The Beastie Boys have won $1.7 million in their trial against Monster Beverage Corp.
The Beastie Boys had sought up to $2.5 million for copyright infringement and false endorsement. Monster countered that it owed no more than $125,000, calling the case "illogical" and saying an employee had mistakenly believed the company had permission to use the music.

Our interview with Needtobreathe can be found here.
When we started the record, we thought we might call the record “Wasteland,” which is the first track. Really that’s where we were when we started out writing for the record. It was a pretty dark place for us as a band. We didn’t know the record was going to follow this path that it ended up taking. It took us more than a year to make the record, and a lot of the songs really follow the journey that the band was on. Obviously, we didn’t know where that journey was going to lead. The songs came out as the turns and changes happened to us.

FiveThirtyEight has begun crunching the numbers on boy bands.
Why does this matter? As I’ll get to later in this series, it can seem weird that a team of college sophomores are specifically targeting preteens with substantially sexed-up songs. I’m not trying to pull off one of those ludicrous “we need to protect our children” crusades, but no matter how we slice it: Isn’t it slightly off-putting that this has become, for a significant number of artists, a reproducible business model?

Workers at Guitar Center in Chicago, New York City, and Las Vegas have come together to form unions so they can negotiate for better working conditions in writing from their employers at Guitar Center and ARES/Bain Capital. They're looking for your support by signing this petition.
So we decided to come together. We're organizing with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union and we are asking the company to recognize our union and negotiate for a fair contract. With Bain Capital's track record, we need your support. Let Bain Capital know you support our right to come together for a fair workplace.
