Our friends at Pitchfork -- if there's one thing they know, it's how to hate with style. Today the point-lovers set aside their trusty numeric conventions for an unranked and totally amusing list of the year in terrible album covers.

New Prince – “PFUnk”

The capitalized "FU"'s important in Prince's new diss track, "PFUnk." Remember last week when the Purple one was suing fan sites for using his likeness? Well, those PFans banded together as "Prince Fans United," claiming First Amendment rights. Looks like they won't go down for good without a good fight, which is obviously pissing off… More »

Justice Do The “D.A.N.C.E.” On Kimmel With Some Help From Rick James, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Prince, & Rod Stewart

"Alright, this is gonna be weird," is all Jimmy can muster by way of introduction, which is really the most perfect opener possible to a performance stacking the talent in this post title. Also could've said "this is gonna be awesome," which it totally is. The cam pans to Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay… More »

Prince Triple Hits Minneapolis

Really interesting to see how the Purple One has reclaimed his legend over the past few years; punchline worthy as ever, but that's only for his eccentricity -- these days it's like every live move he makes is massive headline material (crashing online ticketing systems in London, selling out $3,000 VIP shows in LA, etc).

New Muse – “Man Of Mystery”

British publications know how to woo us cheap music fans, don't they? Take for example a recent issue of the genre-coining rag New Musical Express, who recently gave away a 13-track compilation with their Muse-cover issue. Of course the disc didn't always live up to the 'new' musical part (see: the Lips' "Yeah Yeah Yeah… More »

Prince Shocked Foo With “Best Of You”

One of the many highlights of Prince's phalically delicious halftime show was also its most confuzzing: Prince using precious medley time to cover Foo Fighters?

Best Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever

Prince is 48. That's fun to think about while you watch YouTubes of the Purple One performing in the rain over and over and over today. Screw his physical ailments, Prince was four times as hip as any Super Bowl halftime show we can remember. From "Let's Go Crazy" to "Proud Mary" to "Baby I'm… More »

Ever Hear Of Jennifer Hudson?

The threshold to overexposure was crossed by about, oh, 9AM this morning for the Dreamgirls breakout star when we tried (in vain) to avoid a morning show with her image plastered all over it. And now that she's a bona fide Oscar favorite, it's just gonna get worse. That said, we're happy for the girl. More »

The music mavens at the venerable Time magazine have compiled their list of the "ALL-TIME 100" albums -- unranked and broken down by decade. We're not sure what's better: that only five albums of the past five years are among their 100 greatest, or that four of those five were by people… More »

New Prince – “Song Of The Heart”

The Artist Formerly Known As Relevant has a new tune streaming exclusively at AOL. It's a fun, little funk song with some kick-ass brass. Nothing earth-shattering, but we should note it's for the soundtrack to Happy Feet, an animated children's movie about animals. (No, it's cool -- even Westerberg does it now.) The movie i… More »
