Boo hoo!

The HIGHly anticipated Aaliyah tribute album will never be heard!

While Drake announced plans to release a recording of some unheard samples from the late and great songstress, the heavy bashing it's gotten from family and fans has forced the rapping superstar to pull out.

And since Drake abandoned the project, producer Noah '40' Shebib had NO other choice but to put the project on the shelf to collect dust.

SO SAD!

MGMT Electrify Fleetwood Mac's Future Games

Filed under: Music MinutePerezTV

Hmmmm. Very… deconstructive? Noisy? A work of pure distorted genius?

We're not really sure WHAT to make of MGMT's etherial, cacophonous cover of Fleetwood Mac's Future Games, especially as it felt like our brainz were being munched on by some peircing musical insect within the first few minutes!

Take a listen (above) and if you can stick through the ENTIRE nine-minute medley, then so many props to you.

MGMT are one of the many talented contemporary bands twerking their favorite Fleetwood Mac songs as part of a tribute album titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me, to be released August 14th in the US.

And now that we've heard this interesting number, our appetites are whetted for SO MANY MORE Fleetwood Mac infusions!

Future Games was originally written by the late Bob Welch, who committed suicide in early June (R.I.P.).

Sad sad sad.

Main Man Records Responds To Joan Jett And Cherie Currie Lawsuit!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

They're gonna put up a fight!

In light of Joan Jett and Cherie Currie's lawsuit against Main Man Records for attempting to release a tribute album in homage to their band, The Runaways, called Take It Or Leave It: A Tribute to the Queens of Noise, without their permission, the record label has responded, claiming that the recording was made "with the best of intentions," and the proceeds were to raise funds for cancer research!

Furthermore, the label has yet to receive a copy of the suit, but plans to fight it when it comes.

Frankly, regardless of what the intentions were, if they don't have their permission, we don't see what makes them think it's okay to put this out!

What do U think?? Should this album get released?

Joan Jett Filing Lawsuit Over Unauthorized Runaways Tribute Album

joan jett and cherie currie filing lawsuit over tribute album

Kind of puts a damper on the whole "paying tribute" thing.

Joan Jett and bandmate Cherie Currie have filed a lawsuit against indie label Main Man Records, in an effort to stop them from releasing a Runaways tribute album without their permission.

According to Main Man Records' website, the album is a two-disc set, featuring covers of the band's songs by a variety of different artists.

The lawsuit says that Main Man used Joan and Cherie's names to promote the album without getting the proper permission first, and that an employee who used to work for Joan "used that connection to imply the project had her blessing."

Joan and Cherie are seeking "unspecified damages" in their lawsuit, but really they just don't want the album to be released.

Here's what their lawyer Oren J. Warshavsky had to say about it:

"This isn't about money. This is strictly about preserving reputation and quality that both Joan and Cherie are known for."

Guess we'll see how this plays out, but there's def something kind of gross about releasing a tribute album when the artists being honored are against the idea.

What do U think? Team Joan Jett or Team Main Man?

New Florence + The Machine!

Ooh! We likey!

Check out the latest - and its accompanying music video - from our beloved Florence + The Machine, a fantastic cover of Buddy Holly's Not Fade Away, which is also featured on a tribute album for what would be icon's 75th birthday, called Rave On Buddy Holly (above)!

Good lord, is there anything she CAN'T sing?!

And we LOVE that they shot the video in New Orleans! It suits the aesthetic of the song PERFECTLY!

Well done, gurl!
