Oh god, is it too soon for "disco is dead" jokes? We on the internet don't have a filter for that kind of thing. Regardless, the 5-time Grammy winner and Queen of Disco, Donna Summer, passed away this morning at the age of 63 following a battle with cancer. She was known for such hits as "Last Dance", "Hot Stuff", "She Works Hard for the Money," and "I Feel Love."

This is supposedly meant to teach kids about death, but it'll leave them with more questions than answers.

You may have already heard how Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe was arrested in Prague for the 2010 death of a concertgoer. The internet (particularly the Metal Memes subreddit) reacted in characteristically swift and tasteless fashion. If it isn't too soon, it's probably not on the internet.

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!)
