Daughtry performs at Robinson Music Hall at 8 p.m. tonight. Tickets are $29.50 through Ticketmaster.

Fronted by Chris Daughtry, who finished in fourth place on Season 5 of American Idol, the band's self-titled album sold more than a million copies in its first five weeks making it the fastest-selling debut rock album of all time, thanks to his AI worshippers. On his website's forum, there are hundreds of posts like this one - from teeny-bopper to grown-up fans alike:

I have a serious case of OCD (Obssesed w/ Chris Daughtry), and I don't want a cure, I like this disorder, he is the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think of when I go to bed, and the time in between I rock out to the CD, it is the only thing I listen to anymore.

I live 3 miles away from the Rock-N-Roll Hall of Fame and I will make my first visit there when Daughtry gets inducted. It will happen, cuz Daughtry is the sh*t, so take a big WIFF.

        Since last fall, Memphis rap duo Lord Treadwell and Maurice Eloise XIII have been introducing common folks to what they're calling “aristocrunk.” Donning 18th-century wigs and ruffled attire, Lord T (Cameron Mann) and Eloise (Robert Anthony) spit tongue-in-cheek lyrics about popping “Pillz” and wearing “Million Dollar Boots.” Mann, who was called the “whitest of white-boy rappers” while enrolled at Tulane University, runs Memphis recording studio Young Avenue Sound, serving artists such as Yo Gotti, Ying Yang Twins, 8Ball & MJG and Al Kapone.
