Who Cares? / Gone Daddy Gone



"Who Cares?" and "Gone Daddy Gone" are songs performed by Gnarls Barkley and are featured on their debut album, St. Elsewhere. The songs were released on 2006-11-06 as a double A-sided single from that album in the United Kingdom. A week later, on 2006-11-13, the single debuted at #60 in the UK Singles Chart.

"Gone Daddy Gone" is a cover of the Violent Femmes song of the same name. The song peaked at #26 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart, and at #35 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart.

On Friday, September 29, 2006, the music video for "Gone Daddy Gone" premiered on MTV, MTV2 and Much Music. Directed by Chris Milk, who directed the video for Kanye West's Touch the Sky, the video features vocalist Cee-Lo, producer Danger Mouse, and the orchestra as carpet insects who spot a lovely young woman and chase her, getting slaughtered one by one.

A video was also made for "Who Cares?", featuring Mario Van Peebles as a bored Blackula unsuccessfully hitting the bars for a victim, doing routine errands, and finally attacking a young man and watching TV with him.

Gnarls Barkley's MySpace account featured screencaps of the video as the background to premiere with the video. The video has also premiered on MySpace's Music Video section.

The song "Gone Daddy Gone" is also featured in the soundtrack for the video game Tony Hawk's Project 8.Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts.
