Lady Gaga treated her legion of fans to a brand new song on Christmas day. The track, titled "Stuck On Fuckin' You," is an outtake from the pop star's blockbuster album Born This Way, recorded live to tape with producer Fernando Garibay on guitar and Paul "DJ White Shadow" Blair on drum machines. "I wrote it in Minnesota after the Monster Ball on the tour bus," Gaga wrote of the largely improvised tune. "I wrote, sang it, and freestyled the last minute and a half of the song."

The singer initially released the tune as a stream on YouTube, but has since put the song out on SoundCloud with a free download link. Fans of Gaga in rock mode should be pleased: not only is she belting out the lyrics like a hair-metal goddess, but the track has a loose swagger that often comes out in her live gigs but mostly gets lost in the slick professionalism of her studio recordings.

You can stream "Stuck On Fuckin' You" below. As you can probably tell from the title, the lyrics get a bit raunchy, so be warned.

“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.
