Happy Mondays Plan Second Comeback Album

May 21, 2008 2:40 PM ET

After fifteen years of dormancy, the Happy Mondays have already started work on their second album since reforming in 2007. Last year, Shaun Ryder and company released their still-unreleased-in-the-U.S. fifth album Uncle Dysfunktional, and leftover tracks from those sessions will make their way onto the next, still-untitled album, which the band hopes to release in early 2009. Since Dysfunktional dates back to 2005 (legal problems hindered its release), the band is eager to start working on new music again. "It's sounding good," Ryder says of the new material.

“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."
