Producer Danger Mouse and rap artist Cee-Lo make up Gnarls Barkley. In April, their first album, St. Elsewhere, was released and available for download on iTunes. The hit song is called “Crazy,” which hit #1 in the UK, Ireland, Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand; it’s highest point thus far is #35 in the U.S.

At the 2006 MTV Movie Awards, Hayden Christensen won for “Best Villain.” Hayden vs. Ewan McGregor lost to — what a surprise — Angelina Jolie vs. Brad Pitt in the “Best Fight” category. McGregor was also nominated as Obi-Wan Kenobi, but lost to Christian Bale (Batman Begins) for Best Hero.

In addendum: Gnarls Barkley is Alternative / Soul / Experimental music.

    Hardly rap music. Check out his MySpace page, which has the track. http://www.myspace.com/gnarlsbarkley

    That isn’t even rap, that’s more like soul and/or R&B, and I actually like that song, it didn’t ruin anything.
