge, Ah-nuld races to Colombia to track down the villain, who asks, "What's the difference between you and I?" To which Ah-nuld replies, "The difference is, I'm just gonna kill you." And you were worried this film might lack sensitivity and gravitas.

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
