Which OFFSPRING fan wants to be a millionaire? According to OFFSPRING's official website, their new album will be available to download in its entirety, free of charge. And in the spirit of Regis Philbin, any downloading fan will be entered in a drawing for a 1 million dollar prize. (And folks, that's money put up by the band themselves!) Look for the first downloadable single, "Original Prankster," to become available September 29. The rest of the album, Conspiracy of One, will be online soon after. The millionaire will be announced on MTV November 14, coinciding with the commercial release date of Conspiracy.
George W. Bush better back off TOM PETTY. Rolling Stone reports that representatives of TOM PETTY have sent a cease-and-desist letter to the presidential hopeful telling him to stop using PETTY's 1989 single "I Won't Back Down" on the campaign trail. The letter stated that the use of the song creates "the impression that you and your campaign have been endorsed by TOM PETTY, which is not true." Similar problems have arisen with Bush's use of songs by JOHN MELLENCAMP and STING while on the campaign trail.
OASIS releases something Familiar. CDNOW's Allstar reports that a double live album is on its way from OASIS, and will include their entire July 21 concert at Wembley Stadium in London plus bonus tracks. The US release of this live album on November 14 comes one day after the UK release of a VHS/DVD of the same Wembley gig. No word yet on whether the video will be released here and vice versa.
