Kings of Leon's sold-out three-night stand at London's O2 Arena will be the subject of the Followill clan's first DVD, Live at the O2 London, England, due out November 10th. The DVD itself was filmed on June 30th, 2009, with the band rocking out in front of a packed house of 18,000 fans. The 22-song set list hits on all four of the Kings' albums, stretching from "Molly's Chambers" to "Be Somebody" and all those essential tracks in between. For the technologically advanced, Live at the O2 London, England will also be released on Blu-ray on November 24th.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Kings of Leon have also recruited Justin Timberlake, Pharrell Williams, Mark Ronson, Lykki Li and Linkin Park for an upcoming remix album the AMA-nominated Kings have in the works. The former Rolling Stone cover boys have also been sound-checking eight to ten new songs recently. If the band wasn't busy enough, Caleb Followill will also guest-judge on an upcoming episode of Iron Chef: America.

“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.
