Click to listen to The Horrible Crowes' album 'Elsie'

Brian Fallon, the frontman for New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem, teamed up with his old friend Ian Perkins to form the Horrible Crowes, an outlet for the singer's more introspective material. Though the songs on Elsie, the band's debut, are slower and more somber than most Gaslight Anthem tunes, Fallon's gift for grand, cinematic music is still in evidence. Elsie will hit stores on September 6th, but you can stream the album in full today.

“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.
