Brian Fallon, the frontman of New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem, teamed up with his old friend Ian Perkins to form the Horrible Crowes, a new outlet for the singer's introspective yet bombastic music. "Behold the Hurricane," a track from the band's forthcoming debut Elsie, is a richly arranged rocker that approaches the soaring intensity of Bruce Springsteen and the cinematic flair of Greg Dulli's music with the Afghan Whigs and the Twilight Singers. Elsie won't be in shops until September 16th, but you can stream the song 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.
