Reprising all twelve cuts from Maroon 5's 2002 debut, Live: Friday the 13th is mostly a victory lap for these hardworking popsters — complete with copious girly screams from the audience. But if you're aching for a nine-minute, jammy rendition of "Sweetest Goodbye" or loose-limbed takes on hits that were fairly jumpin' in their studio versions — not to mention the accompanying DVD of the same show — you've come to the right piece of merch.

The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
