Corey Taylor and his band Slipknot haven't released an album since 2008's All Hope Is Gone, but the singer's been busy with his  Sound City collaboration with Dave Grohl and his other band, Stone Sour. The Iowa rockers are almost ready with the second part of their House of Gold and Bones album series, and on the new track "Gravesend," Stone Sour rage like an inferno. Walls of distortion and pummeling, mid-tempo drums crash with Taylor's growls and barks, but within the chaos comes clarity: "I was only 18 when I finally let go," he sings.

“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.
