Pre ordering albums is also dumb. Why are they going to sell out? That was the reason for pre ordering anything back when things were sane but now its just a cash inducing idiotic marketing scheme. Build the hype, throw them a bone.

Morrissey’s next album is being released under Capitol Records, meaning he’s now with Katy Perry and Neil Diamond…two not-so-quality artists. It’s pretty cringe-worthy and to be honest, seems like a bit of a cop out.
I am not so much concerned with the sound of his voice but the content of his words. When you’re basically living the lifestyles of the rich and famous, can you really hit home lyrically with the hood?
You have had your fill of Gene Simmons (or so it seems) so the Starman is up to bat to make sure that KISS never fades away and is perpetually in the media
She stomps up with this new ditty “You or No One” and although it starts off in that nasal pitch I tend to dislike it evolves into a perfectly perfect toe tapping pop tune. Wow, it sounds like 1986 but in a good way.
Again, not sure on its authenticity but its all in good fun anyway. Wonder what is on their riders now. Joyce and Rourke- well, do they even have riders or do they have to pack their own?
“I was pretty diligent with my detection work,” he says. “I didn’t want to put together a compilation where ninety percent of it had been bootlegged.”
This was, of course, the first night. But isn’t that your adrenaline fueled power play show? Let’s put it this way… the stage crashers infamous for hopping on stage for a hug at encore were so over zealous that Moz simply left.
“$500 in Taco Bell is a lot of food. I remember from back in the day,” he continued. “We trained ourselves when we first started this band. You can get full at Taco Bell for $2. That’s a lot of meals.”
Win Butlers vocals have never met a note it could match so it always becomes this sort of straining whine. Is it deep emotion or too much ego that pinches his chords and causes such pain?
Seeing the live performances of these guys basically show the extreme contrast in ‘now and then’ stage shows and fan behavior. It’s hard to imagine girls just sat in their seats and screamed seeing the Beatles and rip off their clothes and throw themselves on the stage for Crue
Nothing was worse than having the band up first! You then had to figure out where that stage was located and actually get there withing 10 min. Now months ahead of the tour we at least have a jump on things. The holy graile… the stage assignments.
t hearing news of Led Zeppelin releasing their first three LP’s again and this teaser video just reinforce the fact that yes, they were sexy beasts and yeah that was 40 years ago. But the patchouli wearing wanna be’s rejoice and you old timers can live in days past.
All we can do is hope its better than the past few which have sucked at levels never before known to man. Summer is coming right? Cuz it’s been 40 degrees and raining in the NorthEast and if it doest change soon there will be hell to pa.
I am not a hip hop scholar. I am a person who listens to the genre on occasion when feeling ‘hood. Of course that’s after I put in a full days white collar work in and drive to my suburban 3 bedroom home.
Personally I suggest prostitution events. You can hire a whore and escort services could advertise and hell its just sex right? As we crash through the barriers of ‘puritanical ideals’ I think we should open up all of them to daily routine.
While there is no doubt that music impacts peoples moods it is without question that there is a little lever in the brain that’s not flipped on properly if listening to a tune makes you blow your head off.
Think of all the burger joints youve gone to with interesting menu names. The deal there is that they arent known to the star themselves (or their reps) but when the advertising takes off.. a cease and desist mail arrives on your doorstep.
There is nothing new about Danny Wahlberg and the gang, and they sure aint kids. New Kids On The Block are not idiots and know that the people who loved them as kids are now full blow adults with cash to spend so ..hollah and grab it.
The former Oderus Ungerus is dead. Sadly the Gwar frontman died suddenly leaving his band mates bewildered and his fans wondering if it was a hoax. He also left a family in debt.
He is back..older balder and more light heatedly and you can expect new material very soon. But wait, dig this inspiration. This is not a classic rock cliche, its.. inspired by ballet.
Wonder how he got to Carnegie Hall anyway… practice practice practice. A two night stand June 24 and June 25, catch it if you haven’t already tired of this ‘solo’ tour.
Who the hell is Hatsune Miku? No one, its a hologram that sounds like a helium infused twiddle bug. The pitch alone should star a riot but in consideration of Gaga’s fans, this may just work
Increasing the number of plainclothes undercover security officers, placing drug-sniffing dogs at all entrances, and running background checks on all on-site vendors and employees. The latter of those plans being rather… idiotic but hey you do what you can.
They say that opposites attract but holy hell, its got to be more than that. But go to any rock show and there is a gorgeous girl gushing over the homeliest man with a guitar- its absolutely amazing.
