On the Bus With Tegan and Sara: A Tour of the Pair's Rolling Home

May 15, 2008 12:13 PM ET

Tegan and Sara had already begun packing up the bus they've been calling home while touring behind The Con, when Rolling Stone arrived for a tour Monday night, but Tegan Quin assured us it would have looked the same fully stocked. "Other bands come on our bus and are like, this is not a bus," she laughs, pointing out the labeled drawers for everything from "fruit" to "shoes," and the no-shoe rule on the tidy vehicle. Just hours before the twins' final gig on their current trek (after a brief break they'll appear at Bonnaroo and on Cyndi Lauper's True Colors tour) Tegan showed us everything from fan-made pinatas to the band's current obsession, a This American Life DVD. Click here for the full tour and live shots from the group's show at New York's Terminal 5.

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."
