I Am Gemini, the seventh album by Omaha, Nebraska rockers Cursive, is a song cycle that tells the story of Cassius and Pollock, twin brothers who had been separated at birth. Over the course of 13 dense, dynamic post-punk tunes, the group question whether one twin is good and the other is evil, or if they really are actually two halves of a whole. The record will hit stores on February 21st, but you can preview the album in its entirety now.

“Vans”

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."
