The Irish rockers' new charitable track hit hard at Sunday's big game.
U2 gained maximum visibility at last Sunday's Super Bowl where the rockers debuted new single 'Invisible' to raise money for the charitable Red campaign in association with Bank of America. The track, which appeared on a commercial played during the football game, was launched to encourage viewers to support the charity.

For 24 hours after the ad aired, fans could download 'Invisible' for free via iTunes with Bank of America pledging to donate $1 (60p) to the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria each time the song is downloaded.

Cee Lo, Khujo, T-Mo and Big Gipp are back with 'Age Against The Machine.'
Cee Lo Green may have had a successful project as one half of Gnarls Barkley with Danger Mouse, and a hit solo song 'Forget You' that hasn't been forgotten, but he was keen to revive the Atlantan hip-hop act that gave him his solid foundation in the music biz.
