Odd Future mastermind Tyler, the Creator has paid a Los Angeles club $8,000 to cover the damage he left in the wake of an Odd Future gig in December. The rapper allegedly trashed the Roxy's sound equipment, including a soundboard, in a fit of rage. Tyler was arrested outside the venue, and fans of the rap collective took to the streets to protest his arrest.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles District Attorney's office will not file charges over the incident if the rapper complies with their requests in an upcoming meeting.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
