Jerry Garcia's estate has unveiled its first fine art offering, and luckily for fans, they'll be able to get their hands on a copy of the piece. "The Guys" is an etching based on a quickly drawn portrait of the Grateful Dead by the band's leader. The piece features the band's Nineties lineup of Garcia, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart, Phil Lesh, Vince Welnick and Bob Weir. Garcia's family has also requested additional impressions as gifts for the other bandmembers and their families.

“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.
