An Insanely Obsessive Infographic Tries (in Vain) to Diagram the Hip-Hop Galaxy

• We published a very revealing interview with Atlas Sound's Bradford Cox (is there another kind?), picked up road-trip tips from Tegan and Sara, got the scoop on the Big Pink's next record, and chatted with R.E.M.'s Mike Mills about the band's most underrated album.

• Dave Grohl moved Courtney Love to rant and rave. Occupy Wall Street inspired a Zack de la Rocha poem. (And encouraged Jay-Z to think twice about a dodgy business decision.)

• We counted down the ways Will.iam is gloriously ridiculous...

• And then attended a Guns N' Roses concert and did the same thing for Axl Rose.
