Casey Abrams, the bearded singer who was saved from elimination earlier this season by the judges, was voted off of American Idol last night. Abrams, who was best known for occasionally performing with an upright bass, covering Nirvana and kissing Idol judge Jennifer Lopez, was a polarizing figure among the show's fans despite his jolly, self-deprecating personality.

“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."
