What’s The Best Who Song?

You can hear the high-vis tunes on the weekly CSI franchises, and marketing campaigns have used “I’m Free” and “Happy Jack” of late. But for the most part the Who‘s music isn’t around all that much – frustrating for fans who know there are lots of other tracks to blast at top volume. Many of them are heard or discussed in Amazing Journey, a portrait of the band and VH1′s latest Rock Doc (watch it this Saturday night). Of course there are lots explosive songs by the band that don’t get spun enough. Write back and call us liars if you’ve given “I Can’t Reach You” some love lately.

We made a list of hidden gems that you should check out. But what’s more important is getting a taste of the Roc Doc and submitting to the power of this video list.

Above is a nice clip regarding the quandary the guys had over choosing a band name. Make the jump if you want to find out why they were banned from Holiday Inns for life! And do make sure to tell us your fave Who song.

Madonna Was Desperate for Tupac’s Baby

madonna-1030.jpgA story this morning tempted us with something that was sadly too good to be true. Madonna, who apparently dated doe-eyed Tupac Shakur a year before he was murdered, wanted to have the rapper’s baby! Madge’s pal reveals, “She was going out with him … but homegirls were saying to him, ‘I can’t believe you’re going out with a white girl.’”

Tupac apparently dumped her and then you know – Madonna got knocked up by her trainer, married Guy Richie, had another kid, got into Kabbalah, wrote some books, made some track suits, sang a little, and is still insanely rich. But man – can you imagine the spawn that could have been? His eyes, her…arm muscles. Their combined musical talent and passion for living life on the edge. Their kid would have kicked Maddox’s ass and dated Suri before she could walk. Damn, that would have been one bad-ass baby. [Image: Getty]

Lindsay Lohan’s a Party Pooper

lindsay-lohan-1030.jpgLindsay has backed out (again) of hosting a New Year’s Eve Party at Pure nightclub in Las Vegas, which can only mean one thing: this girl is serious about rehab, which is making her seriously boring. Lindsay canceled her appearance as part of her desire to “focus on her work and sobriety,” and we totally respect her new, dry lifestyle. it’s just that we had kind of hoped she’d find a few ways to be sober and insane. She doesn’t have to let go of the crazy now that she’s clean! Here is some tried and true sober stuff Linds could do to eff sh*t up and get the blogs buzzing again:

  • Random food fights
  • Getting juiced up on Red Bulls and talking way too much
  • Rollerblading in places where people aren’t allowed to Rollerblade
  • Wearing a jester hat out in public
  • Panty raids (or boxer short raids! Crazy!)
  • Get a bunny as a pet and carry it around like a tiny dog

Please?

Pete Wentz Broken-Hearted and -Ankled

pete_wentz.pngPete Wentz put the “fall” in Fall Out Boy when he took the stage at last weekend’s Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans — the on-stage live wire broke his leg while performing. Posting shots to the heartbreakingly emo social networking site Friends or Enemies, Wentz described the incident, and the uh, fallout: “ended up breaking the bone that connects my shin to my foot. no shows will be cancelled. i am currently trying to get a “rocker” boot so i can have a walking cast. currently my foot is the size of a small car. if you see me at a show come sign my cast.” The laid-up rocker posted several shots, captioning one photo, “I guess karma owed me.”

Check out the shot of Pete’s car-sized ankle after the jump.

Britney Pisses Off The Catholic Church

britney-spears-prayer.jpgHey God,

Waddup. It’s your girl Brit – remember me? I know, I know – long time no pray. Sorry about that. I got busy marrying a couple people and I had some babies and – oh you probably know all this stuff, huh. Anyhoo, I need to talk to you about something – no, not the flashing problem. I’m trying to wear underwear now, thanks. Here’s the thing – I did a bunch of sexy pics for my new album that feature me posing on a priest’s lap (not a real priest, obviously!) in one of those confession booth thingies. Now all these leader-y people in the Catholic church are like, super mad at me! I was just trying to be proactiv provocative and stuff – that’s why people pay attention to me! I wanna make sure you and I are still cool because you’re like my main homie – even if I don’t act like it I’m still totally religious-y. I wear a lot of necklaces with diamond crosses on them and I’m totally shouting you out! Okay, I think my hot pockets are done so I should stop prayin’ now and go eat.

Oh also, I pray that lotttttssss of people buy my new album today. Please?

Tuesday: No Nicotine for Nicole Richie

Phew – now all the singer has to worry about is the charges from that pesky Waffle House beatdown. [People]

Nicole Richie Negs Smoking Rumor
It was alleged that the starlet was spotted smoking in NYC, but her rep reports that Nic is is nowhere near the east coast. Better take it back before Joel kicks some ass! [Us]

Britney Causes Late-Night Craziness
The singer and her gal pal Alli get pulled over last night and all hell breaks loose – including some drunk dancing on the side of the road. Amazingly, Brit was not the booty shaker – this time. [TMZ]

Did Barack Obama Diss Brad Pitt?

