Thanks for stopping by our site! While the site has come a very long way, this is still a work in progress. Huge shout out to Mario for all of his amazing work on the site and his killer Top 50 of 2013 list.

Now, we are well aware that any asshole can toss up a web page and make promises to independent musicians. Unfortunately, the music industry is inundated with companies that prey on musicians with the hopes of making a quick buck.

For those of you inexperienced with such companies, I have a good rule of thumb for you to follow.

A word about this list: This is a personal list of one of the members of Happy Dog Music, LLP. The following does not contain every song we would have liked to include from this amazing year in music and also has no proper order (despite being organized as a countdown). We did our best to organize and publish this list to make it an entertaining listen for you all. Enjoy the music and feel free to contact us for further information on how Happy Dog Music can help your music career.

Rick Ross Sues LMFAO For Copyright Infringement

Although it was technically filed in 2013, 2014 is seeing its first major copyright dispute. Rick Ross has alleged that “Party Rockers” LMFAO infringed on the copyright to the Rick Ross tune Hustlin’ in their 2011 hit Party Rock Anthem. Specifically, Ross alleges that LMFAO’s phrase “Everyday I’m Shufflin’” represents an unauthorized derivative work of his hook “Everyday I’m Hustlin’” from the aforementioned Ross tune.
