Despite initial reports, recent Oscar-winner Trent Reznor will not be scoring -- or acting in -- a movie called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In a post on the Nine Inch Nails website, Reznor explained that he had never fully committed to the project and he was very confused when the story got out that he was going to be starring in the film as the vampire responsible for killing the fictional Lincoln's mother.

Though this news is surely a huge disappointment to goths everywhere, the bright side is that in the same message, Reznor mentioned that he is still "fully engaged" with the Year Zero mini-series he is developing for HBO and the BBC. The program will be a sci-fi show based on Nine Inch Nails' 2007 concept album of the same name.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
