Green served as a coach on the first three seasons of the NBC talent competition before taking a break this year to work on a solo LP and a project with his rap group, Goodie Mob. Fellow coach Christina Aguilera is also taking a break from the show this season. Usher and Shakira are filling in for them.

After several weeks of battle rounds gauging the contestants' relative strengths, The Voice this week began knockout rounds as the four coaches reduce their teams in preparation for the competition to go live next month.

“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.
