Sleeping With Sirens and MGK get lost on an island in their "Alone" video.
We don't often go "WUUUT!?" when listening to music, but today is not one of those days. Because, despite our major fandom, we kinda had that feeling after hearing Sleeping With Sirens' "Alone," which sounds like it was engineered in the lab of some sort of evil scientist hell bent on world destruction. The Orlando scene-core act also take that evil scientist / world destruction concept literally in their "Alone" video, which depicts the five-piece trapped in a scary-looking sci-fi predicament with hip-hop mainstay MGK. Will they make it out alive? Will the power of rock and roll save us all? And WTF is MGK doing here? We'll have to watch to find out!

MGK is after the dollars in his new song, "Peso," featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill.
When MGK says he needs the dollars, we believe him. Dude did have to make grilled cheese sandwiches with an iron at one point in his career! So when he rhymes about getting paper on his new song, "Peso," featuring Pusha T and Meek Mill (from his forthcoming Black Flag mixtape), we DEF buy his hunger. Though we must warn you, MGK, the exchange rate for pesos is way less than American dollars, so you're gonna need, like, A TON more than you probably anticipated.

MGK hits the streets of L.A. with pro skater Ryan Sheckler for his "Skate Cans" video.
MGK's been everywhere lately: Not only is Mr. Kelly prepping a follow-up mixtape to his amazing Lace Up, but he's just wrapped up his 2013 MTV Woodie Awards hosting duties (and we've learned of his proclivities for nipple clamps). Nowadays, the "Wild Boy" is back in the music game with his latest video for "Skate Cans" (from the forthcoming Black Flag), and he's not alone -- MGK's joined by pro skater and former "Life of Ryan" star Ryan Sheckler!

Congratulations to our fabulous Woodies co-host (and "50 Shades Of Grey" appreciator) MGK for nabbing the ultra-coveted Woodie Of The Year (dude won Breaking Woodie last year, so we think this one's WELL DESERVED), beating out A$AP Rocky, fun., Kendrick Lamar, and more. And you know we wouldn't leave it there -- this year's Breaking Woodie award went to fellow rapper and Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt, who won over Alt-J, The Lumineers, Dillon Francis, and others.
