Morning click: Black Eyed Peas are all-time #1 on iTunes; Dre sues Death Row; Limp Bizkit still good for a laugh
- As the iTunes store approaches 10 billion downloads, Apple has released a list of their ten best-selling songs, ever. The top slot goes to the Black Eyed Peas' "Gotta Feeling," and Lady Gaga, Flo Rida, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Coldplay and others share the top ten. The megastore plans to give away a $10,000 iTunes card to the person that downloads the 10 billionth song.
- Dr. Dre is suing Death Row Records claiming the label failed to paid royalties on his 1992 album "The Chronic" and reissued the record without his permission. In a statement, the rapper/producer's attorney Howard King says "When it came to paying artist royalties and honoring limits on Dr. Dre recordings that could be released," Death Row Records "forgot about Dre."
- In today's news that comes with its own jokes: A surprisingly clean-cut Wes Borland tells Guitar Edge magazine that Limp Bizkit's upcoming album "Gold Cobra" may have a "Daft Punk vibe." Could this be a sign that the band is maturing? Heck no, says Borland: "It's not like we all of a sudden grew up and started making smarter music." Phew-- glad he put that rumor to rest. Now let's all get back to ignoring Limp Bizkit.
