Michael Jackson Molestation Case Dismissed By Judge

(Radio.com) Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff ruled on Tuesday (Dec. 19) that two corporations formerly owned by Jackson, and which still exist, cannot be held responsible for the late singer's alleged molestation of Wade Robson, reports USA Today.

"What the judge is saying is that if own a corporation or a company, you can hire people, use these people to facilitate your sexual abuse, use them to facilitate victims," said Robson's attorney Vince Finaldi, who plans to appeal. "So long as you're the sole owner of that corporation, the corporation can't be held liable."

The Jackson estate's attorney Howard Weitzman was pleased with the court's decision. "In my opinion, Mr. Robson's allegations, made 20-plus years after they supposedly occurred and years after Mr. Robson testified twice under oath -- including in front of a jury -- that Michael Jackson had never done anything wrong to him was always about the money rather than a search for the truth."

Singled Out: Steep Steps' Game of Thrones (in The Upside Down)

Electronic production duo Steep Steps have been turning heads with their mashup "Game of Thrones (in The Upside Down)" and to celebrate we asked Tony Correlli to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

I was working on some monosynth sounds one night and randomly started playing the beginning of the "Game of Thrones" theme. It was fun, so I started recording it, taking the medieval-sounding parts of that arrangement and interpreting them as synth patches. The more layers I tracked, the more it reminded me of "Stranger Things", so I started to dial in those kinds of sounds and worked them into the chords and time signature of the "Game of Thrones" theme.

It really came together quickly. I sent it to Athena and asked her to vocalize the melody. She didn't seem too interested since she hadn't seen either Stranger Things or Game of Thrones at the time. A bit discouraged, I shelved the idea until late one night after we finished another song and I brought up the ProTools session with the tracks. She was ready to crash, but seemed to get an idea on how to vocalize it and hopped up to grab the mic. She did it in just a few minutes. Her voice instantly transformed the track from a quirky little experiment into something that fit our sound and paid tribute to two cool series that would normally be separated by a significant amount of space and time. It happened so quickly. We have thrown away other songs after spending much more time on them that that. There's a certain truth in that experience that bleeds over into other aspects of life.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch the video right here!

Imagine Dragons And Khalid Team For 'Thunder/Young Dumb and Broke' Medley

(Radio.com) At the 2017 American Music Awards, Khalid and Imagine Dragons joined forces for an unexpected (but totally perfect) mash-up of their songs "Thunder" and "Young Dumb & Broke."

The collaboration didn't end there. Now Khalid and Imagine Dragons have released a studio version of that ingenious medley for fans to stream. Inspired by the song's melodic similarities, the mash-up makes hay of the lines "Thunder" and "Young Dumb," striking a balance between the Dragons' pop-rock and Khalid's smooth R&B.

It sounded great live at the AMAs but fans of both artists can appreciate the polished studio record. Listen to a stream of the new studio version of the medley here.

Migos Release Pharrell Produced Track 'Stir Fry'

(Radio.com) Migos have released the new song "Stir Fry," produced by Pharrell. The cut will likely appear on the group's upcoming album Culture II, which is supposedly due for release early next month, according to The New York Times.

The record will be the follow-up to Culture, which came out in January 2017. "Stir Fry" is an upbeat track that features a shuffling beat, whistling samples, and spare, textural and melodic keyboards. While most of the song is rapped, a few short sections are sung. The lyrical wordplay in the tune touches on cash, fashion, girls, static, dancing and dead guys.

"Money's changing colors like tie-dye/ I'm just trying to get it, I ain't tryin' to die/ She got a bigger onion bowl that make the world cry," the group raps. The chorus for the song is simple, repetitious and catchy: "In the kitchen, wrist twist it like a stir fry (whip it)." Listen here.

Gwen Stefani Covers Wham's 'Last Christmas' On Fallon

(Radio.com) "Last Christmas" by Wham! has a special place in the contemporary Christmas music canon and countless artists have covered it: The song appears on Gwen Stefani's holiday album You Make It Feel Like Christmas and the No Doubt frontwoman stopped by The Tonight Show to perform it live.

Gwen's arrangement ditches New Wave synthesizers in favor of plucky So-Cal guitar vibes and a string section. "To write and be part of [fans'] holidays musically, that would be my dream," Stefani told host Jimmy Fallon. "It kind of sounds like a No Doubt record in a way."

Gwen got into the Christmas spirit with a flowing see-through floor-length gown and strands of garland all over the stage, as snowflake graphics fell behind her. Watch Gwen perform "Last Christmas" here.

Dashboard Confessional Released Animated 'We Fight' Video

(Radio.com) Emo is back in a big way. Dashboard Confessional have revealed a new animated music video for their track "We Fight," a striking hand-illustrated clip that captures the stark emotions of the song.

"I thought for sure it was just about how I found a place in the world, which was worth fighting for, which was the music scene that I come from," singer Chris Carrabba told Zane Lowe in a recent interview. "But then the political climate has changed in such a way that, almost days after writing that song, America started to feel really regressive somehow. And all these great strides we made during the last administration had been threatened to be undone and I realized that people have beliefs worth protecting, worth standing up for and I found a residence in that."

"We Fight" is taken from the band's forthcoming full-length, Crooked Shadows, due to debut Feb. 9. Dashboard Confessional will support the album with a slew of live dates in the new year, launching the band's headlining tour March 20 in Houston, TX. Check out the new clip here.
