Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has signed on with CBS to star in a new sitcom, which he will also co-produce. The show, which has the working title Douchebag, will be about an aging rock star attempting to balance his life as a celebrity with the pressures of raising his family. At this point, the program is still being developed, but it could appear as part of the network's fall lineup.

“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.
