It's been two years since Australian indie rocker Ben Lee released his last LP, 2009's The Rebirth of Venus, but Rolling Stone has an exclusive preview  from Lee's forthcoming Deeper Into Dream, due out October 11th. Although upbeat and catchy, "Get Used To It" addresses a much heavier topic: death.  "Once you jump in, once you jump in, I hope you really get used to it," Lee sings. And while his haunting vocals and honest lyrics evoke sadness, you can't help but feel a bit of peace in the resolution. You can download "Get Used To It" for free here. Come on, jump in.

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."
