For example: despite being named after the city, the band has never been to Tokyo, Japan - perhaps that's why it's spelled differently! Bill and Tom Kaulitz also revealed that they are naturally dark blond and not the jet black hair we're so accustomed to seeing on them.

Their favorite bands? An eclectic mix from Aerosmith to Kings of Leon to German hip-hop.

While American tour dates have not been announced, the band hopes that America will be ready for them after the...

Forgotten British pop star Rick Astley's 'Rickrolling' phenomenon has stepped up a gear - he is a surprise contender for the Best Act award at this year's MTV Europe Music Awards.

A Quick Look At Some Top Rap Feuds

August 22nd, 2008 9:12am EDT
The music industry has always thrived on fabricated competition to generate publicity; The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles vs. Elvis Presley, Madonna vs. Cyndi Lauper, Nirvana vs. Pearl Jam, and Jonas Brothers vs. Tokio Hotel, are all apt examples of this.

It is a platform where the verbal expression of ego driven beefs and putdowns have now become part of the art itself upon which success thrives. Whether recorded or done on video, it sets Rap music apart from a...
