Peeps Of The Year

Rolling Stone has picked their People of the Year; here are 5 of my fave pictures:

They picked some interesting people, I suppose. You can see who else they slected here HERE.

Additionally -- in unrelated news, Rolling Stone is reporting that the new Mötley Crüe single If I Die Tomorrow is actually a left-over Simple Plan song. "We loved the song when we wrote it. But it didn't really sound like it belonged on the album, and we had it kicking around," says drummer Chuck Comeau, who co-writes all of Simple Plan's songs with singer Pierre Bouvier. "It's pretty dope to be thinking that such an influential, huge band chose to work on it for their comeback." After Rock produced the Montreal rockers, he went to work with Motley Crue, and knowing they were looking for new material to add to the best-of package, Red, White and Crue, brought "If I Die Tomorrow" with him. "Bob played them the song, and they really liked it. [Crue bassist] Nikki Sixx worked on some stuff on it, changed a few lines, then they recorded it," explains Comeau. (Sixx's changes, though minor, were just enough to warrant a co-publishing credit.) How the mighty have fallen.
