Kid flicks are the only thing selling for Eddie Murphy, and he's sequeled out on Dr. Dolittle and The Nutty Professor. So here's a Mr. Mom riff with Murphy and Jeff Garlin as out-of-work dads who find their hearts running a day-care center for brats. Murphy looks comatose delivering the played-out poopy jokes. If you're older than five, you have to miss the raw comic who once used his wit like a scalpel.

    “Santa Monica”

    Everclear | 1996

    After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
