As soon as the pirates get a blast of Britney, they move on as quickly as they can.
Britney Spears’s music is used to fight off Somali pirates. Really. Not kidding. Seriously.

At Kansas City’s Kauffman Center for the Arts, Gill walked up to the picket line where people carried placards saying, “God Is America’s Terror.”

“Vince Gill, what in the world are you doing out here?” a woman on the line asked.

“I just came to see what hate looked like,” he said.

“Well, more importantly,” the woman said, “what are you doing with another man’s wife?”

“I came out to see what hatred really looked like in the face.”

On Sunday Vince Gill did something most country singers avoid: He went out of his way to confront a fringe church group

You have to see the ‘Breaking Bad’ theme song played with actual meth lab instruments. Says the artist

I don’t know anything about making meth but a little Googling let me know that if you come across a meth lab you might find, among other things:

- propane cylinders

- rubber tubing

- paper towels

- coffee filters

- laboratory beakers

- measuring cups

- buckets

- plastic bottles

- frying pans

Other than the guitar, all of the sounds in this piece were produced using the items above, with minimal effects and some speed adjustments to change pitches.

Grab the mp3 here.
