Now this is what we call NEWS. Pogues singer Shane MacGowan got a new set of teeth! The frontman for the 80’s Irish punk band has long been renowned for his excessive drinking and lifestyle, resulting in numerous missing teeth. After many years, he realized his face was becoming distorted and spent a month in Spain having his dental damage corrected. In the UK, The Pogues were voted one of “50 bands you should see before you die.” We agree.

    If you’re going to get teeth, why not get some white ones? I know it’s the UK but please

    Please there are billions of things to do and see before you die and making sure God would approve would be the only way I make my choice.

    In most places in England, it’s not unusual to find that many people have just a single tooth — usually on the bottom, in the center — that they use for opening the pull tabs on giant cans of lager. They also consume a lot of soup, according to the Today program.
