Perry Farrell thought he'd scored Soundgarden's first-ever reunion gig for Lollapalooza, but the grunge vets will actually take the stage tonight at Seattle's Showbox for a secret show, Billboard reports.

Rihanna's "Rude Boy" continued its strong run on the Hot 100, taking Number One for the fifth straight week, according to Billboard. B.o.B.'s "Nothin' On You" scored second place.

Tool have begun work on their fifth album, TwentyFourBit reports via the band's newsletter to fans, which promises they're working up "intros, progressions, agitatos, con sordinos, crescendos, diatonics, inversions, resolutions, transitions, variations, obbligatos, consonance, and endings."

T.I. has confirmed his new album, titled King Uncaged, will hit stores August 24th. For much more on the Atlanta rapper's return, grab our new issue, on sale now.
