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.

“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.
