The Cribs Let You Inside Their Mobile Crib

August 17, 2007 7:50 PM ET

The Cribs, a melodic punk trio of brothers from Yorkshire, England, released their third album Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever last month, and it's quickly become one of our office favorites. When the band came through New York City on tour we hung out with them before their show at the Bowery Ballroom. Check out this video in which the boys chat about the rigors of the road, their influences, and growing up as bandmates and brothers. After you watch the video, click through this snazzy Cribs photo gallery here.

“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.
