On a recent trip to Los Angeles, Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino of the band A Great Big World took a spin downtown to visit the most inspiring places L.A. has to offer. With the help of Toyota, the group made stops at L.A.’s Chinatown to grab some food, walked the L.A. River (made famous by the movie Grease), and ended at the Orpheum Theater, the gorgeous restored movie palace.
It’s the start of a new month, which means that we have a brand new You Oughta Know musician that we’d love for you to meet.

Bleachers, this month’s You Oughta Know artist, channeled the spirit of the `80s for the band’s debut LP, Strange Desire. Given that the band’s founder, Jack Antonoff, is so fond of the decade he was born, VH1 decided to challenge him to a little quiz.
Last week on VH1 was all about the best years in music, birthdays and video vixens. We took a look back at the best music that came from the 90′s, Halle Berry turned 48, male video vixens got the spotlight and more.
Top 20 Countdown host Jim Shearer was joined by the four brothers that make up the South African alternative rock band KONGOS and today’s chat was all about video vixens. Since Video Vixen month is in full swing, it was only right that Johnny, Jesse, Daniel and Dylan revealed who made it on their list of favorite vixens. From “Wicked Game” Helena Christensen to “Blurred Lines” Emily Ratajkowski, the list of vixens go from hot to hotter. Plus, did someone mention Katy Perry in “Dark Horse”?
