For The Record: Daft Punk, Swizz Beatz, Coldplay & More

· Great news! Robotic dance gods Daft Punk are in a Paris studio cooking up some new beats.

· Just weeks after three NYPD detectives were acquitted in the shooting of New Yorker Sean Bell, Swizz Beatz, Talib Kweli, Cassidy, and Styles P have all contributed to the track “Stand Up (A Sean Bell Tribute).”

· The latest Rolling Stone counts down the 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time. Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode” is #1; Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is at #10; and the Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” is at #18.

· Coldplay’s new single, “Violet Hill,” will soon join the “Guitar Hero” repertoire. Hmm, not much shredding to be had there.
