In a recent interview with MusicRadar.com, Stephen Stills of Crosby, Stills and Nash maintains that despite the band's upcoming live CD/DVD release, CSN 2012, the group won't be making a new studio album. "Well, there's the DVD, right, a live set. The thing's done, it's ready to go. But an album? We won't make another album, we won't finish one," he told the website.

The band had previously planned a covers album with producer Rick Rubin before scrapping the project in January. On top of Crosby, Stills and Nash favorites and classics, CSN 2012 features new music from the group. It is set for a July 17th release.

“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.
