It's January, when lemons fall off the Hollywood tree like assault weapons. Certainly the sourest comedy in the bunch is Ride Along, a collection of moldy gags that director Tim Story tries to polish. Not with these turds, pal. Ice Cube stars as an Atlanta detective who gives a ride-along to his sister's boo (Kevin Hart, way better than his material) to prove he's a shit-talking security-guard punk who's "about one chromosome short of being a midget." These are the jokes. I suggest you sit this ride out.

    “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."
