Rap And Alt Collide In Psycho-Sexy “Sucker For Pain”. Safeword = Suicide Squad.

Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Logic, Ty Dolla $ign, Dan Reynolds/Imagine Dragons and Sam Harris/X Ambassadors show off their dark side in the new “Sucker For Pain” video. The latest track to be released from the Suicide Squad soundtrack. Chains, cages, straight jackets, the works! …but listen closely to the lyrics, only one of them admits to “tongue-kissing a shark.”

MUAH.

Both the album and the movie will hit August 5th. Check out the video and let me know what you think.

The Drama That Haunts The Original Ghostbusters Theme Song.

With the upcoming Ghostbusters installment and given the amount of vacuous crap we read in a day and the release of the Fall Out Boy/Missy Elliott theme song remake, I’m surprised I haven’t seen any websites reminiscing about the feud behind the original Ghostbusters theme song.

So I’ll do the honors.

Once upon a time, Ray Parker Jr. was given 3 days to come up with a theme song for the movie…then one day he happened to be watching TV, he saw a commercial and the idea just came to him! Click here for a detailed backstory.

The problem with that alibi is the time line. The studios had apparently approached Huey Lewis to do the theme song first and the finished product sounded an awful lot like “I Want A New Drug”.

Check out this mashup.

So Huey sued, they settled out of court for a certain amount along with the stipulation that Huey would never talk about it again…then in ’02 Huey laid it out on VH1’s Behind The Music that he had been ripped off, the label knew it so they paid him 5 million not to talk.

Then Ray Parker sued Huey! Not kidding. For the “emotional and psychological stress due to these false and inflammatory statements” aka, outing him.

At the end of the day, it sounds like the label/studio set Ray up and it all just went sideways.

The End.

What’s your take? Feel free to comment or email, red@slacker.com and let me know what you think of the new song!

Ps – Another shout out to ledgernote.com for such a great synopsis of what went down and for reminding about the Key & Peele sketch. So damn funny. Let’s hope Ray doesn’t sue them too.

“REAL MEN” START MOSH PIT AT DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE SHOW. (Kidding. They’re Losers.)

A couple of drunk guys ruined a Death Cab show in South Carolina. According to the youtube comments, it sounds like they were trying to fight everyone around them. They also tried to start a mosh pit which didn’t go over so well. Maybe it would have worked better during something other than “Soul Meets Body”.

As you can see in the video Ben isn’t having it. He threw his guitar down and walked off. That’s when security grabbed the guys and showed them out.

Sidenote: Do you listen to The Weekly Alternative Countdown?? Remember when I talked about Ben’s inner bad ass? This might further prove my theory and as much as I hate to see a nice guy get upset, I’m diggin’ the angst.

Do you think it’s bad if you start a mosh pit at a show just because a band member’s temper turns you on? …Asking for a friend :/

This begs for a drug PSA…how about something like this:

“Jiminy Glick” is a character Martin Short has resurrected for his show Maya & Marty with Maya Rudolph.

Jiminy is an unprepared, inappropriate, oblivious, sweaty glutton…in other words, he’s brilliant and usually ends up insulting his guest straight to their face, before falling out of his chair. If you dig “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifinakadisdfsdfs, you’ll appreciate Jiminy….And at the very least you’ll appreciate Drake’s ability to keep a straight face.

How much would you love to dance with this man?? Me too. Party perfection.

If you’re willing to go across the pond, you can find him at The James Figg Pub In Thame. Just ask for Nathan Swift, he’s the Assistant Manager.

…and when you do? Tell him that chick who talked about him on Party Hits is jealous of that hose.

Taylor Swift Plays Wedding Singer Post-Break Up. Refrains From Awkward Rendition Of ‘Love Stinks’ ala Sandler.

Taylor’s break up with Calvin Harris didn’t stop her from celebrating the joy of another couple’s everlasting love and the backstory is equally as heart-warming.

According to MTV, the groom is the ‘Swiftie’ in this situation. Max Singer’s sister had reached out to Taylor, telling her how their mom passed away recently, how Max danced with his mom to “Blank Space” in her hospital room and asked if Taylor would come to the wedding.

Not only did Taylor perform…
