B.B. King, Mick Jagger, and a host of other notables performed at the White House last night. They (finally) managed to get President Obama to sing a chorus of "Sweet Home Chicago." Not bad!

In case you missed it last night or everywhere else around the interwebs today, Obama totally did a sexy slow jam with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots on Late Night. He's definitely earned the smooth pickup artist vote.

Just a week after Limbaugh said some nasty things about a college student advocate for reproductive rights, the band Rush sent a cease-and-desist notice to Rush Limbaugh for appropriating their music for "political purposes." If it goes to court, I can't wait for the internet to milk a "Rush vs. Rush" case for all it's worth. Maybe a mashup of Limbaugh's radio show with "Finding My Way."

It's not as if that era really needed more musicians speaking out against the right. That market was saturated.

The Party Party is an all inclusive political party founded by Andrew W.K. and it's just what America needs during this crapshoot of a political cycle. Is it 100% real? Who knows. Just watch and enjoy.

I'm honestly not sure if this is supposed to make me vote for or against Ron Paul.

If you haven't already heard, outspoken Detroit rocker Ted Nugent was questioned by the Secret Service for what could have been considered threatening statements about President Obama (specifically that he, Nugent, would be "dead or in jail" if Obama was re-elected in the fall). Luckily, Ted's colorful history doesn't exactly leave anyone lacking for comebacks.

The same genius (and we don't use that word lightly) who made Mitt Romney rap "The Real Slim Shady" is back, this time to make Barack Obama sing LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It." As good as it is, I still want to know what reason the president had for saying "sexy."

We haven't kept up with this story as it developed so here's a quick update: Last February, three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot entered Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral and performed a "punk prayer" at the altar, blasting Vladimir Putin's re-election and accusing Russian church leaders of holding Putin more sacred than God. The performance lasted less than a minute and they left when authorities asked, causing no property damage to the church.

After a trial that earned them support from feminist activists and musicians internationally, including Madonna and Björk, the band members were charged with "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" and sentenced to two years in prison. Their sentence might include time in a labor camp, where the threat of sexual abuse is pervasive.

Shortly after their sentencing, Pussy Riot released a new music video for their song "Putin Lights Up Fires, featuring footage from their cathedral performance and subsequent trial.
