Ripped From the Headlines

- Because it only makes total sense, Bono and Edge have maybe been tapped to write the lyrics and music for the upcoming Spider-Man musical. Here?s your competition, Wayne Coyne.

- The New York Times is reporting that Wang Chung and Twisted Sister are re-recording their hits. Not surprisingly, it?s a business deal. Hopefully this fad will catch on and we?ll be able to hear all-new old stuff by Tiffany. Wait. That already happened.

- Marilyn Manson?s first song from his new record is available for the listening on his MySpace page. It?s called ?If I Was Your Vampire,? and there?s very little doubt anywhere that the song?s addressed to his teenage squeeze, Evan Rachel Wood.

- Speaking of new songs, Radiohead have posted a clip of a song that may or may not make their upcoming album. Hey, fans, time to obsess!

- Finally, and perhaps most excitingly, Floria Sigismondi, director of gorgeous music videos (Bowie, the White Stripes, Marilyn Manson), has been tapped to write and direct Neon Angels, a biopic about the Runaways. Floria and Joan Jett — what a team!
