Veteran American indie-rock act OK Go has recorded a version of Morrissey's 1989 single "Interesting Drug", which includes the memorable line "There are some bad people on the rise." Just in case you were wondering which bad people OK Go has in mind, the band has released this video, which ought to clear up any confusion:
The group performed its version of "Interesting Drug"—with lyrics altered slightly to include a reference to "a Russian scheme designed to kill your dreams"—on The Late Late Show With James Corden last night.
Donald Trump's inauguration as president of the United States officially takes place tomorrow, but the festivities kick off this afternoon in Washington, D.C., with a concert featuring 3 Doors Down, Toby Keith, and some other total fucking jerks whose records you should never buy again. High-profile Trump supporter Kanye West will not be among the performers, because he apparently isn't sufficiently "traditionally American". Inauguration committee chairman Tom Barrack told CNN, "The venue we have for entertainment is filled out, it's perfect, it's going to be typically and traditionally American, and Kanye is a great guy but we just haven't asked him to perform. We move on with our agenda." Okay, then!
Moby has said he was asked to do a DJ set at the inauguration, but said he would only do so if Trump released his tax returns. Not gonna happen, but Moby did create a Spotify playlist featuring songs he might have played at the event, including Public Enemy's "Fight the Power" and Green Day's "American Idiot".
