The train explosion could be felt for miles in Rosedale, a few miles east of downtown Baltimore, where residents could see a towering black column of smoke rising into the air after the blast.

There is nothing like listening to Stephen A. Smith drop names, places and other various references to his many friends in the sporting world when he's on ESPN's First Take morning program or breaking down the NBA on various other broadcasts. A lot of people don't like his shtick, but let's face it, most of the big-time personalities on sports television mimic talk radio these days: the louder and more emphatic you say it, the better. You don't have to be right. Or wrong.

If there's one thing to be admired about Icona Pop -- and there are actually many! -- it's the utter shamelessness with which this Swedish electro duo puts its point across. Few pop acts, for instance, have ever captured the brat-tacular glee of being young as effectively as Icona Pop does in its monster stadium-rave hit " I Love It ," in which Aino Jawo and Caroline Hjelt dismiss some old dude with thrilling disdain: "You're from the '70s, but I'm a '90s bitch. " So Pop & Hiss can't really claim to be surprised by how openly the video for the group's latest single, "All Night," doubles as a commercial for Absolut -- specifically for the Swedish vodka maker's new Absolut Tune, a grim-sounding combination of vodka and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
