Five Finger Death Punch Dude Gets Face Tattoo

Driven to craft shitty rock

I feel like only rich rock stars and the criminally insane can pull of the face tattoo. Good thing Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch is one of those. Continuing a trend started by some of the Korn dudes, Hook has gotten some ink on his face. The word “Driven” now appears on his […]

Metal Dudes React To Robin Williams’ Suicide

Robin Williams

Yesterday morning, while we were all living, comedian and movie legend Robin Williams was busy dying. The dude suffered from serious depression and killed himself. Sad, for sure.

Korn Members Pray For Their Fans In Movie Trailer

Korn

Korn’s “Hater” Hits Radio

Korn

Whatever you do today, don’t listen to commercial rock radio. If there’s even such a station in your region. Personally, I never listen to terrestrial radio, unless its for traffic updates.
