The Dixie Chicks will make an increasingly rare live appearance next summer, headlining Canada's Craven Country Jamboree. The country trio will replace Lady Antebellum, who have canceled upcoming tour dates around singer Hillary Scott's pregnancy. The Dixie Chicks last hit the road in 2010 for a tour with the Eagles, and they played a show for wildfire relief in Texas in October 2011.

“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."
