Gym Class Heroes, Good Charlotte Join Denny's "Rockstar" Menu

June 16, 2009 9:28 AM ET

In keeping with the theory that rock & roll keeps you up late and may not be good for your internal organs, Denny's has expanded their "Allnighter Rockstar Menu," which already boasted artery-choking items like Katy Perry's Hot N Cold Cherry Chocolate Cappuccino and the All American S.O.S. (c/of the All-American Rejects, of course). The new additions include Gym Class Heroes' After School Special, which a press release dares to compare to the band's genre-blending sound: "Texas toast topped with hash browns, a fried egg, shredded cheese, bacon and fire-roasted peppers and onions" with bonus hash browns and a side of Ranchero country gravy. There's also Good Charlotte's Band of Burritos, Sum 41's Sumwich and Rascal Flatts' Unstoppable Breakfast. The menu starts at $3.99 and is available from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.

“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.
