Robin Thicke admits he didn't really write "Blurred Lines."
Robin Thicke admitted in court that he didnít really help write the 2013 smash "Blurred Lines" -- in part because he was high on the painkiller Vicodin when the song was being written.

mewithoutYou have been forced to postpone the pre-order for Catch For Us The Foxes due to a lack of communication from Universal Music Group, who owns the masters to mwY's records. The full message from the band is in the replies.
But Tooth & Nail no longer owns the masters to our records. For whatever reason they were transferred to Universal Music Group. Once UMG had these masters in their possession they squelched all licenses. Gilead and Burnt Toast were no longer allowed to press vinyls of our records. Thatís because UMG is a big label with big resources. Vinyl is no longer the niche product it once was and they donít need smaller labels to handle manufacturing for them, making a...

Apparently Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon wasn't too pleased that The War on Drugs were playing at the same time as him during Ottawa Folk Fest.
Kozelek attempted to launch into the album's confessional "Dogs" before noise from the main stage drew the singer into a couple of false starts, prompting him to address the crowd with, "Who the fuck is that?" When audience members jovially informed him that it was Philadelphia band the War on Drugs, Kozelek replied by saying, "I hate that beer commercial lead-guitar shit" before exclaiming, "This next song is called, 'The War on Drugs Can Suck My Fucking Dick.'"

Don't try to force me into some fake apology like the last time I was on the show with you. What I want you to do, Matt, what I want you to do is I want you to run the video that everyone is talking about where I so-called screamed at somebody. I want you to run that, since this is such big media press news and obvious shit where you try to demonize...

No, weíre trying to change it up and go with more of a plan as a unit, as opposed to a plan as individuals. Weíre trying to sit down and take the pre-production and the writing more into consideration instead of the studio to come and go ďShit, we have to write 15 songsĒ. Weíre going in with the intent of having 10-15 songs, and then trimming it down to record 2 or 3.

Fall Out Boy's "Centuries" is officially the song of ESPN's college football playoff coverage. Now, the ESPN page lists this song as the "title track" from the band's upcoming album -- which would mean the new album would be titled Centuries, right? I haven't heard anything about this nugget of information besides this post on ESPN.
ESPN's coverage of the inaugural four-team playoff will showcase the upcoming single "Centuries" from the critically acclaimed, multiplatinum-selling band, the network announced today. The song, which is the title track from the band's forthcoming album, will be featured during playoff game and studio telecasts, and in on-air promotions throughout the season.

Minecraft has been sold to Microsoft for 2.5 billion dollars. Markus "Notch" Persson's letter announcing he is leaving the company is one of the best explanations for why I've ever read.
Iíve become a symbol. I donít want to be a symbol, responsible for something huge that I donít understand, that I donít want to work on, that keeps coming back to me. Iím not an entrepreneur. Iím not a CEO. Iím a nerdy computer programmer who likes to have opinions on Twitter.

Thereís something about that song. Itís like everything just kind of stops and that song matters. It makes everything OK. Thereís like a 30-second clip of that song toward the end that I think we, as a band, caught magic when we wrote it and recorded it and when we play it that weíve never done with any other song. Itís like the stars align and we become completely in synch with each other.
