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.

Alex Levine of The Gaslight Anthem sat down with The Hatchet for an interview.
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.

If you want to remove U2's album Songs of Innocence from your iTunes collection -- this is how you do it.
Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase. If you later decide you want the album, you will need to get it again. The album is free to everyone until October 13, 2014, and will be available for purchase after that date.

Our interview with Kimbra can be found here, where she discusses her new record, The Golden Echo.
Thatís whatís exciting to me. When something goes from major to minor really quickly, or when it goes from feeling really happy and cathartic to being quite melancholy, itís all in the purpose of serving the message. Itís not just to be trippy. Itís to actually help tell the story and convey an emotion.

Since some of our readers jump at every opportunity to drag Kanye West's name through the mud, they wanted us to post TMZ's story about Kanye forcing a handicapped fan out of his wheelchair. Just like most of TMZ's stories, it was embellished and untrue. You can find a video of what really happened in the replies.

You can read Taylor Swift's Rolling Stone cover story, "The Reinvention of Taylor Swift."
Swift's last album, 2012's Red, straddled the line between country and pop. "But at a certain point," she says, "if you chase two rabbits, you lose them both." So this time, she set out to do full-on "blatant pop music." A casual fan won't notice much difference, but to Swift and her brand, it's a big step. She says she won't be going to country-awards shows or promoting the album on country radio. When she first turned in the record, she says the head of her label, Scott Borchetta, told her, "This is extraordinary Ė it's the best album you've ever done. Can you just give me three country songs?"
