Attention Weezer: Break up and you'll get $10 million: If you want to change the course of popular music, not to mention the lives of four adult men, it'll cost you—$12, to be exact. Fed up with the perceived "piles of crap" Weezer have been doling out lately, one fan has started an online campaign to pay the band $10 million to call it quits. We could make an "accident" occur for half that amount. [LINK]
Gorillaz debut brand new song, "Doncamatic (All Played Out)": It might not be summer anymore, but you can still take a trip to Plastic Beach (or at least a nearby atoll) with this new ditty from Gorillaz. But if you think dropping a new song is all they had to offer, you don't know Damon Albarn; stay tuned to CBS.com Thursday evening for a post-Letterman live concert broadcast. It's like it's high tide forever with these guys. [LINK]
Check out Karen O's new Jackass 3D song: As it turns out, you do need a soundtrack to a movie featuring grown men pummeling each other's genitals with pool cues and walking around naked. The best kind of music for that appears to be the smooth-as-ice wailing of Karen O. Already featured on the Jackass 2 soundtrack, O's Jackass 3D song, "If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough," is a neat cover of Roger Alan Wade's hard-drinking song about a man down on his luck. This time, though, the guy's down because he got hit with a bag of flour by his friend in a duck costume. [LINK]
Bruce Springsteen rumored to appear on Glee: It was bad enough when those Gleeks got their perfectly-pitched hands all over Madonna, Lady Gaga, and Britney Spears. Now they want to take The Boss, Bruce Springsteen of all people, and give his working-class songs of the everyman the bright, shiny, (off-)Broadway treatment. Actually, it might not be that bad, but if we see one recreation of the cover of "Born In The U.S.A.," we are gonna go Gleek stomping. [LINK]
Download Bernard Sumner & Hot Chip's Converse song now: Kid Cudi, Best Coast, and Rastam Batmanglij's Converse song may have been catchy, but for their track for the shoe giant, Bernard Sumner and members of Hot Chip are breaking out some electro goodness and teaching us about love. Do you have that in an 11? [LINK]
Watch: Brandon Flowers "Only The Young": For his debut solo album, Brandon Flowers brings a bit of old-school crooner charisma to the table. And while Frank Sinatra already went ahead and presented the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the masses, Flowers just straight up dropped a whole Vegas show on us in the form of Le Reve. Expect plenty of waterworks, and we don't mean from the sad song The Killers frontman belts out. [LINK]
