Rising Los Angeles rockers Nico Vega are gearing up for a busy 2013. Not only will they be criss-crossing North America this spring alongside Imagine Dragons (with a few solo dates sprinkled in, too), they have a new EP, Fury Oh Fury, due February 5th. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to the six-track collection, which finds the quartet unleashing grungy, infectious riffs on the title track and "Beast." Cuts like "We Are the Art" and "Lightning" find Nico Vega flourishing under a lighter, New Wave-inspired sound that reveals honed pop chops.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
