Singer Micky Dolenz thinks Breaking Bad‘s use of The Monkees’ B-side “Goin’ Down” was “a very smart call,” but wants you to know also that the song has nothing to do with drugs. “I certainly don’t condone meth — that is nasty stuff that kills a lot of people and ruins a lot of lives,” he told THR. He added also that, “On the other hand, I like that TV show, it’s very well-made. …And no, I didn’t make a penny.” The more you know! [THR]
