Off the road since '97, Gwen Stefani and pals will weave their spider web of ska-tinged rock on an eleven-date tour in support of their new Return of Saturn. "We want to reconnect with our audience in more-intimate venues," says bassist Tony Kanal, "where we can feel the energy and smell the sweat." No less fragrant is life on the bus. "It's a lot of sharing," admits Kanal, "especially bodily gases and odors."

“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.
