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

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. 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.
