I Didn’t Ask For This: Watch The Flaming Lips And Miley Cyrus Cover The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life”

Last night on Conan, The Flaming Lips joined Miley Cyrus for a performance of The Beatles’ “A Day In The Life.” I won’t pretend that this is a shocking performance – take a look at that headline again and ask yourself exactly what you would expect from this kind of collaboration.

Soulja Boy just dropped a new song on Soundcloud. The track is called “Don Corleone.” One of the many new tracks we’ve heard from Soulja Boy in the past few years, “Don Corleone” is a pretty standard banger.

Fall Out Boy and Lupe Fiasco Unveil New Chicago Bulls Theme Song

Recently, Chicago artists Fall Out Boy and Lupe Fiasco teamed up to release a revamped version of the Chicago Bulls’ official theme song, “Only The Bulls,” and the results are…strange. The original song was pretty cheesy and a bit dated, so it makes sense that the organization would bring on some well-known local artists to […]
