When she began serving her prison sentence yesterday, sometime pop singer Lindsay Lohan joined the ranks of Lil’ Wayne, Boy George and Tommy Lee as another music celeb who has landed behind bars. To commemorate Lohan’s jail time and give her a soundtrack for her stint in an orange jumpsuit, Billboard.com compiled 15 tracks about the pitfalls of being locked up. From Elvis to Akon, maybe these songs will make Lohan’s hard time a little bit easier. Warning, explicit lyrics ahead.
