Eduard Khil, or "Mr. Trololo" as he was known to millions on the internet, died today of complications following a stroke. He was 77.

Khil enjoyed popularity as a singer in Soviet Russia during the '60s and '70s before stepping down from the public stage in the early '90s. Then, in 2010, Khil achieved the dubious honor of Internet fame after a video of a 1976 televised performance went viral.

Khin replaced the lyrics of the song, titled "I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home," with alternating "lololols" and "lalalalas" because he was afraid the Soviet government would censor the original lyrics. Which proves that in Soviet Russia, memes make you.

To be fair, we never talked about her while she was alive because you never know what you've got until it's gone. #bigyellowtaxi #jonimitchell #notcountingcrows

It's always a bad idea when a metal band messes with Prague rock. Yesterday, Czech authorities arrested Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe and charged him with manslaughter shortly before the band's scheduled show at the Prague Hard Rock Cafe.

The charges refer to an incident from a 2010 show at the Club Aberton in Prague, when a fan bum-rushed the stage and sustained injuries to his head after a fight with Blythe. Who started the fight? Was the fan just trying to give Blythe a hug? Has Blythe entered into an unholy covenant with Satan contingent on sacrificing a fan every two years? Details are still forthcoming.

Update: The band's publicist is saying that the fan in question tried to rush the stage twice before security pulled him back. The third time, Blythe pushed him back into the audience, where he hit his head (thanks, Darkst!)
