Trailer Released For Slipknot Frontman’s Roast

Elton John called. He wants his suit back.

I will not be listening to the roast of Corey Taylor tomorrow when it airs on Sirius, although I have a subscription. I honestly just don’t give enough of a fuck to tune in. Corey Taylor’s one of these dudes I could take or leave. I’m just not all that interested in him. But if […]

Kiss Appear On “American Idol” With Winner

Caleb with Gene

Fuck me, man. I had no idea “American Idol” was actually still a thing. Legitimately. But I guess it’s still around. Last night, Kiss performed with the show’s eventual winner, some pudgy fuck named Caleb Johnson. He’s 23 and beat out 17-year-old Jena Irene. Johnson swapped lines with Kiss frontman Paul Stanley on “Love Gun” […]

Last night was the second annual “Metallica Night” at AT&T Park in San Francisco. As such, Metallica were on hand to perform “The Star Spangled Banner” just before the San Francisco Giants took on the Miami Marlins. Watch that below, suckers.

Video: Revocation Rock New Joint In Missouri

Revocation

Last night, Dave Davidson and the rest of Revocation ran through a new song before a live audience in Missouri. Don’t say the band’s never given you anything, Kansas City. Below, there is some footage shot by a dutiful fan during the set. The new song is called “Madness Opus,” and presumably will be on […]

Black Veil Brides Guitarists Mistaken For Chicks

Black Veil Brides

The dudes in Black Veil Brides look like the chicks from “The Craft” basically, and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn this is a common occurrence. Black Veil Brides guitarists Jake Pitts and Jeremy “Jinxx” Ferguson were saved by lifeguards in Australia, and it was all captured on tape for the Australian reality TV program, […]

Cute Harp Twins Playing Iron Maiden? Yes, Please

harptwins2014_638

My ultimate fantasy’s always been twins on a trapeze, but alas, I am not a rock star, so this will likely never happen. Unless I hit the jackpot and can somehow hire twins to do me on a trapeze. I digress. The following is a video of identical twins Camille and Kennerly Kitt, who play […]

Chelsea Grin Guitarist Denies Plagiarism Claims

He looks like the kind of guy who'd bump into you and then get mad you touched him

So, I guess some bloggers have time to listen to shitty bands like Chelsea Grin, but I can assure you I do not. Hence, I didn’t recognize the resemblance between the new Chelsea Grin song “Angels Shall Sin, Demons Shall Pray” and a song by Born of Osiris, called “Ascension.” That’s also due in part […]

Down Release Video For “We Knew Him Well”

Down

They did. Catch that shit at the very end of this post. It’s actually a pretty cool clip. A performance video, but gritty, and well edited. I dig it. The clip was directed by JM Stelly and produced by Chris Trainor for LabProductions. “We Knew Him Well” is taken from Down’s new EP, Down IV […]
