M.I.A.'s got a new track; Vandals get sued again; James Murphy says talent is overrated

M.I.A.

By Ally Schweitzer

- M.I.A. has a new track, "Born Free." It's her singing vaguely political lyrics over Suicide's "Ghost Rider." Yeaahhh... so... how much does Suicide get paid for this?

- Punk band the Vandals have been sued by publishing company Reed Elsevier for satirizing the iconic Daily Variety logo on the cover of their 2004 album "Hollywood Potato Chip." Trouble is this already happened: the publisher sued them in 2004 for the same thing, and they agreed to remove the logo from their album and merchandise. Reed Elsevier is suing them again because the image still exists on the Internet.

- Quote of the day/inspiration for life?: To James Murphy, his band LCD Soundsystem is "pure evidence that having a decent idea is more important than being talented."
