TLC members Rozonda ''Chilli'' Thomas and Tionne ''T-Boz'' Watkins will perform their first concert together in over six years when the pair take the stage at the annual Justin Timberlake and Friends concert at Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Events Center on October 17th, People reports. TLC were chart-toppers in the '90s with hits like "Waterfalls," "Creep" and "No Scrubs," however the group disbanded after Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died tragically in a car accident in 2002.

T-Boz and Chilli only performed together one last time, at a June 2003 concert for New York radio station Z100. However, the pair will once again reunite at Timberlake's concert, which benefits the Shriners Hospital for Children. Other artists on the concert's bill include Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift and Ciara. Tickets for Justin Timberlake and Friends go on sale this Saturday, August 29th.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