Colin Meloy is the man I hate to love. I shouldn’t appreciate his whining bullshit but man oh man do I. Not so much a guilty pleasure but rather a pleasure that I find just as much confusing
But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!
So basically iPhone is just a powerful penis. Apple’s page for the commercial also states: “You have the power to create, shape, and share your life. It’s right there in your hand.” Indeed!
Its very hard to believe that Blondie has been around for forty years. Its astonishing actually since no one who was involved in the ‘first wave’ of new wave believes they’re over 20 years old.
In Western culture, there is no acceptance of the Canadian seal slaughter, and simply because someone bears the badge of Minister does not insulate them from being a disreputable thug. Murder is not debatable
She said that Morrissey’s words “reveal a total ignorance of the Canadian seal hunt.” The statement continued: Anyone who takes a careful look at the seal hunt will see that it is humane, sustainable, and well-regulated
Dated and old using ‘slam’ as its hook shows these guys are too old for new music. They’re out of touch. First off who the hell says ‘slam’ anymore anyway?
The video helps of course, to take the edge off of it all but it not only is simply bad- its confusing. Since your brain can clearly point out the two songs it almost feels like you have too many windows open on your computer. There is no binding factor.
Losing the vocal forces us to only endure the visual aspect of this collaboration from hell. The Black Lips are nothing more than a bar band. Non-descript , drum guitar bass for the bland set.
“This year the theme is more obvious than in all the years prior. Being that The Ramones were born in 1974, this year we’ll be celebrating not only the birthday of Jeff Hyman, we’ll be celebrating the birth of Joey Ramone, as well.”
Chrissie has been an icon and one of the handful of women with earned respect in the entire rock world. She has held it together with bad ass appeal and beauty of conviction. Every girl should aspire to be her, no one holds a candle to her.
Consider Rock of Ages the inspiration for the latest thought headed to Broadway. That infamous dance show “Soul Train” could be chuggin down the great white way sooner than you think.
There is nothing less macho than being that vague. Ace having an opinion is fabulous. Ace not getting to the point is lame. But this is over now. You wont hear anything more from KISS for a very long time.
We should be headed in to the days of reruns soon-but until then late night TV is alive and well and …well awful. Foster The People and Neon Trees? Proving that we are too tired and too distracted to care what we watch anyway.
There are songs that can dash me into fury just by their opening notes. Seriously, if you play “Insane in The Membrane” or anything by Cypress Hill I will rip your lungs out and leave you for dead.
The problem here is that Avril Lavigne was nearly 20 years ago and that school girl voice really has been done before. The shouting of “I Miss You” is the perfect lyric for the high school sophomore genre this band slot in to
I am always house proud when this event comes along. It’s great to see this event gain popularity and strength. This thing is run like clockwork rarely off time schedule (and by the way they actually give you the set times on their website!)
Year of Refusal was a peach though, so I wont cry too hard. But with a lack of label, morons like Amanda Palmer offering advise and some odd and numerous health issues its a wonder there was any more to be had from the quiffed wizard.
the typical boy smoking, drinking, spray painting, fighting and making out with a homeless girl. You know what every 12 year old boy does while on his bike in Idaho or wherever the hell this was filmed
I see no need to tip the merch dude who takes 20 min to throw me a t-shirt while staring down the boobs of a 14 year old girl. I will tip a merch person who actually provides customer service, the rest can piss off.
I gotta say this is one of the most diverse weeks ever and almost all of the shows are repeats. the Strypes, Frank Turner, Broken Bells are just a few of the more interesting weeks I have seen in a long time. Oh it still sucks but not as hard as weeks past.
In tribute to Imans ability to see Cat live at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, I spent an entire day listening to his catalog. I then went on to provide you a nice consumer guide to most of the discography. No muss, no fuss, just the facts.
Let’s face it kids this show is a one season wonder. As the creative minds of television search in vain for their next big cash cow, things like this are bound to show up.
His showing on Jimmy Fallon nearly sent me into cardiac arrest. Older and behind dark shades he performed a medley of “First Cut Is The Deepest” and “Wild World” accompanied by The Roots. First off The Roots need to chill, between this and their hanging out with Elvis Costello I’m getting a bit jealous
Its disturbing and annoying and that is exactly what this genre is all about. Anthemic? Nah. Memorable? Yes. At least he is over that whole dance techno thing he dabbled in.
