Cee-Lo: "F-ck You" Video
Cee-Lo has unleashed the new video for his viral hit "F-ck You" (and not "Forget You."). The retro clip, equal parts Glee and Grease, follows Cee-Lo's journey from a lovelorn nerd to a "lady killer." Check it out above.

Brandon Flowers: "Hard Enough" (Featuring Jenny Lewis)
This collaboration between Nevada-born rockers Brandon Flowers and Jenny Lewis, from Rilo Kiley, hit radio yesterday. It will appear on Flowers' new solo album, Flamingo. [Vulture]

Green Day: "Cigarettes & Valentines" (Live)
At a Green Day concert in Denver this weekend, the band resurrected "Cigarettes & Valentines," the title track to the band's original follow-up to Warning, which was never released because the master tapes were stolen in 2003. Green Day rebounded from the loss by releasing American Idiot in 2004. [Punknews.org]

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
