Dads who rock ,

We always thought it would be cool to have a rock star for a dad. Think about it — he might be a tattoo-covered, foul-mouthed anarchist who parties harder than you ever will, but you'll never have to pay for a gig again, everyone will know your name, and girls will throw themselves at... your dad.

At the very least you won't need to explain where you've been all night — chances are your rock star dad was already there, twice, and he threw up on the bouncer.

From Kurt Cobain to Ozzy Osbourne, we take a look at music's dads who rock — the hidden paternal side where trashy legends of superstardom go to watch back-to-back episodes of Wow Wow Wubbzy and play with Bratz Dolls with their offspring. (Just don't challenge them to a game of Rock Band.)

'80s music greats: where are they now? , After a couple of years that could best be described as "tumultuous", Whitney Houston is back with an album that — shock! — is actually kind of awesome!

Her latest effort I Look to You, featuring the Alicia Keys-penned single 'Million Dollar Bill', is Whitney's first album since 2002's Just Whitney, and her first good album in more than a decade.

With Whitney back in the spotlight, we couldn't help but wonder: where did her fellow 1980s superstars wind up?

Australian Idol: Wildcard round First we find out who's through from Thursday's show: it's James Johnston and Kim Cooper. So I've correctly tipped six of the top 12, while you readers have tipped seven.

Once that's out of the way, the judges make a big show of pretending they're the ones who choose the Wildcards instead of the show's producers. Nine previously singers are given a second chance, while seven are sent home for good. Sucked in!

So who are our Wildcards...? All nine of them are in the full post.

New video: the dancing kids in this clip are way cooler than you There's nothing worse than being shown up by a kid... unless it's an adorable kid, and there's plenty of them dancing up a storm in the new track 'Maximus'.

The song is the latest from Australian DJ Beni, who's teamed up with fellow Aussie (and total hottie) Sam Sparro on 'Maximus', which is (per the press release) "akin to 'Kiss'-era Prince and friends dirty dancing at a Toga Party while ancient Rome burns down around them".

Wha...? All you really need to know is that the video is crammed with youngsters who could dance you under the table. Check out the world exclusive premiere of the clip right here on MusicFIX.
