Levon Helm, drummer and backing singer for '70s rock band The Band, passed away earlier today. Originally the backing group for Bob Dylan and other musicians, The Band (as they started calling themselves) began releasing their own material and produced such classics as "The Weight" and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Their 1976 farewell concert served as the basis for Martin Scorsese's concert documentary The Last Waltz, and it (as well as the live album of the same name) is a goddamn classic. Look it up now if you haven't already.

(And on the same day Greg Ham of Men at Work died, too. Sad day!)

Sure, British pop singer Elsie COULD force you to watch a music video where the story is already written and you can do nothing but watch it unfold. But why do that when she can give YOU the power to control the action?

It's Friday! But not just any Friday. Today is the one-year anniversary since the Queen of Music FAILs, Rebecca Black, graciously blessed YouTube with her music video "Friday." The Internet has never been the same since.

Relive the awe and wonder of the original video. Recall where you were and how you felt when its sweet music and sublime choreography first graced your senses. Then scroll through our scrapbook of favorite "Friday" moments and view the homages that others have made to the music that changed our lives forever.
