Lynyrd Skynyrd namesake dies; Mariah Carey readies Christmas album; OK Go in campy video shocker

By David Malitz

- Leonard Skinner, the inspiration for one of rock's most famous band names, passed away at the age of 77. The former high school gym teacher was more a nemesis than an ally of the members of Lynyrd Skynyrd in high school, mostly due to his disdain for long hair.

- Another Mariah Carey album? One person who's excited is our very own Chris Richards. "Merry Christmas II You" will feature a brand new recording of “All I Want For Christmas Is You" which Chris calls the "BEST CHRISTMAS SONG OF ALL TIME." His capitalization.

- A central Virginia horrorcore rapper pleaded guilty to the murder of four people and was sentenced to life in prison. The underground rap genre is known for its extremely over-the-top, violent imagery.

- Ok Go with a gimmicky new video? Now I've heard everything. Watch the clip for "White Knuckles" above.
