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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