The presidential candidate may have rejected Pitt after the actor offered his endorsement services to Obama’s campaign. Finally – someone who’s not been bitten by the Brangelina bug. [NYDN]

Lindsay Looks Hot for AA Meeting
She looks like she’s going clubbing, but instead she’s sexing up an LA medical Center at her AA meeting. The 12 steps never looked so good (and tan). [x17]

Thin Man Moves On: RIP Porter Wagoner

porter.jpg

Country music fans know that it’s one of life’s great pleasures to hear Porter Wagoner bounce his way through a shuffle or crawl his way through a ballad. The lanky singer, who died yesterday in Nashville at the age of 80, could be a chilling vocalist regardless of of the style. Wagoner is known for being one of the most dapper entertainers in country music – onstage he often sported one of the exotic suits designed by the famed designer Nudie Cohen. He’s also the bandleader who brought Dolly Parton out of Eastern Tennessee obscurity in the late ’60s. Earlier this year, after a lifetime of hits, he cut a gorgeous new disc of hardcore country tunes; it was produced by Marty Stewart, shown with Porter in the picture above.

T.I. Free: Farrakahn Screams “Set Up”

ti-102907.jpgRapper and assault weapons lover T.I. is back home after posting $3 million in bail – $2 million of it in cash! You could make a fort out of all those dollar bills. All T.I. could say as he left the courthouse on Friday was, “Due to the severity of the situation, I can’t say much more.” It’s a good thing we can! The rapper is now stuck at home and can’t leave except for medical and court appointments, and the only other people who can live with him are his kids and girlfriend. What the hell are they going to do together for all that time? One fun game is to debate whether or not the current gun charges are all just a “set up.” According to Louis Farrakhan that’s exactly what’s happening to the star, and he’s also hypothesized that Little Wayne is next on the chopping block. You never know – we’ve heard crazier stuff before. Maybe T.I. just thought he was heading to buy some bootleg DVDs – not a bunch of machine guns and silencers.

Are you down with the set up theory or do you think T.I. was gun hungry? [Yahoo. Image: Getty]

Prince Goes Crazy Over Home Video

By all accounts this kid appears to be just another adorable baby internet star who loves doing cute things like jamming to Prince while pushing a stroller on tape. Turns out he’s at the heart of a music copyright controversy after The Artist Currently Known as Lame freaked out and had his music label force YouTube to take down all videos featuring his tunes. Stephanie Lenz, mother of the little guy in question, fought back – and got her video (which had only been viewed by twenty-eight people when it was removed in June) back on the web, and she’s now suing Universal Music Publishing Group, Prince’s label. Apparently the tiny singer “scours the Internet” searching for videos that use his music, and Lenz’s clip was one of many that Prince personally requested to be taken down. Doesn’t this guy have better things to do? Perhaps a sequel to Purple Rain or a romp in the millions of dollars that he surely keeps stocked in the pool in his backyard? [ABC News]

Court Makes Britney Crave Drugs & Sex

britney-spears_1029.jpg“Eat it, lick it, snort it, f*ck it.” Those are the words of Britney Spears, who hooted the tasteful statement at reporters on Friday when asked in the courthouse how her custody hearing was going. Her provocative response offered great insight into how she’s doing — you just need to dig a little deeper into her words to understand her thoughts. Here’s what Brit was trying to tell us:

Eat it: Ohhhhh — we get it. The singer is pissed off at K-Fed’s girlfriend for revealing that her ex freaked when she would guzzle vodka drinks and then breastfeed their boys. Alcohol has nutrients, ya’ll! She was just trying to keep those kids healthy.

Lick it: Britney has a new boy toy — football star Tony Romo — and she wanted us to know what kind of kinky things they may or may not be up too! The two hung out and partied together Friday night after her hearing, toasting Britney’s earlier tears.

Snort it: No, she’s not talking about cocaine! She’d be like, wayyy more obvious about it if she was. She’s trying to tell us how much she was crying during her court hearing on Friday — and not because she may not get her kids back. Brit was just upset that no matter what she did, she couldn’t get her hair and sunglasses to look good!

F*ck it: In this case, Britney means what she says. Eff this crap with her kids — she just wants to party! Chances are when the judge’s ruling comes back this week (presumably in favor of the Fedster), she’ll finally get a chance to celebrate her new life as a single woman. Baby bottles of vodka for everyone! [Image: Getty]
