The "Gone Days" video opens with Stray Kids in a classroom scene. The singers are then seen rebelling against a teacher wearing a horse mask.

Chagor, chairman of South Sudan's United Movement opposition party, who helped negotiate the peace talks. He told The Associated Press it looks unlikely that Mach...

Tom Petty: The American rebel died of heartbreak

Entertainment
From the moment he saw Elvis, Tom Petty wanted to be a musician. But his unassuming style would make him the antithesis of rock'n'roll. His melodies were so classic they were easily overlooked; his lyrics so straightforward they suited everyone and no one in particular.But somehow, in a career spanning more than four decades, Petty's greatest hits have gradually become the soundtrack to our lives."When I met Elvis, we didn't really have a conversation. I was introduced by my uncle, and he sort of grunted my way," Petty said, of the moment he decided he wanted to be a rock star."I was really young and impressionable.
