What's trending

Just over a year after their drummer, Taylor Hawkins, died, Foo Fighters used a live stream to present his replacement: Josh Freese. The funny video showed the band talking in the studio as various drummers, including Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith and Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee, stop by. See the announcement here.

A new "Pink Panther" movie may soon be coming to a theater near you and with an unexpected star. "Hollywood Reporter" reports Eddie Murphy is in negotiations to star as Inspector Clouseau in a new version. The franchise began in 1963 with Peter Sellers as the bumbling French police detective. Since then, Alan Arkin, Roger Moore and Steve Martin have taken over the role.

Taco Bell officially launched a formal campaign to “liberate” the trademark attached to the term “Taco Tuesday.” Wyoming-based Taco John's won the trademark in 1989 and has aggressively defended it. Lawyers regularly issue Cease & Desist orders to stores and media outlets repeating their trademarked “Taco Tuesday.” Taco Bell needs more signatures at Change.org to convince the United States Patent and Trademark Office to “Free Taco Tuesday.” The fast-food company believes the phrase ought to belong not to one store but to “all who make, sell, eat and celebrate tacos.” NBA all-star player LeBron James attempted to trademark “Taco Tuesday” but was denied.
