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.

“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.
