Who F Bomb ABC
BW&BK reports: Those rowdy rock stars have been at it again. A TV watchdog group filed a complaint against ABC on Thursday because THE WHO sang the real lyrics to ‘Who Are You' during the Live 8 concert.

In its complaint, the Parents Television Council said the band's performance July 2 included the "Who the f*** are you" line.

"The program was aired on a tape delay, which should have given ABC ample time to edit all obscenities from the concert prior to broadcast," said Tim Winter, executive director of the PTC. "ABC took steps to edit other profanity from the broadcast. But given the time of day that this program aired, the broad family appeal of the Live 8 event, as well as the program's PG rating, ABC should have been more diligent."

Grohl on Cobain
antiMusic - Trent McMartin Special Report reports: Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl spoke candidly recently to Austin Scaggs of Rolling Stone about his relationship with the late Kurt Cobain. When asked why Cobain or Nirvana made him feel so insecure, Grohl replied, "When I joined Nirvana I was the fifth or sixth drummer -- I don't know if they'd ever had a drummer they were totally happy with. And they were strangers. There was never much of a deeper connection outside of the music."

The usually private Grohl has never really publicly discussed Cobain at such great length as he does in this interview touching upon various topics as Cobain's sometime dissatisfaction with Grohl's drumming, the pressure of being in Nirvana, the MTV Unplugged performance and the time leading up to Cobain's death.

Pixie Scores Weeds
Press Release reports: In addition to being the guitarist for one of the most influential and beloved bands of all-time, PIXIES' guitarist Joey Santiago is forging a career in television. Over the past few months in-between Pixies' reunion dates, Santiago has been holed up in the studio scoring the original music for "Weeds," the new Showtime original comedy series that debuts August 10. "Weeds" stars Mary-Louise Parker, Elizabeth Perkins and Kevin Nealon, and looks at "typical" family life in the suburban neighborhood of Agrestic, CA where recently-widowed Nancy Botwin (Parker) makes ends meet by becoming the neighborhood pot dealer. 

"This is a lot of fun and something I can continue to do when I'll embarrass my kids by being on stage," joked Santiago. "Scoring a TV series is a lot different than playing in a band, the pace and deadlines are completely different, but once you get into the groove, it's really great."

Hailed as "the most talked-about comedy in ages" by Newsweek, "Weeds" will air on Showtime Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00PM. [see full story for more including a Frank Black update and Pixies tour dates]- Click Here for the Full Story

...Lamest Songs Special
We're taking a break over the next couple weeks from our Artist Top Five lists to bring you the 101 Lamest Songs of All Time. Our writers and readers were asked to nominate the songs for this special and we've compiled the nominations into our definitive 101 Lamest Songs of All Time list. 

Over the next two weeks we'll be rolling out the list each week day. We're starting backwards with final 10 and will be working our way back. Also to do something a little different we'll also be revealing one song from the Top 10 each week day in the Day in Rock report with comments on why each song was selected and came out at the top of the lame list. 

1) Nookie - Limp Bizkit
Limp Bizkit is the poster child for all that is wrong with popular music. Ever since they first infected popular culture with their jock rock sounds, they have been responsible for some of lamest music ever produced. "Nookie" takes the prize not only for the lamest Limp Bizkit song but the lamest song period with lyrics that could have easily been written by a 1st grader. In short, "Nookie" is the musical equivalent to a fart joke. The only problem for Fred Durst & Co is that the joke is on them! 

Click Here to find out which songs landed in the 91-101 slots and to post your comments and submit artists for the next Lame list. 

Wait there is more!
