1. Britney Spears vs. Amy Winehouse, "Toxic Rehab" (remixed by DJ Paul V.)
The world's two least upstanding citizens collaborate through the magic of mash-up technology. [Popbytes]

2. Earlimart, "Answers and Questions"
With their delightfully sad, fuzzy, hookey songs, the only thing standing between Earlimart and stardom is an early, tragic death. Perhaps a drunken swim is in order? [Speed of Dark]

3. Bob Dylan, “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright” (Bootleg Version)
The Austin City Limits Festival is this weekend. For the uninitiated, it’s sort of like South By Southwest, but with bigger bands and fewer jerks. Dylan headlines this year, so practice up on your Dylan to English translations. [STG]

4. LFO, “Summer Girls”
Summer is now just a memory, but that’s okay, as this piece of trifle will remind you why summer sort of blows. However, it does contain the lyric “New Kids on the Block had a bunch of hits/Chinese food makes me sick,” which is way better than anything on Curtis. [Music for Rants]

5. Cause, “Ayo Technology” (Remix)
Nobody is having a worse week than 50 Cent. It looks like he’s losing the sales war with Kanye, he’s opened up beef with his label, chastised MTV, and now had his own song ripped apart by an unknown. Luckily, he has plenty of VitaminWater money with which to dry his tears. [Gillmore Boy]—Kyle Anderson
