Don't get too heated about remaking 1967's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner with a race switch. Except for the sparks between Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in their final screen teaming, the movie was a crock, even with the young Sidney Poitier as their daughter's beau. The new Guess is a crock, too, but Bernie Mac is fun as the huff daddy whose daughter (Zoe Saldana) hooks up with a white boy (Ashton Kutcher). And his easy rapport with a dialed-down Kutcher works against the cliched script and the hard-sell direction. Guess what? It's almost bearable.

    “Vans”

    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."
