Testament Selling Shares Of Song


Testament have turned up the shamelessness notch a smidgen. The thrash act was somehow convinced by its management that it was a good idea to attempt to sell worthless, useless “ownership” shares of their 2012 song “Native Blood,” entitling each shareholder to little more than lame “bragging rights.” “Guess what? I wasted money on nothing. […]

The Acacia Strain Release Unsettling Christmas Sweater


OK, so…I’m going to have a “Get off my fucking lawn” moment for a minute. Forgive me in advance for sounding like an elderly curmudgeon. I’m no fan of the metal-themed Christmas sweater trend that some idiotic band started just a couple of years back. I mean, I guess if you get off on being […]

“The Osbournes” To Return For Eight Episodes

Sharon Osbourne

Fuck me. Because there’s literally no offer Sharon Osbourne will turn down so long as the price is right, there will likely be another season of “The Osbournes” next year. The MTV reality show was a bona fide hit back in the day, but that was a long time ago. The show ended in 2005, […]

Gwar’s really pushing it. The band’s been slapping its name and logo on everything and anything as of late, and Gwar’s shamelessness is reaching epic new heights. Now, there’s Gwar cigars. Or Cigwars. Give me a break, man. Kiss is starting to get jealous of how many products Gwar’s got for sale. What’s next, Gwar […]

Rob Zombie Wants You Funding His Next Movie

Rob Zombie

OK, now, I can sort of understand little baby bands crowdfunding their demos and shit like that. But Rob Zombie is a fucking wealthy motherfucker. What’s he gotta crowdfund for? He just sold his mansion in Connecticut for a couple of bills. What the hell, man? Dude’s got loot. If he wants to make a […]

Gwar Fluids Are Here Too Soon


Dave Brockie’s been dead less than a month, and already, there’s a new Gwar product out on the market for you to spend your dollars on.

Metallica’s Drummer Tapped To Sell Booze To Danes

Lars' booze ad

That’s right, folks. Diminutive drummer Lars Ulrich is lending his likeness to a pair of Danish ad campaigns, designed to sell Carlsberg and Gammel Dansk. The Metallica drummer was chosen by Carlsberg to design a bottle for the company’s “Stand Out Collection.” Carlsberg created a six-minute marketing video with Ulrich in San Francisco and that […]

Strid, who “has become a pioneer in the melodic death metal genre with intense and powerful vocals,” is now available for hire.  Want a big name guest on your album? Call Bjorn. Need him to sing […]
