R.I.P. rock promoter Don Kirshner; Guess who tops Pazz and Jop?

By David Malitz

- Don Kirshner, who helped launch the careers of bands such as the Monkees and the Archies and created the television show "Don Kirshner's Rock Concert" died on Monday at the age of 76. NPR looks back at his influence in the music business. The Los Angeles Times has a compilation of video highlights of his career, including the above video of the Ramones performing on his TV show in 1977.

- It should come as absolutely no surprise to anyone that Kanye West topped the Village Voice's annual Pazz and Jop critics' poll. "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" garnered almost twice as many points as No. 2 album, LCD Soundsystem's "This Is Happening."

- Melissa Etheridge will take the place of Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong from Feb. 1 to 6 on the Broadway production of "American Idiot."
