Before Katy Perry danced with a Left Shark and kissed a girl (and liked it), she was a backup vocalist for Christian alternative rock band P.O.D.

This little-known fact was rediscovered today by Metal Sucks, and we can't stop laughing about it.

Perry was known as Katy Hudson when she provided vocals in 2006 for "Goodbye Now." She's featured in this music video starting at 3:36.

And she joined the band on The Tonight Show around the 3:24 mark.

Katy sure has come a long way.

Jim Marshall, whose pioneering Marshall amplifiers were behind some of the biggest names in rock and roll -- Jimi Hendrix, Pete Townshend of The Who, and Eric Clapton -- and who is considered "the founder of loud" and responsible for the sound of rock, has died.

From Marshall Amplification: "Your memory; the music and joy your amps have brought to countless millions for the past five decades; and that world-famous, omnipresent script logo that proudly bears your name will always live on."
