News Ticker: Trent Reznor, Lady Gaga, Liam Gallagher, Mark Ronson

March 25, 2010 8:50 AM ET


  • Trent Reznor returned to his once-abandoned Twitter to post a photo from the studio with the caption "Last day of the session!" No word on when the new music will be released, and the 33 1/3 book about the making of Pretty Hate Machine has been delayed until likely early fall, Clevescene reports.



  • Lady Gaga has made history, becoming the first artist to score one billion video views. Mashable reports Twilight and Soulja Boy are close behind according to Visible Measures' figures.



  • Liam Gallagher's clothing line Pretty Green is coming to America. The collection, which includes limited-edition T-shirts, jeans and footwear, will be available to U.S. residents starting today online.



  • Mark Ronson is offering up his producing chops for charity. He'll produce a track for the highest bidder at the Artists for Peace and Justice auction, which benefits Paul Haggis' group that fights for peace and social justice around the globe. UPDATE! Jamison Ernest won the auction, and Ronson is set to produce a track for his band Yellow Fever.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
