Oasis Reveal "Dig Out Your Soul" Box Set

September 11, 2008 10:45 AM ET

Oasis revealed the details for the "collectors edition box set" version of their new album Dig Out Your Soul. In addition to the album, the box will also include an additional CD with three B-sides and six remixes. There's also a DVD containing 40 minutes of exclusive behind-the-scenes footage featuring the making of the album and "The Shock of the Lightning" video. The box set will also feature heavyweight vinyl containing the album and bonus tracks, a 24-page hardcover booklet and an MP3 download of the album. If that's too much Oasis for you, you can also choose between just buying the CD/DVD, the CD or the vinyl sans the bonus tracks. 20 copies of the limited-edition box set were autographed by Oasis. Those copies will be sent out at random from those ordered through the band's website. Dig Out Your Soul is due out October 7th.

“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.
